“Even though they’re gone from the world, they’re never gone from me.”
The Doctor is many things – curious, funny, brave, protective of her friends…and a shameless namedropper. While she and her companions battled aliens and travelled across the universe, The Doctor hinted at a host of previous, untold adventures with the great and the good: we discovered she got her sunglasses from Pythagoras (or was it Audrey Hepburn?), lent a mobile phone to Elvis, had an encounter with Amelia Earhart where she discovered that a pencil-thick spider web can stop a plane, had a ‘wet weekend’ with Harry Houdini, learning how to escape from chains underwater, and more.
In this collection of new stories, Star Tales takes you on a rip-roaring ride through history, from 500BC to the swinging 60s, going deeper into The Doctor’s notorious name-dropping and revealing the truth behind these anecdotes.
