The latest in the popular line of Mr.Men/Doctor Who mashup books continues as Dr. Thirteenth is released today
Keeping the range bang up to date with developments on TV, the new book features Dr. Thirteenth, complete with earring, boots and blonde bob. It even includes surprisingly on point characterization for its brief page count and cartoonish style (“Well,” said Graham, “We thought that would be your job, Doc.”) Entries in the series up until now have also been surprisingly true to the TV show, with the Doctor and their companions, Sarah Jane, River Song, and Donna Noble among them, battling the likes of the Weeping Angels, the Sontarans and even the Ogrons. To discover who Dr. Thirteenth, Yaz, Graham and Ryan will be facing off against, you’ll have to pick up a copy and see…
Dr. Thirteenth, the 32-page paperback book written and illustrated by Adam Hargreaves, combines the iconic storytelling of the television series with the whimsical humour and design made famous by his father, Roger Hargreaves. Also available are books featuring all the previous Doctors, from Dr. First to Dr. Twelfth. Plus the Christmas themed special Dr. Tenth Christmas Surprise. Blogtor Who puts the extra Dr. Tenth book down to David Tennant technically playing two regenerations of the Doctor…
In addition, Dr. Thirteenth and the earlier books (except for Christmas Surprise) will be collected in The 13 Doctors Collection, out on the 7th of March next year.
Dr. Thirteenth is available now from Amazon and all good bookshops in both paperback and limited edition hardback editions.
An all-new Doctor Who adventure featuring the Thirteenth – and first female! – Doctor reimagined in the style of Roger Hargreaves. The Doctor, Graham, and Ryan try and come up with a fabulous surprise for Yaz on her birthday. And what an explosive surprise it is . .
Dr. Thirteenth is published by BBC Childrens Books and recommended for children aged seven and upwards.
