More About the Author

"Guy Adams is either barking mad or a genius, I haven't decided. His truly fantastic debut is like being caught in a theme park with a killer clown - fun, adventure, the odd cream pie - and a sharp knife when you're not looking." - Mark Chadbourn

Guy Adams is the author of the best-selling Rules of Modern Policing: 1973 Edition, a spoof police manual 'written by' DCI Gene Hunt of Life On Mars. Published by Transworld, it has sold over 120,000 copies and led to two sequels: The Future of Modern Policing: 1981 Edition and The Wit and Wisdom of Gene Hunt. Guy has also written a two-volume series companion to the show, published by Simon & Schuster; a Torchwood novel, The House That Jack Built, for BBC Books; and The Case Notes of Sherlock Holmes, a fictional facsimile of a scrapbook kept by Doctor John Watson. This was published in 2009 by Carlton Books in association with the Estate of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the writer's birth. Guy is also the author of the fantasy novels The World House and its sequel Restoration, published by Angry Robot.

I love the quality of this book. The weight and feel of it are first class and physically it is a beautiful book.

Now for what's inside.

I love the intimate nature of the behind the scene insights the book has. I've read other companion books and they usually have a textbook feel about them, this is what the show is about and here is the lesson on how we got there. Like the boring high school teacher who taught Math. This book is like the crazy history teacher who dressed up like Napoleon to teach the chapter on the Battle of Waterloo. It has the fan feeling about it, like they actually watched the show with the rest of us and being fans themselves, knew what a fan would want.

I love the behind the scene pictures, especially the class picture with everyone draped around the Cortina at the end of filming the last episode.

I love the fact that we get complete music listings for every episode because now I can finally finish my LoM Mix CD.

I love the "Interviews" with all the characters from the show. I think my favorite one is DC Skelton's.

Simply put, I love everything about this book except for the fact that I will probably have to buy a second one so that I can keep one of them perfect and manhandle the second one to death.

Full marks Guy and Lee. Bring on the next one.

This book is everything that 'Spooks - Behind The Scenes' isn't. It's clear here that the writer and designer know and love the series and have put a lot of effort in. Not only is there background on the production, but there is even an attempt to flesh out the characters even more with elements of fiction, like stories in an tv annual.

Speaking of which, the design of the book is fantastic. The idea of making the bookcover beneath the dust-jacket look like a typical tv annual from 1973 is an inspired one, and perfectly in keeping with the style and spirit of the show.

I can't recommend it highly enough.

We love this series. It was great watching it on TV and I was worried about watching it again so soon (two years), but it is like we were watching it for the first time. There were so many things we missed the first time through. The picture, sound and subtitles are great.
