The Science of Doctor Who by Paul Parsons (A Review)

"Have you ever wondered if a sonic screwdriver could really work? How Cybermen make little Cybermen? Or where the toilets are on the Tardis? Doctor Who arrived on TV screens and through millennia, the journeys of the Time Lord have shown us alien worlds, strange life-forms, futuristic technoogy and mind-bending csomic phenomena. Viewers cowered terrified of Daleks, were amazed with the wonders of time travel, and sped through black holes into other universes and new dimensions. The breath and imagination of the Doctor's adventures have made the show one of science fiction's truly monumentalsuccess stories. BBC Focus edito Paul Parsons explains the scientific reality behind the fiction"
I love Dr Who, and I loved this book as well. It explained the scientific phenomena from across many of the different series (and Drs' adventures) in a understandable and interesting way. It's probably more easily understood if you're famliar with the aliens, planets and technologies of the programme; but those who have only watched one or two episodes will still get something from this book. The text can be approached successfully from either a TV or scientific interest.
