Dreams of Empire is a BBC Books original novel written by Justin Richards and based on the long-running British science fiction television series Doctor Who. It features the Second Doctor, Victoria and Jamie.

Dreams of Empire was re-released in 2013 for the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who.


The Doctor and his companions land in what seems to be a medieval castle. In reality, it is a fortress/prison, the last stronghold for military forces. The TARDIS crew quickly finds itself in danger from outside threats and inside, not the least of which is seemingly self-animating suits of armor.
