The Doctor Who Technical Manual originally came out in the early 1980s, clearly covering events up through the early part of Peter Davison's tenure as the Fifth Doctor. It is fully of diagrams, background materials, and has a number of good quality color photos from various events of the Third and Fourth Doctor's times. The blue prints leave off some dimensions, but it does provide a scale (centimeters). So it can be used for construction. Otherwise, the book is a nice piece of Doctor Who memorabilia.

This is better as a collectible than an a resource for building replica props. Nonetheless, it's a great starting point that is well supplemented by a few online resources for more accurate plans.

I could tell the book was not new, but wear and tear on the book was minimal, and it was more than worth the purchase price.

I'd definitely do business with this seller again.

I had this as a kid and was stoked to find another one on here. Simple but fun for an old time Dr Who fan!

Yeah, if you're a fan of science fiction, and / or a Whovian, this is for you. You NEED this book.

I purchased the book to help build a TARDIS of my own. It will help, but it could have been more intuitive. The blue prints leave off some dimensions, but it does provide a scale (centimeters). So it can be used for construction. Otherwise, the book is a nice piece of Doctor Who memorabilia.

This is a pretty handy book in regards to some details on some of the major technologies shown in the Dr. Who series up to about the mid-80's. You get some great detail on items like the TARDIS, Daleks, and even a comprehensive bio of the Doctor himself. However much of the information featured on the book doesn't give you much more than dimensions and if you're lucky some detail on the diagram.

For the stuff they are comprehensive on you get a good amount of historic information as well as some technical. The history of the Time Lords is pretty well rounded for two pages of text, as is the history of the Doctor. K9 gets some exposure too, but it's hardly anything more than you would already know if you have been watching Tom Baker's Who anyway.

If you want to know about Daleks this book cover a lot. Not only the history and capabilities of the Daleks, but also illustrations of all the major Dalek models to the date of printing (including the Dalek Emperor). This includes a simple, yet effective illustration of what's inside a Dalek as well. There is also a healthy entry for the Dalek nemesis race the Movellans.

The Cybermen get a sizeable piece of the manual but all you really get is their history and illustrations of all the iterations of the Cybermen from the beginning up to the ones from the 80's (Tom Baker era). While it would be nice to get more info than what was provided (inner workings, weapons, ships they used, etc) on them I did like what they had.

Of course the main attraction is the TARDIS and you get some good detail on it in this book from the history, details on the Doctor's, basic control panel descriptions, capabilities, and more. You even get a silly cut out exercise in the back section of the book on how to make your own paper TARDIS.

Another interesting tibit you get in the book is the Doctor's tools, including the sonic screwdriver. Unfortunately you only get a brief description of that handy tool. They do mention all of the other tools in the TARDIS tool kit, but you get no description on their use.

Some things that are in the book like space ships give you nothing more than just a simple blueprint-styled illustrations with dimensions. On the offset you can glean some information like where the radar is placed, but that info is sparse at best.

All in all the Doctor Who Technical Manual is a mixed bag. In some instances you get some great information. Other you get hardly nothing at all. It's a rather thin paperback so don't expect a world of information. From what I can tell all the information on the book is indeed canon (for example the book refers to being an official guide and gives credit to scrip writers for resources). If it's just the basics you are looking for then this is a good start.

This book gives you details and measurements for all Dr Who related objects like the Sonic Screwdriver, the TARDIS and its console. Also detailed layouts, history and measurements of Davros and his DALEKS, all makes and models of the Cybermen, The Giant Robot, K-9 and spaceships featured in the show. There is also a colour photo section showing some of the creatures featured in the manual. Many people have claimed to have built their own TARDIS's and consoles based on the information given in this manual. RECOMMENDED to the fans with a technical mind.
The Doctor Who Technical Manual is one of those fictional encyclopedia type of publications, giving details of an array of aliens and machines, including Cybermen, K-9 and others from the show.

Also Daleks and the Sonic Screwdriver, of course. You couldn't do a book like this and not have some Sonic Screwdriver details without a lot of protests.

There are also blueprints to build your own TARDIS model for a bit of variety.
