The Doctor Sourcebooks

To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who, we are releasing a series of Doctor Sourcebooks for the Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space roleplaying game.

Each book takes an in-depth look at an incarnation of the Doctor, featuring his companions, enemies, allies, gadgets and more. We present each of his adventures, giving an overview of the action and themes, exploring how you can use them in your games. We also give you suggestions for further adventures based on the events depicted.

As well as being packed with information for use in your games, the books are full of images from that Doctor’s incarnation, and are a wonderful fan resource for the show’s history. We’ve even kept the first two in black and white to stay true to the feel of the show!

The books are US letter-size (standard RPG size, 8.5”x11”) and 160 pages long (in some cases, like the Fourth Doctor even longer!) with a hard cover. The First and Second Doctor Sourcebooks feature full colour covers and period-appropriate black and white interior; all the others are full colour throughout. We have commissioned a montage of the eleven Doctors, which will run across the spines of the Sourcebooks when they are on the shelf:

Betrayed by the Master and left to die, the Doctor faced his most difficult regeneration yet – but it’d be nothing compared to the heartbreak, betrayal and loss that was to come. Fly Concorde through time, re-enact the English civil war, play in a ripping game of cricket and race yachts around the Solar System for the greatest prize of all. Witness the return of some of the universe’s greatest foes, restored and deadlier than ever, and thwart their machinations once more … but at a cost.

Brave heart, my friends…
