From Wildthyme with Love was a novel written by Paul Magrs and released to coincide with the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who. The novel was written as a correspondence of 50 letters between Iris Wildthyme and Panda, each of them parodying at least one Doctor Who story.

Plot[edit | edit source]

1[edit | edit source]

Iris Wildthyme turns up on a dead planet on Panda's advice, Panda having claimed that it the location of a "Bring-a-Bottle" party. She finds the address Panda gave her and bangs on the doors, but gets no answer. Instead, Iris drinks all the bottles herself and makes her way through the petrified forest surrounding it. She eventually stumbles onto blond fellas with whom she parties it up before they help her find her way back to her bus.

Panda, meanwhile, has made his way to 1979 Paris with Iris's Time Scrunchy, which he has borrowed. He meets a classy lady who feels neglected by her husband, a "proper Count" who's out of town trying to be in several places at once. He hints that he hopes to seduce her.

Iris Wildthyme opines that the Penultimate Question is always "Where's the bar?", and that the Ultimate Question is "What's yours, lovey?". She isn't at all looking forward to becoming the Jane Fonda Iris with whom Panda is travelling, who might have a icer figure than her but seems to be "a proper moaner".

Iris reports that for her part, she is "at the Earth's core". There, she has met some reptile people who are upset that the Ape Primitives have stolen their planet, as well as a "dashing old gentleman" who has a faint resemblance to Peter Cushing. Noting that MIAOW seem intent on committing genocide on the reptile people, she ends her letter there.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The story is written as a series of letters between Iris and Panda, each of which details one or the other's involvement in events bearing a strong resemblance to a televised episode of Doctor Who.

  • While "at the Earth's core", Iris encounters reptile people angry at the apes who took over their planet (implied to be the Silurians), but also a
