The sprawling mythology and long-established fandom of Doctor Who makes it a fruitful target for parody and satire. So as you might expect, over the decades a random and eclectic selection of books have appeared which provide an irreverent take on everyone’s favourite Time Lord. These include collections of cartoons, volumes of humourous poems, anthologies of blog posts or fanzine articles... not to mention full-length (and unlicenced) parody novels.
