Meet the women who run the Whoniverse. The first official book published to accompany the new series, celebrating Jodie Whittaker’s debut as the Thirteenth Doctor.
Written by Christel Dee, former presenter of Doctor Who: The Fan Show and Doctor Who's digital marketing manager, and Simon Guerrier, co-author of Whographica and The Scientific Secrets of Doctor Who for BBC Books, and his other books include Whoniversal Records. This book features more than 75 inspiring tales of remarkable women of the Whoniverse, both real and imagined.
From historical figures such as Agatha Christie and Queen Victoria to fan favourites like Bill Potts and River Song, each woman has made a unique contribution to the world 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, women from outlandish science-fiction and those steeped in real history, they don’t let anything hold them back. Illustrated throughout with specially-commissioned artwork by a team of female artists – including Gwen Burns, Valentina Mozzo, Sonia Leong, and more, this collection of inspirational tales celebrates the power of women to change the universe.
Come along and test your knowledge of the Whoniverse.
