Cover blurb[]



  • An alphabetical compilation of characters and monsters from Tom Baker's long stint as the fourth Doctor.
  • Should win some sort of award for its eye-wateringly amateurish cover — not only does it look like a Powerpoint slide designed by a 5 year old... the same 5 year old clearly can't spell "Encyclopedia"!
  • The "review quotes" on the cover from Fantasy Empire and Couch Potato are also a little suspect, as both of these were magazines owned by publisher (and editor of this book) Hal Schuster — and as far as I can tell, neither magazine was still in existence around the time this book was published!
  • And as the cherry on the cake, the ISBN is listed on the cover is 1 55698 160 0, however that ISBN seems to be shared by the similar Schuster-published Encylopedia of Star Trek.
