Doctor Who – Fandom Reads

Welcome to the second post in my new weekly Fandom Reads series! This week, obviously we’re going to be tackling Doctor Who. First, because I’m obsessed (who isn’t? Seriously, if you haven’t watched this show yet, please give it a shot. I can even give you some episode recommendations that will give you a good taste for it, rather than starting from the first episode of series 1.) Second, because when I decided to do this series I immediately thought of the clue so that meant that DW would have to be done as soon as possible! Anywho… This fantastic television program follows the Doctor and his companion (friend, guys) as they travel in a ship not only through space but time as well. Sometimes they even fight evil by moonlight.

If you like Doctor Who, then you’re in luck because they actually have a ton of DW books written. I’ve read a few of them and they can be pretty fun easy reads. The series also has a spin-off called Torchwood which is no longer on the air and a new spin-off called the Class, both of which also have tie-in/companion novels.

Without further ado, here are my book recommendations if you’re a fan of Doctor Who:

A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray

This dimension jumping novel will evoke feelings of Doctor Who (despite the TARDIS not being able to go to alternate universes, usually). A race through worlds and pursuit of justice will appeal to fans of the dramatic sci-fi show.

A journey through space? Check. Hilarious adventures and diverse sidekicks? Check. Perfect for fans of Doctor Who? Of course!

Cloud Atlas jumps through time, intricately weaving a variety of narratives into one larger story in a way that is appealing to Doctor Who fans.

This young adult time travel novel will appeal to fan of both Doctor Who and history. As Etta jumps through time and into important moments in history, readers might be reminded of fantastic Doctor Who episodes like The Girl In the Fireplace or The Fires of Pompeii.

This upcoming release (September 26th) follows Far, the commander of a ship that steals artifacts from the past and sells them on the black market, to a heist on the Titanic and on a race through time.


What did you guys think of these recommendations? If you love Doctor Who and I totally missed a book/series that you think would be perfect, let me know! What do you think next week’s fandom will be?

      • Haha. Can’t let being busy get in the way of DW. I was told that you really need to watch the Class before starting Capaldi’s newest season, but I haven’t seen either yet. I just got home, so I’m going to watch them soon. I can’t wait!
