“Books! The best weapons in the world!” The Doctor
Today’s Top Ten Tuesday is: Top Ten Books I would recommend to a Doctor Who Fan. These are the books to help get a Whovian through the week when there is no Doctor on TV.
- The Time Machine: because this is the fundamental book that anyone who is interested in time travel.
- Ocean at the End of the Lane: the latest book by Neil Gaiman who wrote The Doctor’s wife. There are definite elements in the story that are similar to show, with a spooky fairytale overtone.
- Hitchhikers guide to the Galaxy: Like the Time Machine, the Hitchiker’s guide is a fundamental book for those that are interested in Science Fiction and outerspace. Likewise, it has that whimsy that goes along with the Theme of Doctor Who.
- The River of No Return: I just love this book, it’s a great piece of time travel fiction.
- Oh the Places you’ll go: this one just needs no explanations
- The Wizard of Oz: the original Frank L. Baum version is delightfully odd and fairytale like. There is so much more depth to the story than can be expressed in the movies or plays.
- Where the Sidewalk Ends: “Ickle me, pickle me, tickle me too, went for a ride in a flying shoe” I like to think that Shel Silverstein was a Whovian and that Ickle me, Pickle Me and Tickle me were just time lords that flew around in a shoe that was bigger on the inside.
- Alice in Wonderland and…
- Through the Looking Glass: Like the Doctor Who world Wonderland is a fairytale, it’s dangerous and normal human logic does not apply.
- Any one of the Doctor Who Fan fiction books. The adventure doesn’t have to end when your favorite doctor is no longer on television.
