Doctor Who: 100 Scariest Monsters (2011)

Doctor Who: 100 Scariest Monsters
BBC Children’s Books, Published by the Penguin Group, 2011
208 pages

You can try, but you will never convince me that “Doctor Who” is just a kids’ show. I believe this book, Doctor Who: 100 Scariest Monsters, backs up my belief. From the Daleks to the Cybermen, the Nestene Consciousness to the Silence, there have been some truly terrifying villains on this BBC television series.

“Doctor Who” is one of the longest-running television shows in the world, and has an insanely loyal fan base. Everyone has a different favorite Doctor, companion, and villain. This book covers all eras of the franchise, from the first Doctor’s enemies (War Machines, Zarbi) to the eleventh Doctor’s foes (Peg Dolls, Krafayis). Full-color photos (when available), a short description, and a “Fear Factor” meter round out each entry, along with which Doctors did battle with each monster. It goes without saying, this is a must-have book for “Doctor Who” fans.

The only shortcoming I see in this book is the omisson of episode titles. It may not be difficult to ascertain which episodes feature the Hoix by using other resources, but it would nice to have all the information in one place.

Which is your favorite monster? Personally, the Weeping Angels have given me nightmares, and I can’t wait to see what role they play in the upcoming episodes.

  1. Man, am I excited to get this! Scariest monster would have to be the Peg Dolls. Those things were creepy! For a while, though, it was the Weeping Angels.
