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.

Doctor Who: The Secret Lives of Monsters was a reference book by Justin Richards published in 2014. Each of the recurring aliens is featured in separate chapters that reveal what we know from a collection of sources (some originally presented), from The Daleks airing in 1963/64 to Into the Dalek in 2014. Each chapter also includes a behind the scenes feature and a checklist of 'significant screen encounters'.

Publisher's summary Edit

“Ignorance is not bliss. It is the alien invader's greatest advantage. Tales of unearthly beings have long circulated among us, from legends of intelligent life on Earth before Homo Sapiens to conspiracy theories about what really happened at the Battle of Canary Wharf. But the truth is that alien life exists – and here, at last, is proof. Based on exclusive access to classified government files, 'The Secret Lives of Monsters' collects evidence that has been suppressed for centuries – notes from clandestine meetings, reports of eyewitness accounts, never-before-seen images and documents, secrets provided by a mysterious agent known only as 'the Doctor', and more. It reveals all we need to know about aliens who are already here, and provides essential information to survive future invasions. So don't panic. You are not weaponless. 'The Secret Lives of Monsters' will give you the greatest weapon of all: knowledge.”
