Grimms' Fairy Tales was a collection of fairy tales that were according to Bernice Summerfield written by the Brothers Grimm. (AUDIO: Buried Treasures) Evelyn Smythe compared Sancreda to "something out of Grimms' Fairy Tales." (AUDIO: The Spectre of Lanyon Moor)
Behind the scenes Edit
Though not identified as such in DWU fiction, some tales from the book that are referenced in the DWU include: Hansel and Gretel, the Little Red Riding Hood, and the Big Bad Wolf. (PROSE: Managra, The Monsters Inside) The story of the Shepherd Boy (described by the Twelfth Doctor as "Shepherd's Boy") is named by the Doctor as being "according to them [the Brothers Grimm]", although he does not directly identify the story as a fairy tale they wrote. (TV: Heaven Sent) The Bad Wolf arc of series 1, in which the words appear across time and space following the Ninth Doctor and Rose Tyler, is named for the fairy tale.
The franchise has also parodied Grimm's Fairy Tales in the form of Gallifrey's fairy tales, such as The Three Little Sontarans, The Emperor Dalek's New Clothes and Snow White and the Seven Keys to Doomsday. (TV: Night Terrors, COMIC: Funny Phone Call!, PROSE: Snow White and the Seven Keys to Doomsday)
