I myself was particularly moved by an homage to Jacqueline Hill (who played Barbara Wright in the very first few series of Doctor Who in the sixties) written down by a sixteen year old. And I was also pleasantly surprised that a much maligned story but one of my personal favourites 'Battle field' was given a very honourable mention. There even was a story written down by someone who had a lot of difficulty in using the written English language (personally I would have appreciated it if that piece had been edited some more, but I presume this was an outcome of discussions between the editor and this contributor). Another nice touch was the contribution of a six year old. What also was very good to see, was that all Doctors seem to be liked or loved, both from Classic and from the New Who series. Some were mentioned more than others, but all got some positive evaluations. Naturally Daleks and Cybermen were mentioned often, although not to the extent that I expected. In general I enjoyed the personal stories about the impact of Doctor Who on the contributors' lives the most.
But in fact anyone who enjoys Doctor Who will be able to find something in the book that will appeal to them. From the shy, nerdy and obsessed fan to the casual Doctor Who watcher, all will be able to find some reflection of one's own feelings in the book.
This is that book.
Many, many essays from fans of Doctor Who. Some of them short, all of them heart felt. The book really gives you an idea of what it's like to be a fan of the show and how deep people feel about it.
I do have a slight vested interest in that I have a short essay in the book but let me assure you that none of the authors of the book is getting paid for their work. It's a labour of love.
All proceeds (after costs of course) are going to Children In Need so you can buy this book, enjoy it, and know you're doing your bit for this wonderful charity.
I hope you enjoy it.
I know I did.
Like the show itself it is alternately heartbreaking, imaginative, needlessly grumpy, endearing and optimistic, and the writing quality is variable but the overwhelming enthusiasm is such that it would take a heart of stone to mind. The breadth and quality of writing, combined with the charitable donation to Children in Need your purchase will make, make this an ideal gift for a Doctor Who fan.
A second book may be published too, so if you read this and enjoy it you should follow through on this.

This is a great book about what it means to be a fan of the show. Each story has an essay and in each essay people explain why they love that story. Read morePublished 8 months ago by jamesm1970
