New Doctor Who Book - Companions: Fifty Years of Doctor Who Assistants

Available to pre-order now is a new unofficial guide to all of the the Time Lord's fellow travellers from the last fifty years. 

Companions: Fifty Years of Doctor Who Assistants was written by life-long  Doctor Who fan and Big Finish story writer Andy Frankham-Allen. It provides readers with an in-depth account of each Doctor's assistants, sourced from plots of the TV series as well as other media, and promises fascinating reading for fans of both the classic and current series of Doctor Who.

Andy said about the book, “It’s been a long time since there’s been an honest and frank look at the Doctor’s journey and the lives he changes. This book will challenge the notion that he always takes the best.”

The book also includes a foreword written by Big Finish producer and Doctor Who novelist Gary Russell, who said: “Of course there have been books about companions before – but few of them go into this amount of detail, display this amount of in-depth knowledge and above all, this amount of love. As a celebration of everything that makes the Doctor’s (and therefore our) best friends unique and special, this book is essential.”

Companions: Fifty Years of Doctor Who Assistants will be released on 27th June by Candy Jar Books. Signed copies of the book are now available to pre-order from the Candy Jar Books website priced at £8.99 plus p+p.Candy Jar books will ship worldwide.
