Doctor Who A Brief History of Time Lords Hardcover

Available to order from

The Time Lords are an immensely civilised, and immensely powerful, race. Yet we know very little about them, save that they can live forever (barring accidents) and possess the secrets of space and time travel. Their history has been shrouded in myth and mystery. Until now.

A Brief History of Time Lords unlocks the secrets of this ancient, legendary alien race – a civilisation that inflicted some of its most notorious renegades and criminals on the universe, but was also the benevolent power that rid the cosmos of its most fearsome enemies.

Drawn from the ancient records of Gallifrey, and handed down from generation to generation, this remarkable book reveals the Time Lords in all of their guises: pioneers and power-mad conspirators, time-travellers and tyrants, creators and destroyers.

    Question is, will it include the Expanded Whoniverse – both Novels & Audios? Including things like the Pythia, the Houses, the Other, the Looms, The Great Vampire War & the cultural shift from superstition to Science that was known as the Intuitive Revelation. Because if it doesn’t feature any of these massively important historical loadstones then it may as well be a History of Nothing!

    I’d rather the secrets stay locked but then this will probably just be a load of information we already know in a nicely presented volume.

    Any chance of Doctor Who Site posting atleast 2 interior photos of all the upcoming books so we can get an idea of what we are buying? Is it a reference book with photos, graphs, mainly words with a few images, original art, color, B&W?

      There have been enough of these books published over the last couple years that assuming this is a BBC Books release you can probably get a sense from looking at some of the others.

      Ever get the impression they’ll just continue to pump out books regardless of the ideas behind them drying up?
