Format: Paperback
I have to disclose an interest here ... I authored one of the essays that comprise this book.

As such I had a preview copy and spent a very entertaining few hours reading it. Naturally I turned to my contribtuion first (it representing my first - probably only - published work) to see what it looked like 'in real life' and having got over over the shock turned to 'the others.'

This book demonstrates two key things; firstly that Doctor Who is a robust and deep enough cultural text (if you'll excuse the slip into academic lingua franca) to take all kind of readings and interpretations and secondly that there is a huge gulf between US and UK appreciations of its meaning/s to LGBTQ persons.

That first point was not a surprise, but the latter one was a bit of a revelation. US appreciations cohere around specific fan reactions, whilst UK ones are more concerned with its place in the cultural pantheon. I suppose that not be surprising given that the programme has run for over 50 years in the UK as mainstream entertainment but was only broadcast in the US (on and off) from the 1980's... but it wasn't something I expected to emerge so robustly.

The book is a good read, by turns funny, touching, moving, perplexing and revealing. It shows how LGBTQ fans have adopted, adapted, ignored, parsed, interpreted and enjoyed the show and each contributor has a strong voice. Of particular revelation to me were a consideration of the show by a Trans author thinking about the parallels of 'regeneration' and transformation and a really sweet piece about a 'best friend'.

It's quite a wordly tome, but there are jokes, laughs and fun to be had.

I'm really grateful for having had the chance to contribute and I commend it to you as another way of looking at Doctor Who and what it means to so many people.

Engaging mix of coming-out stories and meta 7 Jun. 2013
By Ann - Published on
Format: Paperback
An engaging mix of coming-out stories and LGBTQ-focused meta. I particularly enjoyed Naamen Gobert Tilahun's "Hey Mickey, You're So Fine", a salute to one of my very favorite characters, and Susan Jane Bigelow's "Same Old Me, Different Face: Transition, Regeneration, and Change." As a straight ally, these essays gave me a lot to think about.

Format: Kindle Edition
This is a collection of personal essays. As such I didn't relate to every essay. It is however an excellent collection of essays showing the wide variety of responses to Dr. Who, by fans from all over the range of ages and genders, who happen to be queer. It is interesting to see the different perspectives people can have on the same source material.
Brilliant and engaging 16 July 2014
By Giulia Caruso - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book was a very interesting insight in the life of an old and multi-generational fandom. Every story was touching and exciting in their own way and I think everyone could find something resonating on a personal level. They are queer stories, but every sci-fi fan is queer itself, somehow, when loving something not-mainstream it's not easy to explain. A must read for every Doctor Who fan, it's full of details and trivia and old tales!
Varied, accessible and fun 16 July 2014

I really enjoyed Chicks Dig Time Lords, and picked this book up as a consequence. As with Chicks, it's fun, varied, and interesting. It's also nice in that it does not require absolute hard-core fandom to be legible. Very accessible.

Anyone with an interest in Doctor Who will enjoy this set of perspectives. 16 July 2014
By Jvstin - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
A media property approaching fifty years old has, just by the sheer fact of its longevity, invites interpretations, reflections and connections from its fans. In five decades, there is something for every stripe if you look hard enough and sometimes you find it without even looking that hard. You just need a slight change in perspective.

Thus, enter Queers Dig Time Lords, A Celebration of Doctor Who by the LGBTQ Fans Who Love It…the latest collection of essays on genre from Mad Norwegian Press.

Queers Dig Time Lords, is a spiritual successor to the Hugo Winning Chicks Dig Time Lords and the Chicks Unravel Time, and is in the same series as the Hugo-nominated Chicks Dig Comics and Whedonistas. Edited by Sigrid Ellis and Michael Damian Thomas, Queers Dig Time Lords collects over two dozen essays, stories and personal reminisces about Doctor Who from a queer perspective.

This collection has an impressive lineup. Tanya Huff writers about bisexuality on Doctor Who. Jennifer Pelland talks about her appreciation for Donna Noble and River Song. Melissa Scott filters her life and relationship with Lisa Barnett. Hal Duncan reveals how he came to love a show he once sneered at. Julia Rios analyzes a classic Key in Time episode in terms of the lesbian subtext that has been staring me in the face all the times I’ve seen it. And there is much, much more: analysis of the relationship of the Master and the Doctor; an analysis of Mickey, as seen through the lens of his alternate universe double Ricky, for example.

The essays and reflections can be extremely personal and moving as well. It should not have surprised me that Doctor Who would have such an effect on fans and be such a touchstone for their lives and self-identity. I was moved by some of these stories and reflections.

The only thing I can really say that the essay collection could be improved is that I was hoping for a little bit more analysis, perhaps. Don’t get me wrong; some of the very personal and touching reflections on Doctor Who made me laugh, cry and brought me to tears. I was hoping for more matter on the show itself, though. I also would have liked some more essays tying into the rich material that goes beyond the television episodes–the Big Finish audio episodes and the novels. One of the strengths of Doctor Who is that it is, really, a multimedia property. The very tight focus on the part of the participants on mainly just the episodes (and often just the newer ones) is a missed opportunity.

Even so, thanks to this book of essays, I learned to think of Doctor Who, its fans, and its themes in new and hitherto unconsidered ways. Queers Dig Time Lords, is strongly recommended for Doctor Who fans, especially those looking for personal reactions and connections to the program from a perspective that may be, but shouldn’t be, as alien and foreign to them as any Dalek, Ogron or Thal.
