A new book about the remarkable women of the Who-niverse will be published to coincide with Jodie Whittaker’s debut as the 13th Doctor.
Doctor Who: The Women Who Lived features “inspiring tales” of the women of Doctor Who and is first official book published to accompany the new series.
Written by Christel Dee and Simon Guerrier, the book will feature more than 75 stories of women in 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.
The book is illustrated throughout with specially-commissioned artwork by a team of female artists – including Gwen Burns, Valentina Mozzo, Sonia Leong – the book also features new companion ‘Yasmin’, and an extended entry on the Doctor herself.
Dee said: “With Jodie Whittaker’s Thirteenth Doctor arriving this autumn, we thought this would be the perfect time to reflect upon the wealth of incredible female characters from Doctor Who’s 55 year history – because there are so many! We hope the stories in this book will inspire a whole new generation of fans and existing fans too.”
The book will be released on 27th September.
