The teenager got me this book for my birthday on the strength of it being publicised at Vworp! I think we were both a little disappointed with the reality which is capsule biographies of various women in Doctor Who not, as we'd somehow thought, new short stories about them. Still, there is lots of pretty artwork and it's the kind of thing I would have loved as a child/teenager getting into the fandom - though I'm less clear how much demand there is for this kind of thing in the age of the Internet.

I would have expected stories too. That does sound somewhat disappointing.

Over on DW parrot_knight has suggested it was conceived more as an art anthology which makes more sense of it.

From that subtitle I would have expected stories too.

Yes, its definitely suggestive of something it isn't, though I don't think anything actually claimed it was new fiction.
