Although not an official BBC tie-in, the book nevertheless makes for an out-of-this-world read for both Classic and New Who fans. -- Library Journal Easy to dip in and out of, but at the same time is so compelling that you won't want to put it down until you've finished the final page. But most of all it's fun, witty, and thoroughly charming. Just like the Doctor. -- Doctor Who Magazine Two whole-hearted Whovians wrote The Doctors Are In -- an examination of each of the twelve Doctors (and a Warrior) to date. The writing is smooth and balances nicely between scholarly and chums chatting. -- EclipseMagazine.com These two always find new points of interest on even the most well-worn paths. Of great interest to any Doctor Who fan, and entirely suitable for a beginner, too. That's a neat trick, and this book pulls it off with aplomb.

I devoured the chapters. -- Comics Worth Reading If you're open to hearing criticism about your favorite Doctors and episodes, and even mentally debating with the authors, give this a read. -- Tessa's Books and Tea Room The authors' refusal to veer away from controversy and championing the golden moments that exist in even the worst of stories makes The Doctors Are In more interesting and compelling than other Doctor Who books that toe the line or play it safe. -- Sci-fi Bulletin This is a fun book that is pure fan love. . . If you're a fan (or even if you're a newbie like me) this is a book you would really enjoy. -- Smart Girls Read blog
