Book - Doctor Who: The Women Who Lived


Celebrating Jodie Whittaker’s debut as the Thirteenth Doctor, BBC Books will publish Doctor Who: The Women Who Lived, a beautifully illustrated collection of inspiring tales of the women of Doctor Who this September...

Written by Christel Dee, former presenter of YouTube series Doctor Who: The Fan Show, and author Simon Guerrier, the book will feature 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 of these women has made a unique contribution to the world of Doctor Who. Whether they’re facing down Daleks or thwarting a Nestene invasion, they 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.

llustrated throughout with specially-commissioned artwork by a team of female artists – Jo Bee, Gwen Burns, Sophie Cowdrey, Lydia Futral, Kate Holden, Bev Johnson, Dani Jones, Sonia Leong, Cliodhna Lyons, Mogamoka, Valentina Mozzo, Naniiebim, Lara Pickle, Emma Price, Katy Shuttleworth, Natalie Smillie, Rachael Smith, Raine Szramski, Tammy Taylor, Emma Vieceli and Caz Zhu. The book also features new companion Yasmin, and an extended entry on the Thirteenth incarnation of the Doctor.
