This is a work of non-fiction.

Unlike other fictional universes, the Doctor Who universe is created solely by fiction. To us, this is not a valid source. Information from this source can only be used in "behind the scenes" sections, or on pages about real world topics.

The Puzzle Book was published by Magnet Books, the paperback division of Methuen Children's Books.

Publisher's summary Edit

Pit your wits against the Doctor and his assistant, Peri, in this space-age super-quiz. They are out to puzzle you with inter-planetary posers, mindbenders, brainteasers and mysteries.

So switch on — and all systems go!

This is the fifth Dr Who Quiz Book by Michael Holt who has written over 100 books, mostly for children. He has also appeared on his own "Mathemagical" show on BBC Television.

Subject matter Edit

  • A series of self-contained puzzles each with a prose narration and featuring the Doctor and Peri (and for some K9 !)
