Format: Paperback
If you want to read dirt dishing, then this is not for you, but if you want an honest book that is spread over a life and love for acting from TV's golden age to the present this book is a fascinating insight to how the profession has changed over the years. And if you read "Five Rounds Rapid" you have to read this.

Candid thoughts and reflection gives the book a voice that makes the reader feel like you are chatting with the author.

If you are a fan of Doctor Who you will love it and if you are someone who is interested in biographies of the world of the thespians you will adore it.

9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Mr. G. N. French on 2 Jun. 2006
Format: Paperback
An excellent and enjoyable read for any Doctor Who fan, but also for anyone who's interested in learning more about the realities of being a jobbing actor.

Nick Courtney has clearly lead a fascinating life and this is brought out well within the pages of this book. A definite improvement on Five Rounds Rapid, no doubt due to the influence of his co-author, Michael McManus.

It's a great holiday read, because you won't want to put it down to have to get on with the normal chores of daily life. I recommend it.

Format: Paperback
I first read a draft of this excellent book whilst on a long flight to Los Angles. By the time the flight had landed I had read this enthralling tail of an actors career. The added bonus being that I am a big Doctor Who fan and a particular fan of the great Mr.Courtney.
The book is superbly written and has an easy going style that makes it an essential read for anyone interested in the arts! I thoroughly recomend this book to all!
