A collection of bios and illustrations that “celebrate the brilliant women who’ve appeared in Doctor Who over the years”.
Entries range from the obvious – Barbara Wright, Rose Tyler – to the more obscure, like Hur from “An Unearthly Child”.
Pictures are provided by over 20 illustrators, most sticking to a whimsical, often childlike style. We particularly love the fed-up expression of The Inquisitor from “The Trial Of A Time Lord”.
The entries provide straightforward, kid-friendly explanations of the characters, their encounters with the Doctor and their achievements.
After the main section of the book, there are entries for the Doctor herself, a few honourable mentions, and then, touchingly, Verity Lambert, Who’s very first producer.
