A fun story & great to know where Missy's name originated from! Also loved that it highlighted how differently women can be treated.
Lords & Masters by Cavan Scott: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Definitely felt like a Doctor Who story, with a nice reminder that Missy isn't the only Time Lord with a bad streak.
Teddy Sparkles Must Die! by Paul Magrs: ⭐️⭐️.5
A bit strange & a tad boring - but I appreciated the twist on Mary Poppins.
The Liar, The Glitch & The War Zone by Peter Anghelides: ⭐️⭐️⭐️.5
Another story that definitely fit in well with the Doctor Who universe; slightly weird & nonsensical at times though.
Girl Power! by Jacqueline Rayner: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Definitely the best out of the lot - Jacqueline wrote all of the characters perfectly & the writing really made me laugh. The theme of the chapter was also fabulous, & I think it's a shame that Jacqueline was the only female contributor.
Alit in Underland by Richard Dinnick: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I could read a full length novel about Missy & The Master if it had been written in this way; a great end to the book.
Overall, Magrs & Anghelides sort of let down the other authors, but The Missy Chronicles was still a fun & interesting read that has sated my Doctor Who addiction for now. Next time though, the BBC should just let Jacqueline write about Missy
I hope the authors will decide to write a follow up - Missy is a fantastic character, and it feels like there could be many more stories to tell.
There are 6 in total each manages to capture Missy and add some much needed filler to the character.
If you enjoyed Missy on screen this is a must read.
Also a good read if you just love doctor who
