"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 500 BCE to the swinging 60s, going deeper into the Doctor's notorious name-dropping and revealing the truth behind these anecdotes.
