Doctor Who: The Vault - Treasures from the First 50 Years - Hardback and Digital Download

This very special book celebrating 50 years of Doctor Who is now available both in physical hardback and for digital download on Mac and iOS devices. From what I've seen of the book it does look rather lovely. I think I'll have to invest at some point! You can order from the BBC Shop via the ad link on the right.

Retail: £29.99
Digital: £14.99

The Vault is an unforgettable journey through 50 years of Doctor Who, via carefully selected photos, props, costume designs, memos, letters, script pages and more. Select and enlarge any image, and delve deeper into a number of products featured in its pages: sample chapters from books, pages from the first issue of Doctor Who Magazine, and clips from audio releases THE DEAD SHOES, THE PESCATONS and GENESIS OF THE DALEKS.

This is the full and official story of Doctor Who, from the first pre-production memos in 1963 to the most recent props created for the 2013 series, including interviews with key contributors and scores of prop photos, design sketches and behind the scenes stills from every decade of the show’s production. Taking you year by year through the world’s longest running science fiction series, Marcus Hearn explores the show’s groundbreaking innovations as well as its impact on popular culture through books and comics, magazines and toys, merchandise and ephemera.
