100 Objects and a T-Shirt!
A nigh on indispensable guide to the objects that have or are going to have defined the Doctor – from ancient urns and medieval flasks to sonic screwdrivers and glass Daleks, these 100 objects tell the story of the entire universe.
Each item has a unique tale of its own, 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.
Within its pages lie hidden histories of Time Lords and Daleks, the legend of the Loch Ness Monster, the plot to steal the Mona Lisa and the story of Shakespeare’s lost play. You’ll find illustrated guides to invisible creatures, the secret origins of the internet, and how to speak Mechonoid.
The t-shirt illustrates the TARDIS entry from the book and is only available in Large.
Doctor Who: A History of the Universe in 100 Objects by James Gross and Steve Tribe is available to pre-order for release on 27th September from Amazon for £17.00.
