BBC Books have announced its plans for Doctor Who publications over the coming months:

BBC Books (Credit: BBC/Random House)To celebrate the return of Alex Kingston’s popular character in the recent Christmas special, BBC Books will publish The Legends of Song: a collection of stories from River Song’s diary, and the first full-length book featuring River to be published by BBC Books. It will be released in e-format in February, followed by a hardback edition in June.

The Whoniverse: The Untold History of the Worlds of Doctor Who will be published in October. It is "a never-before-seen history of the Human Race", including "untold histories of other planets and lifeforms". The book will be packed with full-colour illustrations, maps, charts and photography.

The 10th doctor, David Tennant, reappears in Jenny Colgan’s latest novel In the Blood, due May. Tying in with audio innovations from Big Finish, BBC Books hopes the book will allow fans to "enjoy Tennant’s comeback" in as many formats as possible.

A host of Doctor Who figures, facts, dates and stats will meanwhile be uncovered in Doctor Who: 365 Days of Memorable Moments and Impossible Things, to be released in March. It is described as "a beautifully finished, day-by-day assortment of drama, humour, fright and fun from over 50 years of the shows history". Whographica, released in September, also features visualisations and infographics that explore the universe of the show "for new and long-term fans".

Lastly, BBC Books is publishing Doctor Who: The Official Cookbook in August. The "fun, family-oriented cookbook" is packed full of simple, achievable recipes that are both savoury and sweet - ranging from "Gingerbread Doctors" to a "Pandorica to a Dalek Cake".
