The Doctor: His Lives and Times was a reference book by James Goss and Steve Tribe. Covering each Doctor from the First Doctor to the Eleventh Doctor, it alternated between prose short stories giving an overview of each Doctor's televised adventures, followed by a reference chapter consisting of insights and commentary from cast, crew and others related to the production of Doctor Who. It also had short story contributions from Andrew Smith, Marc Platt, Russell T Davies, Paul Cornell, and Neil Gaiman.

The artwork for Doctor Who and the Time War was also to be included, before it was removed due to the production of The Night of the Doctor.[1]

Publisher's summary Edit

"I'm the Doctor. I'm a Time Lord. I'm from the planet Gallifrey in the constellation of Kasterborous. And I'm the man who's going to save your life."

He's made a mark on almost every era of history, and he's touched millions of lives across space and time. In these pages you'll find just some of the stories behind those brief encounters, each of them addressing the question that must never, ever be answered: 'Doctor Who?'

This is the story of an impossible life — of a man who borrowed a spaceship, travelled through time and continually saved the universe — as told by the Doctor's friends, by his enemies, and by the man himself. Letters, journals, trial records, secret government files and the occasional bit of tabloid journalism reveal the never-before-told story of Gallifrey's last Time Lord.
