Publisher’s Summary

‘Grrrrr.’

The greatest book ever written.

Professor Reginald Tyler’s The True History of Planets was a twentieth-century classic; an epic of dwarves and swords and wizardry. And definitely no poodles. Or at least there weren’t when the Doctor read it.

Now it tells the true tale of how the Queen of the poodles was overthrown; it’s been made into a hit movie, and it’s going to cause a bloodbath on the Dog World -- unless the Doctor, Fitz and Anji (and assorted friends) can sort it all out.

The Doctor infiltrates the Smudgelings, Tyler’s elite Cambridge writing set of the early twentieth century; Fitz falls for flamboyant torch singer Brenda Soobie in sixties Las Vegas, and Anji experiences some very special effects in seventies Hollywood. Their intention is to prevent the movie from ever being made. But there is a shadowy figure present in all three time zones who is just as determined to see it completed... so the poodle revolution can begin.

Baskerville, the Afghan Hound and Rowlf (at the piano) sing "Mad Dogs and Englishmen" as the UK Spot in episode 216 of The Muppet Show.

The song was written by Coward as he drove to Hanoi to Saigon, and became a staple of Coward's cabaret act. The song is often quoted, with a Doctor Who novel taking its name from the song, as well as an album from Joe Cocker.
