TCH 42 was a reference book published by Hachette Partworks and Panini UK in 2017. It was the fiftieth issue of The Complete History, and covered Doctor Who's 23rd season, also referred to as The Trial of a Time Lord.
Doctor Who: The Complete History was a fortnightly series of partworks published in hardback format by Panini UK with Hachette Partworks.
The series was only available to purchase in the UK and the Republic of Ireland, and wasn't available digitally.
It featured revised instalments of Andrew Pixley's contributions to the Archive feature in Doctor Who Magazine and Doctor Who Magazine Special Edition, covering the making of Doctor Who's stories on television, along with some cases where features have been written from scratch specifically for The Complete History.

John Ainsworth was initially the sole editor, but later on he alternated his role with Mark Wright, with Ainsworth editing the even-numbered issues and Wright editing the odd-numbered ones. (DWMSE 47)
The cover artwork was illustrated by Lee Johnson. The series was billed to present "the history of every Doctor Who TV story alongside a wealth of photographs". (DWM 490) The spine of each issue was colour-coded by Doctor.
The publication order of the issues didn't match the order in which the stories were broadcast, instead going back and forth throught all of the show's history in order to "reflect the variety and breadth of the series".
