4.0 out of 5 stars Don't believe the hype 17 May 2009
It's hard not to be cynical here but actually I can see the logic in Justin Richards' three bestselling Doctor Who enemies books being put into one bumper edition. I don't think Richards should get too much stick as he probably didn't have too much to do with it getting published, however despite a moderate amount of new information - The Zarbi get a first look in for example - this is basically the same content as before, just with a new cover and a new name. I would therefore give this a miss if you have 'Aliens and enemies', 'Monsters and Villains', and 'Creatures and Demons' already, but if not then I highly recommend you do, as it's a superbly detailed book with loads of great photos, covering most of the good Doctor's notable adversaries from 1963 to the present day.

4.0 out of 5 stars Eldrad Must Live! 26 Oct 2009
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Undoubtedly a wonderful book for young Doctor Who fans. This should keep them happy for quite a long while, with not only the new series' monsters included but most of the classic Dr Who monsters as well. There are lots of photos (many impressively re-coloured and 'computer-twigged') along with full descriptions of the aliens' history and serials they have appeared in.

For us older Whovians it's a little frustrating though, having no index (although the monsters are supposed to be in alphabetical order, they are often included by serial name rather than monster name) and many omissions. Never mind the missing Voords or the Fish People, I've been waiting for a full-length picture of the female incarnation of Eldrad since 1976! And she's not here!!
