‘Even though they’re gone from the world, they’re never gone from me.’
The Doctor is many things – curious, funny, brave, protective of her
friends...and a shameless namedropper. While she and her companions
battled aliens and travelled across the universe, the Doctor hinted at a
host of previous, untold adventures with the great and the good: we
discovered she got her sunglasses from Pythagoras (or was it Audrey
Hepburn?); lent a mobile phone to Elvis; had an encounter with Amelia
Earhart where she discovered that a pencil-thick spider web can stop a
plane; had a 'wet weekend' with Harry Houdini, learning how to escape
from chains underwater; and more.
In this collection of new
stories, Star Tales takes you on a rip-roaring ride through history,
from 500BC to the swinging 60s, going deeper into the Doctor's notorious
name-dropping and revealing the truth behind these anecdotes.
