The following synopsis is from Amazon in the UK.
Book Description
A wickedly affectionate parody of the nation's favourite SF series

Synopsis
Doctor Whom, the grammatically correct TimeLord (or should that be Time Lord? Or is it Timelord?) has come to save our universe from the terror's of sloppy syntax and bad grammar. With his intrepid assistant Lynne: hes here to correct greengrocers sign's, popular fiction and government memos (memoes?) before inaccurate and lazy communication rips apart the very fabric of the space time continuum. Is it any wonder that the rise of global warming has coincided with the decline in the teaching of Latin in our schools? I do'nt think so. Will the Doctor save us all? or will his evil nemisises (nemisiss? nemisi?) The Dalek's triumph and rule over a universe where no-one has any clear idea of the correct usage of semi-colons?
It looks like a fun, fast(?) read, gdwdwrkr. Are you a fan of Doctor Who?

It seems to me that Doctor Who would be correct for the title of a book. Maybe if the book were called For Doctor Whom, the Bell Tolls one might use the oblique form of this pronoun.
