The Brilliant Book is Really… Brilliant!
Don’t worry about those heavy, weighty tomes sat on your bookshelf looking smarter than you – if there’s one book anyone should tell Dostoyevsky to do one with its Doctor Who: The Brilliant Book 2012 , the kind of children’s annual that’ll be readily stolen by adults across the land.
For a start Dostoyevsky didn’t have glossy pictures (although the pop up The Brothers Karamazov is a hoot), behind the scenes interviews with both the acting talent – take a bow: Matt Smith, Arthur Darvill, Karen Gillan and Alex Kingston – and some of the most talented TV writers working today: Mark Gatiss, Gareth Roberts, Matthew Graham, Tom Macrae, et al… but also some very interesting teases from the head honcho himself The Grand Moff.
Not only that, it also promises to shed new light on Series 6 with a bevy of deleted scenes, full episode by episode guides and some hidden gems that may have eluded you the first time round.
On top of all that there’s exclusive content such as the tale of the legendary Corsair, the voyage of the good ship Fancy before it was ensnared by Siren song, the worthy tale of Ganger rights and the further adventures of Sapphic Silurian Madame Vastra.
