In 100 pages?!
It must be bigger on the inside!

After a nine-year absence, 2005 marked the return of Doctor Who, bigger and better than ever before. Under the guidance of Russell T Davies, it's moved from being a fondly-remembered piece of kitsch to a vital, ratings-grabbing part of the BBC's schedule. We take an in-depth look at the past, present and future of the galaxy's best-loved Time Lord
