Doctor Who: A Short History of Everyone
About this deal
And if you remember the episodes of 11 with Amy, Rory, and River you will remember that "an image of an angel becomes itself an angel" so actually having this image doesn't make any sense. This book was also updated with new entries to cover topics from the Thirteenth Doctor's era and the "Classic Era" of Doctor Who. For instance, the book has an extensive (though not exhaustive) encyclopedia of foes, enemies, creatures etc that the Doctor has encountered.An incredible bind-up of three stunning Doctor Who guides, with brand-new content from the Thirteenth Doctor era*For over forty years, the Doctor has battled against the monsters and villains of the universe. First appearing on air in 1963, it follows the adventures of the Doctor, a Time Lord who travels through time and space, fighting alien monsters and saving the universe. The recycled material from previous instalments also carried over in-universe, as this book was stylised as as in-universe memoir put together by the Thirteenth Doctor, who acknowledged the re-use of material written by her previous incarnations and their friends, anticipating the possibility that the next Doctor was feeling "pretty weird" after regenerating. I know the book is supposedly for children, and is a super easy read, but seems a bit too removed from the lore for my tastes to be taken as a serious medium of encyclopedia Who-knowledge. Of course, if all the events and characters from 59 years of Doctor Who had been included, then the book would probably have been too heavy to lift.
Compiled from the vety best guides to the world of Doctor Who (with new entries from the Doctor herself), this is the ultimate book on the most magical of universes.The book is packed with information although it really concentrates on the latter years as opposed to the classic years and so there is no mention of the Zarbi from the Web Planet, Aridian Mire Beasts and Mechanoids from The Chase or The Master of the Land of Fiction from The Mind Robber, to name just a few. Furthermore, the material taken from The Companion's Companion was entirely rewritten to be from the Doctor's perspective instead of that of Clara Oswald, and information about monsters and adversaries from The Dangerous Book of Monsters was given an expanded focus on the "Classic Era" as the original book was primarily focused on those seen since 2005. This book brings together the best - and the worst - of his enemies, companions, and fellow Time Lords.
