Doctor Who Books: Myths & Legends (Illustrated Hardback)

 

The very first BBC Book of illustrated Time Lord mythology - epic tales from the whoniverse.

For thousands of years, epic stories have been passed down from Time Lord to student, generation to generation. The truth of these tales was lost millennia ago, but the myths and legends themselves are timeless.

These are the most enduring of those tales. From the princess Manussa and her giant snake Mara, to the Vardon Horse of Xeriphin, these stories shed light on the universe around us and the beings from other worlds that we meet. Myths hold up a mirror to our past, present and future, explaining our culture, our history, our hopes and fears.

A collection of epic adventures from the Time Lords’ mist-covered past, Myths and Legends is a unforgettable gallery of heroes and villains, gods and monsters.

Written by Richard Dinnick, the book contains 14 short stories all based on existing tales that have been given a brand new whoniverse twist. Dinnick has previously written TV, books and comics for BBC, ITV and Disney.

Retailing for £12.99, published by BBC Books. Due for release 29th June 2017. Forbidden Planet are currently offering signed copies here.

Satellite Five Review: ★★★★ - Short stories always provide the reader with much more variety in writing styles and character choice and this is no different. Dinnick produces excellent content with existing Doctor Who characters when combining them with old tales. The stand out story has to be the first which is titled 'The Mondas Touch'. Certainly worth buying and is a great late night read for most ages.
