Doctor Who: Myths and Legends by Richard Dinnick

Penguin Random House UK

BBC Books


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 an unforgettable gallery of heroes and villains, gods and monsters.

My review

This was a very enjoyable read. There are multiple stories that keep you immersed in the world of Doctor Who. There are many familiar characters and you even catch up with the Doctor a few times. Some of the stories seemed a little rushed toward the endings but it could also be that I didn’t want them to end. This is definitely a great prescription for a “Whovian” waiting on the next season or even next episode. It would also make a nice addition to a collector.

My Review

I really enjoyed these stories some more than others but in general, this is a great collection of Doctor Who stories that are worth a read. I listened to the audiobook of all 12 stories and I have to say listening to to the stories is the way to go. To know that for the 12th doctor’s story I got to hear Samuel Anderson’s (also known as Mr. Pink) accent up close and personal. Although I love the doctor, I haven’t seen many of the episodes before the ninth doctor. With that being said I feel that each author really studied the mannerisms and attitudes of their doctor.  Honestly, I didn’t want the stories to end.
