A Librarian Reads…

The Missy Chronicles (Doctor Who)

Six stories about Missy, the latest regeneration of The Doctor’s nemesis The Master. As a woman, Missy’s evil tendencies have to find a new form of expression. She finds herself unwelcome at The Scoundrels Club, but soon makes the men there wish they’d treated her no differently just because of her sex. A mission for the High Council is meant to bring her under their control, but she soon turns the tables on them. A magic teddy bear, a time vortex, a secret club of women to change women’s role in history, and her final adventure reunited with her former self.

Fans of Doctor Who, and especially the show’s best-loved villain, as well as those who like stories about gender freedom, will love these stories. Recommended for readers in high school and up.
