The Doctor: His Lives and Times (also released as The Doctor's Lives and Times in North America) was a reference book by James Goss and Steve Tribe. Covering each Doctor from the First Doctor to the Eleventh Doctor, it alternated between fictional segments - which gave an overview of each Doctor's televised adventures in the form of various records, letters, journals and tabloids - followed by a reference chapter consisting of insights and commentary from cast, crew and others related to the production of Doctor Who. It contained fictional elements contributed by 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[]

"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.
