April, 2020 - I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!

Book description:
From Hachette Partworks. Every fortnight, Doctor Who: The Complete History will take you behind the TV cameras to document the making of the world's longest running science fiction series from 1963 to the present day. From script to screen, you will discover how every adventure of all 12 Doctors was created. Written by the experts, Doctor Who: The Complete History is a must have for any Doctor Who fan.

Volume 17 (2nd delivered volume) of
Doctor Who: The Complete History features episodes starring The Third Doctor: "Colony In Space" - The Doctor and Jo are caught in the middle of a bitter conflict between colonists and a ruthless mining corporation on the desolate planet Uxarieus. Masquerading as an Adjudicator, the Master is searching for the Doomsday Weapon of an ancient civilisation, which he intends to use to rule the universe; "The Daemons" - Dark forces gather in the village of Devil's End when an archaeological dig releases Azal, an ancient Daemon from another world. Masquerading as the local vicar, the Master intends to take possession of Azal's psionic powers to rule the Earth, and only the Doctor stands in his way; "Day of the Daleks" - In the twenty-second century, the Daleks have conquered the Earth. The only hope for humanity is a small band of guerrillas who have travelled back in time, intent on changing events to avert this terrible future. Although sympathetic to the guerrilla's cause, the Doctor suspects that history may be repeating itself.

Doctor Who: The Complete History is a series of fortnightly published hardcover editions that will cover the complete history of the television series, covering everything from plot synopsis to pre-production, production, and post-production, cast and crew listings, and just about everything else that a fan of the series would want to know about the actual process of creating each of the episodes. Truly, I believe only a hardcore fan of the series will enjoy this series of books, but if you want some great, detailed information on the Doctor Who television series, this is it.
