The latest wave of Doctor Who-themed Mr Men books, written and illustrated by Adam Hargreaves, is available to purchase from today.
Following the release of the previous eight books in the collection, from today fans can get their hands on Dr Third, Dr Fifth, Dr Sixth and Dr Tenth.
These four latest Dr Men books complete the range of full-time Doctors that have aired on screen up to and including Peter Capaldi’s Twelfth Doctor, whose final episode aired at Christmas.
Speaking in last month’s edition of Doctor Who Magazine (#521), Adam Hargreaves – eldest son of Mr Men creator Roger Hargreaves – discussed what a potential Dr Thirteenth, based on Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor, might look like:
“…I’d have to play around with it. She’d probably be one of the more difficult ones to draw. The better looking they are, the more difficult they become because there’s less obvious facial characteristics that you can play on.”
The same interview also saw Hargreaves also reflect on the success of the Dr Men range, having been initially sceptical about bringing two such seemingly disparate properties together:
“…what became apparent as I worked on it in more detail was there is a sense of humour in Doctor Who that’s actually not that far removed from the Mr Men. It’s a similar British sense of humour, I think, which actually helped to pull and tie the two together.”
