Books: The Ultimate Monster Guide cover and details

BBC Books have released information and the cover for the upcoming release of Doctor Who: The Ultimate Monster Guide. The Book is written by Justin Richards, and is the follow up to the three previous books released. The book is out on 8th October and is priced at £14.99.
The ultimate guide to the monsters the Doctor has encountered in centuries of travelling space and time

For The Ultimate Monster Guide, Doctor Who historian Justin Richards has completely revised and updated entries from his first three bestselling reference books – and included a wealth of new material from both the current and the classic series – to create the most comprehensive guide to the Doctor’s enemies ever published. From Adipose and Autons to Zarbi and Zygons, this guide tells you everything you need to know about the many dastardly creatures the Doctor has fought over the 46 years since he first appeared on television.

The Guide also includes behind the scenes secrets of how the monsters were created, as well as design drawings and images. Find out how the Cybermen were redesigned over the years, and how Davros was resurrected to lead his Daleks once again. Discover the computer magic that made the Beast possible, and the make-up wizardry that created the Weeping Angels. Learn how many incarnations of the Master the Doctor has encountered, and which other misguided Time Lords he has defeated...

Lavishly illustrated with photos and artwork throughout, The Ultimate Monster Guide is essential reading for all travellers in time and space!
