The reason that this blog has been so deathly quiet of late is that I just haven't done anything hobbywise worth writing about. However, as I said last week, I wouldn't be me if I stopped buying books. So here we go with that old stalwart "books I've picked up in charity shops".
These I picked up a few months ago. I thought I'd already posted about them, but apparently not.
The Torchwood Encyclopedia is nothing special, but has plenty of basic reference on the series. I was very pleased to get the '80s book though - looking on-line and in more specialist shops, I found that the series goes for silly prices. That's a shame because (as regular readers of 'Doctor Who Wednesday' will realise) I'd rather have the volumes on the '60s and '70s. I despaired of ever seeing them at reasonable prices.
So imagine how pleased I was to find this in the same charity shop last week!
In addition, I picked up these specials "from the publishers of Doctor Who Magazine". Anything that has Roger Deladgo or the Brigadier on the cover is for me! And they're full of good background stuff.
This one focuses on the first two series of the New Series. In addition to episode guides, there's plenty of background in these too, including some nice concept art...
