Reading History from a Carrot…

Doctor Who: A History of the Universe in 100 ObjectsComing 27th September is Doctor Who: A History of the Universe in 100 Objects by James Goss and Steve Tribe – a novel and brilliant look at the Doctor’s life through his most memorable objects.

Each object tells a story whether it’s a fob watch at the onset of the Great War or a carrot growing on the first human colony on Mars. Taken together, they tell of empires rising and falling, wars won and lost, and planets destroyed and reborn.

A History of the Universe in 100 Objects is an indispensable guide to the most important items that have ever existed – or that are yet to exist.

Albert DePetrillo, senior editorial director for BBC Books, is clearly enchanted by the idea:

“How do you convey the size and originality of the Doctor Who universe? It seems impossible, but James and Steve’s book is perhaps the best place to start. They’ve selected 100 items from the history of the show and used them to tell a huge – and hugely enjoyable – story.

Anyone wanting to explore the deeply creative world of Doctor Who will love it – and Peter McKinstry’s stunning artwork helps make this the ultimate gift for Doctor Who fans.”

Doctor Who: A History of the Universe in 100 Objects by James Goss and Steve Tribe is available to pre-order from Amazon for release on the 27th September for £17.00

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
