Publisher's summary Edit

  • From the front cover:
Eight original illustrated adventures featuring the Tenth Doctor!
Includes writers from the award-winning BBC One Series.
  • From the back cover:
Thilling Adventures in Time and Space!
Join the Tenth Doctor and his trusty TARDIS as they travel to previously unexplored times and places in this new collection of stories, packed with frights and fun - and all lavishly illustrated in full colour!

The Time Lord faces up to a shapeless horror in a Victorian orphanage, meets sentient doors from another dimension, re-encounters the gaseous Gelth on a reality TV show, journeys to the Australian outback to investigate mysterious objects falling from the sky, travels to the end of the rainbow - quite literally! - and battles Vikings. A lot of Vikings ...

Additional Notes Edit

  • The Doctor Who Storybook 2010 followed the same successful format as in recent years.
  • So as not to make the Storybook any less 'official' than the BBC's offering, the Storybook was allowed to use the BBC logo on the cover, although the box stating "Published with permission of the BBC" was not found on the back this year.
  • The 'A letter from the Doctor' has been a regular feature in the Storybooks. This time around the 'letter' that was forwarded to the publisher by Russell T Davies (the outgoing showrunner of the TV series) took the form of a heavily interrupted transcript of a transmision.
Like a cryptic puzzle it begins with "Transmission Ends", and ends with "Transmission Begins", Reading from the bottom up each paragraph appears to reflect a Russell T Davies Doctor Who script, with eligible final/first words being:
"CAN'T BE ALIVE! NO! THE GATE ++++ ONE LAST LOOK +++ GOT TO SEE +++ DONT FORGET ME +++

Although "Don't forget me" were not the final words spoken by the Doctor in TV: The End of Time, they were among the final words spoken to Sarah Jane Smith in TV: The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith.

  • The Storybook was issued with a dustcover that inside the front flap had a short piece updating "The Changing Face of Doctor Who", and in the back flap a short piece on each of the featured writers accompanied by a small photo.
