Doctor Who: 100 Scariest Monsters is an illustrated guide written by Justin Richards and published in 2011. The book includes a hundred profiles of monsters, aliens, robots and villains from both the classic and revived series of Doctor Who. Each profile includes a fear factor scale ranging from 1 to 10, as well as sections on origin, Doctors encountered, and description.



  • Two separate profiles of the Silurians are included, one titled "Silurians" and the other titled "Homo Reptilia". Because of this, it could be argued that only ninety-nine monsters are described, rather than the claimed one hundred. Additionally, only the Eleventh Doctor is listed to have encountered "Homo Reptilia", while the Third and Fifth Doctors are also listed to encounter the Silurians.
  • On the Robots of Death profile, the planet Kaldor is misspelled as Caldor.
  • On the page of the Slitheen, the description of them had Slitheen misspelled as Sltheen.
  • On the Mr Sin page, Li H'sen Chang's last name is misspelled "Change". Additionally, the "s" in "H'sen" is capitalised.
  • The Sandminer robots are misnamed "Robots of Death".
  • The Eight Legs are misnamed "Giant Spiders".
  • The K1 Robot is misnamed "Giant Robot".
  • The Roboform are misnamed "Pilot Fish Santa Robots".
  • The Osiran service robots are misnamed "Mummies".
  • The Catkind are misnamed "Cat People of New Earth".
  • Only the Ninth Doctor is listed to encounter the Slitheen, despite the Tenth Doctor briefly seeing one in The End of Time. The same goes for most members of the Alliance.
