Lost in Time and Space: An Unofficial Guide to the Uncharted Journeys of Doctor Who
 

Authored by Matthew J Elliott

Preface by Alan Barnes
Edited by Rich Handley

BBC’s immensely popular Doctor Who series is a significant part of British pop culture and a cult favorite worldwide; the televised episodes, however, are just the tip of the iceberg, as the Doctor has referenced countless encounters never expanded upon onscreen. RiffTrax.com writer Matthew J Elliott has accepted the Herculean task of chronicling those “stories between the stories” in Lost in Time and Space: An Unofficial Guide to the Uncharted Journeys of Doctor Who.

Every character the Doctor met off-screen, every place he visited between episodes, and every event he witnessed while the cameras were turned off are meticulously mapped out on a timeline spanning the entire 50 years of Doctor Who, from long before the Doctor “borrowed” the TARDIS until the last days of his eleventh incarnation. This is not a typical Doctor Who project--but, then, Matthew is not a typical Doctor Who fan.

After five decades of time-traveling adventures, you might imagine you knew all there was to know about the greatest hero in all of time and space, but it turns out he was living another life entirely while we weren't looking. This is the story of that life.

Lost in Time and Space, a softcover volume spanning 350 pages, features an insightful foreword by Alan Barnes, the author of the animated Tenth Doctor adventure The Infinite Quest, and a writer and editor for Big Finish Productions' audio dramas featuring five of the Doctor’s earlier incarnations.
