The Essential Doctor Who: Monsters is out right this very minute from Panini, and I’m pleased to say I’ve written a number of entries covering some of the Doctor’s horrific enemies.
Here’s the official blurb from the Panini site:
The Essential Doctor Who: Monsters explores the dark side of the programme. This lavish new bookazine, the fifth in the series, devotes 116-pages of all-new material to the aliens that have threatened the Doctor since the series began in 1963. Daleks, Cybermen and Weeping Angels are all covered, alongside more obscure menaces. From the Abzorbaloff to Zygons, this is the complete guide to Doctor Who monsters.
The Essential Doctor Who: Monsters is on sale at WH Smith and selected Supermarkets, price £9.99.
I’ve written the entries for the Kraal, Mentors (love a bit of the Sixth Doctor, me), Raxacoricofallapatorians (oh, and the Ninth too, quelle surprise), Sycorax and – best of all – the Daleks!
A big thanks to editor Marcus Hearn for asking me to get involved. Don’t forget to grab your copy. It’s a monstrously good read. Ho-ho!
