first_img HBO Max Scores Exclusive ‘Doctor Who’ Streaming RightsJo Tro Do Plo Plo No: ‘Doctor Who’ Welcomes Back Familiar Monster The third (and presumably final) wave of Dr. Men stories hit shelves this week.Fans can catch up with the Third, Fifth, Sixth, and Tenth (finally!) Doctors, as conceived by Adam Hargreaves.The newest additions feature familiar faces (companions Jo Grant and Mike Yates; Tegan Jovanka and Nyssa; Peri Brown) and fearsome foes, alongside the titular Time Lord in another four of his incarnations.The $5.99 paperbacks are available now from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books A Million, Hudson Booksellers, IndieBound, Powell’s Target, and Wal-Mart, or via the Penguin Random House website.When prolific British author of the Mr. Men and Liss Miss books Roger Hargreaves died in 1988, his son Adam took over the series, continuing to convey simple moral lessons.(via BBC)Last spring, he teamed with Puffin Books, BBC Worldwide, and Sanrio Global for a new storybook mashup: Doctor Who Meets The World of Hargreaves.Written and illustrated by the second-generation cartoonist, the series combines Doctor Who‘s penchant for storytelling with the humor and design made famous by Hargreaves Senior.Every story weaves a different narrative: Dr. Third battles Ice Warriors, Dr. Fifth outwits the Master, Dr. Sixth must stop the Rani, and Dr. Tenth is on vacation—until the Sontarans show up.“Can he stop the mighty warriors from invading yet another peaceful planet?” the official synopsis asks of the pointy-nosed, ruffle-haired Time Lord.(via BBC)The short tales—384 pages across 12 books—are aimed at three-to-seven-year-olds. But no one will judge you for sneaking into your kids’ room for a quick visit with the Doctor.There is no word on whether a thirteenth story will be added to the lineup, in honor of newcomer Jodie Whittaker.Last seen plunging through the cosmos, the first female Doctor is expected to debut this autumn. In the meantime, Whovians can stay occupied with season 10 deleted scenes and The Gallifrey Times’ 2018 Doctor Who World Cup. Stay on targetlast_img
