Panini’s acclaimed bookazine series The Essential Doctor Who continues, with a lavish 116-page issue about the Doctor’s journeys into Earth’s past.

Adventures in History includes interviews with:

    Artist Jeff Cummins (Doctor Who Discovers)
Story editor Gerry Davis (The Highlanders)
Actor Bernard Kay (The Crusade)
Costume designer Odile Dicks-Mireaux (The Visitation)
Writer John Lucarotti (The Aztecs)
Writer Jamie Mathieson (The Girl Who Died)
Actor Ian McNeice (Victory of the Daleks)
Director Saul Metzstein (Dinosaurs on a Spaceship)
Writer Marc Platt (Ghost Light)
Story editor Donald Tosh (The Massacre of St Bartholomew’s Eve)
Artist George Underwood (The Doctor Who Dinosaur Book)
Actress Anneke Wills, who played Polly in The Smugglers and numerous other stories.

Elsewhere in this packed issue, Andrew Pixley reveals Donald Cotton’s notes for the 1965 story The Myth Makers, timelines chart the Doctor’s adventures from the creation of the Earth through to 1963, and 15 trips into history are revisited, from the era of the First Doctor right through to that of the Twelfth.

Editor Marcus Hearn says:
History in Doctor Who is about much more than the purely historical stories that were made in the 1960s. We decided to follow the Doctor’s entire journey through Earth history, with some of our best writers and designer Peri Godbold as our guides. We’ve never done anything quite like this before, and some of the rare pictures we’ve uncovered are amazing.

The Essential Doctor Who: Adventures in History is on sale now at WHSmith and all good newsagents.

US may have a time lag.
