Doctor Who: The Brilliant Book 2012 (which is, for want of a better word, brilliant) had its book signing on 30th November at Forbidden Planet and on hand were Gary Russell (author of Doctor Who The Encyclopedia) and Steven Moffat (if that name has to be explained to you then what are you doing here?!) to answer a few questions for the cameras.
Mr Moffat talks briefly (and apparently as if he’s had 40 cups of coffee all at once) about what the book contains this year, why it’s important as a companion piece for fans of the show and who he would want to travel through time and space with if he could, of which the answer is quite sweet! The show runner also talks very, very briefly regarding the 2011 Christmas special and the series that will follow it.
Meanwhile Mr Russell talks about his updated version of the Doctor Who The Encyclopedia (and a very odd idea of a way that you could make use of it!) and what the book will hopefully include in the future. The Doctor Who stalwart also talks about “his” Doctor and just what makes the character so important and so enduring.
Doctor Who: The Brilliant Book 2012 and Doctor Who The Encyclopedia are available to buy now from all good retailers but you may want to have a look at Forbidden Planet’s website as they have plenty of other goodies for you to drool over as well!
