      I hope it will cover all the episodes of classic to new in chronological order and have all the facts about all the monsters and companions and for the companions show information about what story’s there in,how they came and how they left! Also for the monsters show what story’s they were in and if they changed there designs show the design features and facts and what powers they have and show what there story’s are in chronological order! And also I want them to show the lost stories from 6th and 7th doctor! What do u want in this book?

      Hopefully it’s massive! If it’s going to show 50 years of doctor who history and characters and villains then it’s going to be huge! Hopefully 600 pages lol! What features are they showing in this book? If anyone knows or has any ideas on what they think is in it please fill free to tell me. And hopefully they have every single episode from classic to new series! And show all the tardis interiors including the 2nd tardis interior,library,clothes room,study,kitchen,hart of the tardis and all the companions rooms! And much much more!

    Do u guys think it will be like the ultimate monster guide?tell what u guys think.hopefully they will show all the episodes on it in chronological order from the unearthly child to the 2013 Christmas special! Also I hope it will be showing all the monsters from classic to new series and put tones of Infomation and show lots of pictures and Infomation about the story’s that the creature stared in and facts about it! Also I want them to do the same with the companions! If its going to be a encyclopedia of the 50 years of doctor who!

    • Connor

      December 31st, 2012 - 11:06pm

      Also they need to put all the tardis interiors inside and show all the rooms in it that they showed on tv like the pool and all the companions rooms and all the tardis console rooms designs including the 2nd controll room! I would also love to see if they put in the lost stories of the 6th doctors 23rd season and the seventh doctors 27th season! Also if they could talk about the time war and how the 8th doctor regenerated! And for each episode they should put a rating! So what’s you’r thoughts on these decisions and what do u want in the book?

    • Connor

      December 31st, 2012 - 11:10pm

      How many pages do u think this books going to be? I think abou 600/700 pages and it’s going to be a big book as well! So if it’s going to fit 50 years of doctor who’s history then about 600/700 pages long! What’s your thoughts guys?

    any idea on the price?

    • DoctorWhoFan101

      December 31st, 2012 - 10:01pm

      I imagine it’ll cost a fair bit of money. Seeing as it’s got everything jam-packed into it. Although, we’ll have to wait for the price, I guess.

  • That Snowman over there

    December 31st, 2012 - 2:06pm

    Sounds good.:D
    Not so keen on the cover though. 😕

    December 31st, 2012 - 1:29pm

    i really want this and the 2014 annual when it comes out

  • Tardis’nt

    December 31st, 2012 - 1:03pm

    i like the look of this, they could have put another classic monster on the cover though, the dalek looks very strange in front of the new series monsters!

    • TheWhomobile

      December 31st, 2012 - 1:13pm

      I think it looks quite good considering its age, it hardly looks dated at all which goes to show how they could have used them more in Asylum if they had wanted to.

  • duckter who

    December 31st, 2012 - 11:12am

    the doctor has a wonky head

    • Mr Evil Fez

    • doctorpond393

      December 31st, 2012 - 7:06pm

      No because then his quiff of hair would be the wrong way round.

    • DoctorWhoFan101

      December 31st, 2012 - 10:03pm

      Either way, I wouldn’t have noticed it until you pointed it out…

    • BisonTime

      January 6th, 2013 - 9:41pm

      Or maybe its how he posed for the picture, you never know with the doctor

  • TheWhomobile

    December 31st, 2012 - 10:59am

    Think I’m going to get this, especially considering this encyclopaedia includes classic stuff as well as new who stuff. And I love the cover with the Hartnell Dalek on the front!

  • Doctorwho4eva

    December 31st, 2012 - 10:27am

      December 31st, 2012 - 3:17pm

      So does my dad
      She was the worst companion

    • Brother of the Daleks

      January 2nd, 2013 - 1:22pm

      Donna was alright, until Russel T Davies turned the character into a huge deus ex machina. Besides, Rose, Adric, and Mel were definately worse!

  • Doom Dalek

    December 31st, 2012 - 10:25am

    I’m Gunna Get This

  • oscarwho

    December 31st, 2012 - 10:22am

  • Connor

    December 31st, 2012 - 10:11am

    Will this be like the doctor who ultimate encyclopedia? Will it have all the classic and new monsters and for the cyberman will they show like all the story’s give a little Infomation and about the monster and the design? And for the doctors will they show all the tardis interiors and all the doctor who episodes from classic and new and also all the companions from classic to new? Hopefully this will be worth it I hope so!

    • BisonTime

      January 6th, 2013 - 9:43pm

      erm nearly all the Classic monsters returning to the show have had a revamp, Daleks have changed, Sontarans have, and the main ones with the main change were the Silurians.
