BBC Books announces Doctor Who: The Time-Travelling Almanac, a guide that covers a year from the Doctor’s perspective with useful tips and information provided by the Doctor and friends – and occasionally their enemies.

“The ground beneath our feet is spinning at a thousand miles an hour and the entire planet is hurtling round the sun at 67,000 miles an hour, and I can feel it.” — The Doctor

We’re all travellers in time and space. Right now, you’re riding a planet as it makes its latest circuit of the Sun. For millennia, humans have used this regular journey round and round to mark time and our place in the universe.

Billed as the essential companion on the Doctor’s year, the almanac contains useful and fun tips and information to guide and illuminate the yearly voyage. Month by month, fans can spot constellations, identify shooting stars and mark daily Doctor Who debuts, birthdays and anniversaries.

Plus fans will learn how to feel the turn of the Earth underfoot (hurtling round the sun at 67,000 miles an hour), how are ‘July’ and ‘August’ related to days being erased from existence ― more than once, the times each day that Sea Devil attacks are most likely (depending on the tides), how to avoid disturbing dangerous faeries (distances measured in yards), and why, despite all the invasions and Goblins, Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year.

Doctor Who: The Time-Travelling Almanac (hardback) is available for pre-order for a 3 October 2024 release.
