David J Howe, Mark Stammers and Stephen James Walker have made a huge contribution to documenting the production history and critical reception of Doctor Who.

David, Mark and Stephen began writing Doctor Who reference books for Virgin Publishing with The Sixties (1992), The Seventies (1994), The Eighties (1996) and The Handbook series (1992-97). David also wrote Timeframe (1993), Companions (1995, with Mark Stammers) and I am the Doctor (1996, with Jon Pertwee). For BBC Books, David wrote A Book of Monsters (1997) and collaborated with Stephen on The Television Companion (1998). David and Stephen then established their own company, Telos Publishing (, and continue to publish Doctor Who reference books to this day. David has written Howe’s Transcendental Toybox (2000, with Arnold T Blumberg) and The Target Book (2007, with Tim Neal). Stephen compiled the three-volume interview collection Talkback (2006-07) and to date has written six guide books to recent Doctor Who series, from Third Dimension (2007) to Time of the Doctor (2016).

About Doctor Who Magazine

The latest Special Edition of Doctor Who Magazine is devoted to the many non-fiction books based on the series. This comprehensive guide traces the history of the series’ reference works, from the very first episode guides compiled by Doctor Who story editors for their colleagues in the 1960s, to the fanzines of the 1970s, the first authorised books based on the series and the plethora of books available today. Exclusive interviews, behind-the- scenes features and numerous rare photographs tell the whole story, from the black-and-white days of Doctor Who to the 2017 series starring Peter Capaldi.
