The Doctor Who Stories is a neat hardback book with a logo printed in silver and blue making it very stylish. The content of the book comprises of a series of stories taken from the Doctor Who Files, which were published as separate books and showcased friends and foes of the Doctor. This particular volume has been updated to include an original story featuring the Master as his alter-ego, Harold Saxon. The stories are printed on glossy pages and heavily illustrated throughout with full colour photographs of friends and foes alike.
For continuity fans, the second Dalek story features the return of the Mechanoids, who originally appeared in the third Dalek television story, The Chase, broadcast in 1965 on BBC tv.
The hardback book comes in a beautifully illustrated slipcase. This book would make an ideal gift or an addition to existing collectable Doctor Who merchandise.

This book was a huge hit with my daughter who received it for her birthday. I think she went through it in less than a fortnight! It went to school with her, went in the car with her, it went everywhere with her, she couldn't get enough of it. Everyday it was 'I've read another story - it was great!'. Only problem being that when she had finished the book she was really upset...so she set about reading it again?! It's a really well presented book with plenty of pictures and, I think, well worth the money. My daughter is 11 and I know she would highly recommend it. She had some fairly expensive presents for her birthday but this was definately one of her favourites and as a mother I'm all for encouraging her to read!
