Doctor Who: William HartnellA booklet looking into the early life and Ancestoral History of the First Doctor, William Hartnell has been created by Stephen Bray.

The 31 page booklet, WHO Do You Think You Are? - A Genealogical Enquiry Into the Ancestry of William Hartnell, TV's First Doctor Who digs into the most cobwebbed of corners illuminating Hartnell's earliest years and those of his ancestors, going right back to the 1500s. There's a few surprises and a couple of scandals throughout the journey!

The booklet is fully illustrated throughout with maps, contemporaneous photographs and genealogical charts.

The author is offering privately printed copies from the auction site Ebay.
