    1. Although it has some shortcomings -- typographical errors, as well as a few references that are quite wrong (like naming the Weeping Angels as the Blinking Angels every time they are referred to) -- Cabell's biography on each of the eleven-plus Time Lords captures the essence of all of the actors who have worn the mantle, scarf, coat, or fez of the Doctor. Not only does he include densely packed mini-bios on all of them from Hartnell to Smith, but also those who played the Doctor in another medi [...]

    2. This could have been a really good book. Unfortunately, between its typos and its odd writing style, it was a chore to get through. Only my desire to learn more about the actors who have played the Doctor made me stick with it to the very end. The last section, the author's essay on his top 25 episodes, made the struggle worthwhile. I would recommend the book only to very devoted Doctor Who fans and to those who simply must own everything written about the show. As a side note: perhaps intrepid [...]

    3. I expected this to be sort of silly but fun, I didn't expect a collection of short biographies of these actors to be intellectually stimulating or emotionally moving but I did think it would be, you know, fun, and bring up warm childhood memories of Doctor Who. This book couldn't even achieve that modest goal, at least not with any consistency. Another expectation I had was that the book would contain information that wouldn't otherwise be readily available on the Internet. It seems to me that C [...]

    4. Ich mag die TV-Serie, die mich als Fan mit Christopher Ecclestone gewonnen hat. Seitdem sind ein paar Jahre vergangen und ich habe von den Classicfolgen ebenfalls einige, aber bei weitem nicht alle, gesehen. Aber ich kenne Folgen aller den Doctor in der Serie verkörpernder Schauspieler und den Film mit Paul McGann. Dieses Buch sollte mir etwas mehr über die Schauspieler vermitteln. Das Buch liefert einen Einblick in die Biographien und Karrieren von William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton, Jon Per [...]

    5. I tre quarti del libro sono una carrellata di informazioni biografiche riguardanti gli undici attori canonici della serie e i vari interpreti collaterali, partendo da Peter Cushing (interprete dei due film usciti negli anni 60), passando per Richard Hurndall (interprete del Primo Dottore nello speciale dei primi vent'anni della serie) fino ad arrrivare a quelli che hanno portato il Dottore sul palcoscenico.Le notizie non sono originali, molti fatti si trovano nelle varie biografie ufficiali o ne [...]

    6. A good guide to the actors behind the iconic character, The Doctors: Who's Who offers short biographies of each of the eleven (to date) actors, as well as a brief examination of both their time as the Doctor and the work they did before taking the role and after leaving it. There's also a chapter on Peter Cushing, who played the Doctor in two movies, and another chapter focused on those who portrayed the Doctor on stage. (Did you know there were stage plays? I didn't.) Overall, it's a decent rea [...]

    7. As a lifelong fan of Dr Who who has seen every incarnation of the good Doctor, this was a must read.Forget the odd typo, on the whole a good addition to the Who legend.I certainly enjoyed reading about the actors who played Who.What happened to them after, how did they get the part etc.There is a rich history for each actor and some little known facts yet somehow they almost all interlinkedWith each other before and after the Doctor.Worth a read to a die hard fan of the wandering Timelord.

    8. As an aspiring actress and wanna-be companion, I really enjoyed reading about the acting lives of each of the men who have played the Doctor. Much fangirling went on! However, it annoyed me no end the the Author continually called him 'Doctor Who'. His name is not 'Doctor Who', it's 'the Doctor'. Also, he called the Weeping Angels the Blinking Angels, which is possibly the most annoying thing ever. If you're going to write a book about Doctor Who, please get the names of the aliens right. :?Othe [...]

    9. This is about the twelve plus actors who played the Doctor, what parts they had before taking on The Doctor and what roles they played after taking their turn at the TARDIS. For instance: both Tom Baker #4 and Christopher Eccleston #9 had worked in construction between acting jobs, but Tom Baker went from the construction site directly to BBC offices to be offered The Doctor. The copy I read called the big baddy Weeping Angels, but called the Doctor's vehicle a Tardis, instead of TARDIS.

    10. This was a good book. The author explains what it takes to be The Doctor. Tells about each one of the actors time as the Doctor,what the did before that.The villains and companions much more. A must for anyone who is a Who fan or someone just wondering about "who" is this Doctor. Takes you from: November 1963 ep.'An Unearthly Child', William Hartnell as The Doctor. To today : July 2015, with Peter Capaldi as The Doctor.

    11. This is a good place to start if you are wanting to learn about the history of "Doctor Who." The author basically puts into sentences what can be found on . It's not the best written book, nor is it the worst. But, you can tell his genuine enjoyment of the Doctor so it makes for an enjoyable read.

    12. Well, this was better than Craig Cabell's book on Mr Pratchett. Just about. Mainly because this covers 12 Doctors (plus a couple of others) and so you don't expect it to go into great depth. But it's really just a list of previous acting jobs and comments on their work after these actors have played the Doctor.It was ok, with a bit of Doctor Who background, but nothing special.

    13. The author seemed to ramble a bit…repetitive at times too. I would've made each of the author's segments more brief and included the lists of their accomplishments on stage and screen in with their individual chapters instead of at the back of the book. Some good inside information and insight into the actors as well as the show! Glad I read it.

    16. The writing wasn't that good, but I enjoyed the essay at the end of the book. And it was fun to learn more about the actors that have played the Doctor.
