New Doctor Who Book From Matthew J Elliott Now Available for Purchase

Hasslein Publishing, LLC, is proud to announce the release of Lost in Time and Space: An Unofficial Guide to the Uncharted Journeysof Doctor Who, written by Matthew J Elliott. Lost in Time and Space—the first of Hasslein's two Doctor Who reference guides, to be followed by Who After 50: CelebratingFive Decades of Doctor Who, by Brian J Robb and Paul Simpson—is now available for purchase at Amazon.com and CreateSpace.com, and will soon also be available to consumers at BarnesandNoble.com, and to resellers via Ingram, NACSCORP and CreateSpace Direct Resellers.

BBC's immensely popular Doctor Who series, featuring an extraterrestrial Time Lord exploring the universe aboard a time machine resembling a police call box, is a significant part of British pop-culture and a cult favorite worldwide. The series has changed radically over the years, with thirteen actors portraying the Doctor to date, and with more than 50 companions joining him on his adventures.

But the show's 800 televised episodes (so far) are just the tip of the iceberg, as the Doctor has referenced countless encounters never expanded upon onscreen. After five decades of time-traveling adventures, you might imagine you knew all there was to know about the greatest hero in all of time and space, but it turns out he was living another life entirely while we weren't looking. This is the story of that life.

RiffTrax.com writer Matthew J Elliott, the author of Sherlock Holmes on the Air, Sherlock Holmes in Pursuit, The Immortals: An Unauthorized Guide to Sherlock and Elementary and The Throne Eternal, as well as numerous radio plays based on Sherlock Holmes, The Twilight Zone, Vincent Price Presents, Logan's Run, Perry Mason and The War of the Worlds, has accepted the Herculean task of chronicling those "stories between the stories." This is not a typical Doctor Who project—but, then, Matthew is not a typical Doctor Who fan.

Lost in Time and Space, a softcover volume spanning 350 pages, is now available for only $19.99. Beautifully designed, the book features an insightful foreword by Alan Barnes, the author of the animated Tenth Doctor adventure The Infinite Quest, and a writer and editor for Big Finish Productions' audio dramas featuring five of the Doctor's earlier incarnations.
