It’s been promoted as ‘the greatest mash-up in the Whoniverse’. Writer and illustrator Adam Hargreaves explains how his Mr Men entered the world of Doctor Who…
Adam Hargreaves, writer and illustrator of the Dr Men books, visits the TARDIS set at Roath Lock Studios in 2017.
Doctor Who meets the world of the Mr Men.

On a sunny winter’s afternoon in London, DWM is having coffee with Adam Hargreaves. We’re at Blue Studios in Dalston to discuss the latest chapter in Adam’s career: the creation of the Doctor Who Mr Men. Or is it Dr Men? What should we be calling them?

“I tend to call them the Doctor Whos”, says Adam, “but I think Dr Men is the official title now.” Adam is the writer and illustrator of the Doctor Who-themed series of Mr Men books which BBC Children’s Books has been publishing since April 2017. Each title in the series features a Mr Men-style version of the different incarnations of the Doctor. There’s Dr First, Dr Second, Dr Third, Dr Fourth… you get the picture.

Dale the Dalek has trouble exterminating in Dr Fourth.
Sarah Jane and Dr Fourth beat a hasty retreat.

“I’m not sure where the initial idea came from”, says Adam, “but I do know there’s a website where fans have drawn Doctor Who characters as Mr Men, so I’m not sure whether that was the instigation. The Mr Men rights are owned by a company called Sanrio, so I think they kick-started it, approached the BBC and then they came to me and asked if I’d like to be involved.”
