It’ s a good day for avid readers of Whovian books. Firstly, The Women Who Lived is now available to buy. Secondly, the BBC have released the covers of 3 new novels featuring the Thirteenth Doctor which will be released late October.
The Women Who Lived
Written by YouTube’s The Fan Show’s host Christel Dee and Simon Guerrier, the book contains a collection of 85 women from the show’s 55 year history, with some non-fiction reference and some small stories to accompany the characters, along with some beautiful illustrations from a range of female artists.
From Sarah Jane Smith to Bill Potts, from Susan Foreman to the Thirteenth Doctor, women are the beating heart of Doctor Who. Whether they’re facing down Daleks or thwarting a Nestene invasion, these women don’t hang around waiting to be rescued – they roll their sleeves up and get stuck in. Scientists and soldiers, queens and canteen workers, they don’t let anything hold them back.
Featuring historical women such as Agatha Christie and Queen Victoria alongside fan favourites like Rose Tyler and Missy, The Women Who Lived tells the stories of women throughout space and time. Beautifully illustrated by a team of all-female artists, this collection of inspirational tales celebrates the power of women to change the universe.
