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.
