Author's Summary: The Doctor, under his many names and titles, is known to billions of beings who never met him, on thousands of planets he never visited. How did they learn about the Last Time Lord?
Recced because: Stories that are about the Doctor's legend interest me a lot - mostly I tend to feel I know him quite well, and it's interesting to see him from an outsider's perspective. The conceit of this fic (an academic introduction to a bibliography of Doctoriana) is smart, and the ideas for various titles that might be contained in such a compendium are amusing while also being plausible. I also like the kindness and warmth of the supposed author of this piece - that's how I'd want the Doctor to be treated, really.
It is entirely beyond the scope of this guide to list derivative works based on the Doctor’s lives and deeds, such as Find Your Inner Companion, A Better Way to Live: Spiritual Secrets of The Lonely God, The Jelly Baby Diet, and Women Who Run With the Time Lord (Oprah Book Club selection for June 2017).
