The perfect Doctor Who book for every TARDIS enthusiast

By Christel Dee

Governed by Time Lord technology, the TARDIS Type 40 is the most powerful craft in the universe and this comprehensive fully-illustrated manual holds the key to its operation.

The appearance of the Doctor's TARDIS, both inside and out, has changed many times over the years, and this manual features every incarnation – including the latest version for the Thirteenth Doctor.


The manual covers the console with fully-labelled detailed schematic diagrams for each function and the ship’s famous chameleon circuit, as well as floorplans, specifics of dematerialisation, the use of force fields and tractor beams and much more.

Complete with case studies of the wonder-craft in action, taken from the TARDIS’s many trips through space and time, this manual is an essential guide to the wonders of the Whoniverse.
