Doctor Who: Aliens And Enemies (Doctor Who (BBC)). Doctor Who: Character Encyclopedia. Justin Richards is the Creative Consultant for the BBC's range of Doctor Who books, and has written a fair few of them himself. As well as writing for stage, screen and audio, he is also the author of The Invisible Detective and Time Runners series of novels for children, and Agent Alfie for younger readers.

Richards' first published novels were based on Doctor Who, published in the Virgin New Adventures, Virgin Missing Adventures and Virgin Decalog series. He continued to write for BBC Books after they resumed publishing Doctor Who stories, and as well as producing numerous novels, audio books, activity books and reference books he is Creative Director for the BBC Books range of Doctor Who novels.

He regularly faces all kinds of aliens and enemies, whom he prefers to outwit rather than use violence against. Throughout its run, Doctor Who has always been notable for producing some of the most inventive and frightening monsters and villains ever shown on the small screen. Here’s a selection of ten of the very best. The Zygons are unique on this list as they have only ever made one official on-screen appearance in Doctor Who. Seen in 1975’s Terror of the Zygons, they are an alien race with shape-shifting abilities and are able to take the form of another living being. Their technology is organic is nature, meaning their ships and the equipment they use is actually alive.

Doctor Who: Aliens and Enemies is considered a paperback. The cover stock is at least fairly firm so it should hold up. The glossy pages cover all of the aliens and enemies from the first doctor right up to David Tennant. The pictures are not only in color, but describe different aspects of the creatures. Some of the creatures are described in depth (such as the Clockwork Robots from the "Girl in the Fireplace" episode). Another episode that is described in depth is "The Christmas Invasion", which shows how the Sycorax were created showing their bone-like face. Although there is more information regarding the ninth and tenth doctors than there is with the others, this is still a good reference tool for the serious Doctor Who collector. Some of these pages are also included in "Doctor Who: The Ultimate Monster Guide", 2009.

A message from the CYBER-LEADER of the CYBER FLEET

ATTENTION: HUMANS

The "Time War" left the DALEKS and the TIMELORDS de-stroyed. Only the TIMELORD known as THE DOCTOR is still at large in time and space. His foes are so numerous and varied, that their existence is known even to the backwards inhabitants of the Earth. In fact, after so many foiled invasion attempts by that interfering "Defender of Mankind" that they are now aware of even OUR great Cyber-race. This knowledge is revealed in the second fully illustrated "ALIENS and ENEMIES" what the Humans refer to as "a book" is a guide to past, present and future menaces. Continuing where the previous text left off (DR.WHO: MONSTERS & VILLAINS,see the message from the MASTER in my reviews) included this time are races like the SYCORAX, who were thwarted on "Christmas" by the newly regenerated 10th incarnation of THE DOCTOR, also THE REAPERS, scavengers of time itself, the GELTH, the ZARBI, and more. Also including ancient (and classic) beings such as the Celestrial Toymaker, and SUTEKH, so powerful that the foolish Humans believed him the god of darkness itself.

More galactic secrets are revealed, facts, figures and images of each creature feature alongside a synopsis of their sightings (episodes they appeared in, plus, behind-the-scenes information). Revealing insights into how each were created and brought to life, including each our glorious origins, OUR new designs ('06) and our weakness to a certain element which shall not be repeated here!

This admittedly within these "pages" are contained much information that will prove to be very useful and give these EARTHLINGS an unfortunate weapon in defending against future (and past) insurgences, but the great Cyber-race...SHALL NOT BE STOPPED.

RESISTANCE is USELESS HUMANS.

end of transmission...CYBER-LEADER out.

I'll be honest -- this book is fluff for the most part. Simple summaries of some of the characters significant (Cybermen) and insignificant (Zarbi) that have graced our TV screens as part of the Whoverse.

However it is beautifully put together with clear pictures from the show and the addition of production art and design sketches is very welcome.

Pure candy and quite excellent.

This is a must for any Whovian, as the references of aliens and enemies is so important! This goes from #1 through #10!

The book offers a fun, interesting look at the various aliens and monsters of the modern Doctor Who's second series, including design sketches and make-up processes. There are also profiles on some of the more famous classic creatures.

An easy read that even casual fans would probably enjoy.

This book picks up where Monsters and Villains leaves off, placing even more Doctor Who monsters at your fingertips. There are plenty of photos to aid the text. In fact, you can almost reverse that to state that the text aids the bright, colorful photos. The book reads like an encyclopedia, containing monsters and aliens in alphabetical order from the new series, such as the Gelth, the Empty Child, and the new fiercer looking Cybermen, as well as classic villains, like Sutekh, the Axons, the Daemons, and the Seaweed Monster from Fury From The Deep. The text contains a plot synopsis from each story the monsters appear in, plus sidebars of various aspects and characters from each story. There are even descriptions of how the production team created certain monsters.

Did I mention the photos? While the text is very informative, the photos are the gem of this book. Color stills from each story and background shot of the production team hard at work feature heavily in this volume. This is a definite must-have for die-hard Doctor Who fans, as well as new fans who are just learning about the classic series. However, make sure you purchase Monsters and Villains as well. These two books go hand-in-hand. If you just have one, you'll be missing out.
