Doctor Who Books

In honour of Dr Who’s 50th Anniversary, I thought I’d share my little tribute of sorts. While everyone else was into Star Wars and Star Trek, I loved my Dr. Who books. The original series was often criticized for it’s rubber monsters, but let me tell you, there were no rubber monsters in my imagination.

  1. Very nice collection. I used to read the Doctor Who paperbacks in the Kitimat Public Library in the mid-seventies. In fact, I only knew of Doctor Who from those books, having never seen or heard of the TV show (which by then was into the fourth doctor, Tom Baker – my favourite.)

    Those books were some of the earliest science fiction I read, a genre I immersed myself in for years afterward.

  2. Thanks Geordie, yes, me too. I was more into the books and they allowed for quite the imagination, more than the TV show I imagine, and being in Ontario, Canada, you were lucky to get one twenty-minute episode a week so these filled the rest of the time very nicely!

  3. …And I’ve started watching the Tom Baker episodes again – So good!

    I love the special effects, rubber or not.
