A revised version of the book Fifty Years in Time and Space: A Short History of Doctor Who is now available at a special price for readers of Doctor Who News.

Complete with a new cover, from Doctor Who Magazine illustrator Roger Langridge, the book has been updated following its initial publication last year. Written by Frank Danes, Head of English at The King's School, Ely, in Cambridgeshire, the book tells the story of Doctor Who from 1963 to 2013, covering the action on screen and behind the scenes.

The initial edition was well recieved and reviewed in many papers including The Southland Times of New Zealand who said
If there was such a thing as a time traveller's check list, Frank Danes would tick every box with his Short History of Doctor Who. He knows what is good, what is bad and what is ugly and he's not afraid to talk about these things. Danes' book is... for anyone who wants to understand its history, whether they have been with the show since Hartnell or joined it at any point in its half century.

The book retails at £11.95, but United Kingdom readers of Doctor Who News can order a signed copy for just £8.25 including postage. Overseas readers can order the book for £15 including postage.

Orders should be sent to the publisher at, please mention you saw the item on Doctor Who News to apply the special offer.
