Doctor Who: Now We Are Six Hundred - A Collection of Time Lord Verse

by James Goss, illustrated by Russell T Davies
£9.99   hardback  Ebury Publishing (BBC Books) (2017)

Doctor Who: Now We Are Six Hundred - A Collection of Time Lord Verse by James Goss, illustrated by Russell T Davies With illustrations by Russell T Davies, original showrunner of the new-era Doctor Who, the first ever Doctor Who poetry collection — a charming, funny and whimsical illustrated collection of verse that celebrates the joys and pitfalls of getting older... Time-Lord older.
 
Like many of us, the older they get, the more Time Lords realize how little they understand the universe around them. This delightful collection of poems — the first volume of Doctor Who verse published — offers moments of insight, wit, and reassurance for the maturing inhabitants of Gallifrey (and everywhere else)
 
RETIRING
 
On days I don’t want to Doctor much
I worry that I shall lose my touch
All that running down those corridors
Thwartings of tyrants and dreadful bores
Brave rescues from the Foul Monster’s Lair
And firm trouncing all the Demons There.
 
Chaos never ends, oh that’s the shame
So yes I tire of just one more game.
Sometimes when the same old fight begins
I fear, just once, I’ll let Evil win.
And then, on second thought, perhaps I won’t
Because they’re Monsters, and so I don’t.
On days like that I don’t think at all
That being the Doctor’s so bad after all.
