The Quotable Doctor Who
The TARDIS of Quotations Books
A Cosmic and Comic Collection of 2000 Biographical Quotations about The Doctor. Compiled & Edited by Colin M Jarman & Catherine A Davies.
Published on 7th December, 2010.
"I love this show as much as ever. It has not diminished as I feared it would. I can still catch a Jon Pertwee repeat on UK Gold and be happy as a Zygon."
Russell T. Davies in The Guardian (2005)
The Quotable Doctor Who Series delivers the first-ever, comprehensive collection of quotations about Doctor Who - the show and the character … in the words of those involved with the production, as well as considerable contributions from critics and fans, and more …
"The cliché about Doctor Who - that it had us 'hiding behind the sofa' - is more telling in its tone than its questionable factuality. It connotes nostalgia, and a pleasurable mixture of fright and fascination - above all it connotes domesticity. It united fear and soft furnishings in the British mind."
Sam Leith in The Daily Telegraph (2008)
The Quotable Doctor Who - Volume One contains 2000 interesting quotations and insightful comments about the TV show from the first black and white episode in 1963 to the HD wonders of 2010. This publication from Blue Eyed Books covers all eleven TV incarnations of the Doctor - both character and actor - William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee, Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, Paul McGann, Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant, Matt Smith as well as other Film & TV Doctors - Peter Cushing & William Hurndall.
This deeply-researched and well-presented compendium also includes observations and opinions about all The Doctor's companions (from Susan Foreman to Amy Pond).
On The Doctors getting younger - "What is odd is that the companions have remained pretty much the same nubile, up-for-it age. They began as children out with a cranky magical uncle of a sort that was common in Edwardian children’s books, but have now ended up with an inter-galactic blind date."
A.A. Gill in The Sunday Times (2010)
There are special sections on The Doctor's 'accessories' from the TARDIS to his Sonic Screwdriver; along with the three Doctor Who movies & TV spin-offs such as Torchwood & The Sarah Jane Adventures. There are also specially chosen comments from other TV shows, movies and even quotations comparing The Doctor to other fictional characters.
"The TARDIS may have been impressively roomy but it would still only be a changing room for Superman."
Steve Tomkins in Third Way (2006)

About the Authors
In a 'Time And Relative-Duality Interrelated Symbiosis' the co-authors of The Quotable Doctor Who coincidentally correlate with the original 1963 Doctor Who 'pairing'. Where William Hartnell (early 50s) and Carol Ann Ford (early 20s) played grandfather & grand-daughter, Colin & Catherine (uncle & niece) fit the same age group as their predecessors.
Colin M Jarman
With 30 books published since 1990, Colin has already penned 'biographies' on popular cultural icons James Bond, Roy of the Rovers, Fred Astaire and Judge Dredd. He fondly remembers the earliest 1960s incarnations of The Doctor from Hartnell to Pertwee as being iconic TV moments that ranked up there with the 1966 World Cup Final and the 1969 Moon landing. Unsurprisingly, Colin has focused on the Classic Who series …
Catherine A Davies
No relation to Who writer / producer Russell T. Davies, Catherine did, however, start her Doctor Who journey with RTD's New Series in 2005. After finding The Adipose cute and The Weeping Angels terrifying she can't wait to see what new adventures Matt and Amy get up to in 2011 and beyond.
