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), including such delights as:THE ENDWhen I was OneI was not much funWhen I was TwoI was barely throughWhen I was ThreeI liked strong teaWhen I was FourI hated a boreWhen I was FiveI was really aliveWhen I was SixI somehow could never quite fit in to what was expected of me, well, not exactly but that was because things weren’t neat and there are no easy rhymes in the universe and scansion, my dear Peri, is a thing that’s really overrated and you only have to look at a sunset to realise that creation itself is a poem and oh no wait, got it, of course, Fix! The line needed to end with Fix! (Or tricks. That’s works too.)When I was SevenI sent the gods to HeavenWhen I was EightKissing was greatWhen I was NineI had forgotten timeWhen I was TenI began againWhen I was ElevenI totally got evenWhen I was Twelve, I became as clever as cleverAnd now I think I’ll be Twelve for ever and ever*(*Unless, of course, there is a terrible catastrophe involving explosions, radiation, or heights. And then I guess we’ll find out what comes next. But the eyebrows won’t be as good.)
