Book review: Doctor Who FAQ is where opinions, like bow ties, are cool

Doctor Who FAQ

For many people, Doctor Who is a fantastic sci-fi show that has formed a firm grip on the young adults of the world. The truth of how this decades-old show came to be a global phenomenon and the ability to see what it has gained and lost along the way are missed by much of the current audience. If you’re interested in a peek into what Doctor Who has meant to the world since its inception and you’re looking for a fun way to learn more about this beloved show, the Doctor Who FAQ is a great place to start.

Much in the same way that it’s impossible to contain all there is to know about Star Trek in a single book, the vast wealth of knowledge surrounding Doctor Who is nearly immeasurable. Doctor Who existed before the age of television, and continued during a time where it was so difficult to record a broadcasted show that several episodes were lost forever. There’s not been another entertainment experience quite like Doctor Who, and the unique experience created by following the clever time traveler known only as The Doctor is something that could theoretically go one forever. Doctor Who FAQ: All That’s Left to Know About the Most Famous Time Lord in the Universe does a great job offering a view at the show as it has existed from the beginning, as well as the struggles both on and off screen that have shaped something so many people tune in every week to watch.

As the author of a book about Doctor Who, whose goal is to offer insights that would encourage a fan of the show to savor every word, Dave Thompson is not afraid to express a fair bit of opinion in his presentation of interesting facts about the show. Thompson spends some time in the beginning of the Doctor Who FAQ explaining why the show is missing some early episodes, and why it took so long to catch on in the US. If you’ve ever wondered why it is most of the American audience is only really familiar with Tom Baker in the old series or has only ever seen the new series, the beginning of this book is a great read.

From there, Thompson takes you on a Doctor-by-Doctor ride though the series, thoroughly describing the strengths and weaknesses of both the actors that played The Doctor and the rotating carousel of cast members that have played the role of Companion throughout the years.

Doctor Who FAQ

If you’re a big fan of the current series, specifically the recent work of writer/producer Steve Moffat, be prepared for some thoroughly explained distaste for the show as it exists now. Thompson goes into great detail to explain how the show has grown less cerebral over the years, going from something rich in semi-factual representations of historical events to a straight up sci-fi fantasy that involves World War II Spitfires attacking an alien craft in the cold vacuum of space. Thompson laments the intentional weakening of enemies throughout the show, like the Cybermen who were recently defeated by the emotions of a father trying to save his son. While Thompson is critical of Moffat in many places, the book also spends a considerable amount of time appreciating it for what it has become, even if storytelling has occasionally suffered.

The Doctor Who FAQ is a 400 page highly opinionated view of a show that has quite literally traveled through time, bringing entire generations of people together to enjoy the tales of a character that has managed to appear ever younger while aging by hundreds of years throughout the history of the show. If you’re a fan of any part of the series, this book is a great addition to your shelf.

Munitio’s New SV Earphones: Precision Sound, Luxurious Style

Siva's Reviews: Munitio SV

“To hear a full frequency of a recording, you don’t even have to turn it up loud!”

-Kool Kojak, multi-platinum songwriter who produced Ke$ha, Nicki Minaj, Flo Rida, Katy Perry

Recently, I had the opportunity to connect with the team at Munitio, a precision sound brand specializing in lifestyle electronic accessories. Pronounced “Muni-she-yo,” as in the Latin word for fortification and defense, Munitio audio gear embodies strength, authenticity, and style. Before this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, I must admit, I wasn’t familiar with this small San Diego-based company. Now that I am, I am excited to tell you more about it and share my review of one of its flagship products, the new SV earphones.

Siva's Reviews: Munitio SV

The Munitio SV earphones are one of the most balanced pairs of earphones I’ve had the pleasure of trying out. To say I was very impressed with their exquisite, crystalline sound delivery would be an understatement. Listening to music through the SVs was a surreal experience. The complexity and clearly delineated layers of acoustics the SVs pumped out would impress even the most discerning audiophile.

The SVs captured my attention on so many levels. On the one hand, it was easy to get lost in the pristine sound quality of whatever I happened to be listening to; On the other hand, I found myself in auditory awe at all of the details and nuances I was able to hear using these precision earphones. In some instances, songs I’m very familiar with  felt like I had never heard songs, which in actuality, I was very familiar with.

Siva's Reviews: Munitio SV

“More consumers are realizing it’s better to have headphones that sound good based on personal listening tastes, rather than just buying what everyone else has,” said MUNITIO co-founder Danny Massaro. “Appearance is obviously important too, so we’ve created headphones with unique style and sound identities that appeal to certain lifestyles and listening preferences and allow people to hear their music like never before.”

Their latest addition to an already stellar line up continues in the tradition of excellence! Regarding the SVs, MUNITIO co-founder, Danny Massaro had this to say, “Acoustically, each MUNITIO product is designed with its own unique sound identity that appeals to an individual’s personal listening preference.  For instance, the SV is defined by an ultra-smooth frequency response curve through the mids and highs, exceptional vocal clarity and fast, accurate crossover transitions between instrumentals. Stylistically, MUNITIO products take their cues from a variety of different sources, but always with studio-grade performance, rugged industrial design and tactical functionality at the core. Some of the SVs design heritage comes from the world of high performance racing. You can see that reflected with the flat, tangle-free ribbon cable and the slotted bass port and curves of the aluminum housing earpiece.”

Siva's Reviews: Munitio SV

With so many great headphones and earphones out there to choose from, it can be a true challenge for any one company to break away from the pack and gain recognition. Add to that, that I am particularly critical of headphones and speakers and weigh my words carefully when offering my reviews of audio equipment, being raised the son of an audiophile myself. With the SVs, the detail-oriented team of professionals at Munitio have succeeded in not only impressing me, but also in taking high-end audio engineering to a whole new level.

Siva's Reviews: Munitio SV

Munitio Billets

The Munitio SVs may be some of the pricier earphones the company has to offer, but if $130.00 isn’t in your budget, do yourself a favor and check out their high quality Billets that will only cost you $70.00 and I’d say that even these lower priced models perform better than 75% of the earphones on the market today. On the other hand, if you are looking for some of the best earphones money can buy, be sure to take a gander at Munitio’s Nines ($170.00), which are their top of the line, premium sonic experience earphones.
