There's a horror movie called Alien? That’s really offensive. No wonder everyone keeps invading you!’

For much of our history humans have gazed up at the stars and asked the question: are we alone in the universe? The answer, of course, is no! The galaxy is teeming with life. Aliens populate every corner of the universe, and many have visited our humble little planet.

All the Strange, Strange Creatures is aliens. Aliens the Doctor has encountered on his adventures. Aliens he has not yet met. Aliens he hopes to never meet again. This supplement provides the Gamemaster with the details of just some of the alien races that the Doctor has encountered, from Daleks and Cybermen to the Vashta Nerada and the Skovox Blitzer.

As well as providing rules and background for each of the aliens included, this supplement also gets beneath the skin of each of them. What makes them tick? What do they do? How do you use them in your adventures? What sort of stories do they appear in? What else might you do with them? And how do you go about making up your own aliens?

I was so curious about this that I bought both books to check. TLDR: Less overlap than you'd think. Some stat blocks for popular monsters are the same, and "Creating Your Own Aliens" is almost identical, otherwise it's mostly different material. How useful the information provided will be to you is subjective.

"Strange Strange Creatures" actually has a lot less overlap with "Aliens & Creatures" than expected. Both books do have the really popular monsters (Daleks, Cybermen, Sontarans, Weeping Angels, etc), but other than stat blocks, the text is completely different (as far as I can tell). SSC seems to have been written in a way where it expects a large chunk of the audience to already have the stat blocks either from core rulebooks, Doctor Sourcebooks, or A&C, and so it focuses more on quality of information. While A&C mostly just talks about televised appearances of creatures and their stats, SSC adds a lot of information on how the creatures act and how...See more

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
