legends so when I saw Doctor Who Myths and Legends available NetGalley I idn t hesitate to reuest it Needless to say I was beyond thrilled *When I Got Approved For This Title *I got approved for this title m also really glad that it ended up being as amazing as I hoped it would beThe book contains 14 short stories in the world of Doctor Who that are all retellings of certain mythology and legends that I m sure everyone is familiar with Some stories were better than others but I efinitely liked them all Some stories were even brilliant in my humble opinion My favorite story was The Enigma of Sisterhood Below you ll find all the titles and my rating for the stories Also contained in this book are some truly amazing illustrations made by Adrian Salmon These were a big part of why I loved it so muchThe titles of all the stories my ratings for themThe Mondas Touch B Like several other Doctor Who publications over the last couple of years this is a collection of short stories based around a certain theme The inspiration for this collection is mainly just the Greco Roman myths even the story featuring Osirans It is a shame it oesn t have a wider scope of myths and legends from around the worldThe stories are science fiction retellings of myths in much the same way as televised serials Underworld and The Horns of Nimon It might have been beneficialand legends so when I saw Doctor Who Myths and Legends available
for the collection if some of the tales were historicalmythological in nature with alienscience fiction elements as this would have giventhe collection if some of the tales were historicalmythological in nature with alienscience fiction elements as this would have given collection a bit varietyThis Lignin Biodegradation: Microbiology, Chemistry, and Potential Applications: Volume II does mean however that they can be enjoyed merely as science fiction or Doctor Who stories without reuiring any knowledge of the mythology they are based upon Obviously though there is to be gained if youo have some familiarity with the original material However helpfully the author has listed with each story title the myth that has inspired it although it is Odysseus crew that escape the cyclops rather than the ArgonautsThe Doctor rarely appears And when he Something Wicked does he uses another alias or remains anonymous He operates as a mysterious figure that usually aids the lead protagonist rather than adopting the main role In such a way he echoes the behaviour of many an intervening mythological figure which of course in turn provided some of the inspiration for the concept of the Doctor in the first placeSeveral other characters from the programme make appearances Some of these such as Horus. For thousands of years epic stories have been passedown from Time Lord to student generation to generation The truth of these tales was lost millennia ago but the myths and legends themselves are timelessThese are the most enduri. Have only been mentioned in it before However the bulk of these are Time Lords mainly the key personalities in their history such as Rassilon *and OmegaAs might be expected the bulk of the infamous monstersaliens make an appearance However as *OmegaAs might be expected the bulk of the infamous monstersaliens make an appearance However as is a focus upon the Time Lords and events in their own history there is substantial material concerned with the ark times the period of chaos and old wars of the Time Lords as they establish themselves This means monstersaliens such as the Racnoss the Vampires and themselves This means monstersaliens such as the Racnoss the Vampires and are all featured and there is of an exploration of the civilisationscultures of these species not the best Dr Who book I have read but not the worse either This was a gift for me Love the book so far If you re looking for an analysis of how these myths and legends fit into the core Doctor Who worldfandom or something like that you re looking in the wrong place If you want a review of how much you like this collection of short stories even if you re not a hardcore fan I guess that s where this review would fit Note I have watched some Doctor Who as my siblings are fans but I m generally too lazy to follow a TV series Don t kill meDoctor Who Myths and Legends is a collection of shorts mostly based inaround Gallifrey or at least various Time Lords that makes for light sci fi reading This is probably harsh judgement based
the fact that I ve just finished reading Paula Guran s Swords Against Darkness but it is what it is reading The stories are short in some cases almost simplistic and some feel as if they end too abruptly Some background knowledge about the Doctor Who universe is encouraged I m guessing that a true fan would Freud and His Followers decipher what was going on in The Unwanted Gift of Prophecy better than IidHowever the stories are based on myths well known examples include King Midas Medusa the Trojan Horse and Pandora s box others are a little obscure so anyone interested in retellings of myths would probably like these science fiction spins to those classic tales Doctor Who fans need not fret Lord High President Rassilon makes multiple appearances as oes the Doctor though not in every single story You will also meet the Daleks and the Weeping AngelsThe stories I enjoyed particularly include The Mondas Touch The Terrible Manussa The Angels Of Vengeance The Jeopardy Of Solar Proximity and The Multi Faceted WarNote I received an e galley of this book via NetGalley in return for an honest review Stories.
