A History of the Universe in 100 Objects

Doctor Who: A History of the Universe in 100 Objects
By Steve Tribe and James Goss

From a lipstick at the dawn of creation to a fob watch at the end of time, these 100 objects tell the story of the universe and the most important man in it: the Doctor. Along the way, civilizations will rise at the stroke of a match and fall to a sneeze.

Scarves will be knitted by the wives of prophets, and ray guns will be built by royalty. This fascinating book also explains the real-world history of the various objects – from the invention of the Loch Ness Monster legend in the 1930s to how long it would really take to send a message of universal domination.

It uncovers the hidden history of the Time Lords, presents an illustrated guide to invisible monsters, and explores the Rani’s wardrobe. Containing full-color photographs and exclusive artwork, A History of the Universe in 100 Objects is the essential guide to the most iconic items ever seen in Doctor Who.

    Interesting how they’ve used the Blood of the Cybermen’s Cybermat and the Ironside Dalek cardboard cut out. I’m also glad they’ve used classic series pictures, although why they chose the Master’s TCE for the cover is anyones guess!

    I assume that is temporary artwork? It’s got the old Tardis on it, and, near the bottom right, what looks like a 2006 promo shot of a Cyberman figure, that hasn’t had the white space inside the handlebars removed!

      I’m looking at the latest doctor who magazine right NOW and there is nothing in there about any objects in the history of doctor who, nor in what way they relate or differ to the real universe
