5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!, 11 Nov 2008
Who Goes There charts Nick's adventures around the UK in search of Doctor Who filming locations old and new. Armed with his 'fact packs' and his undying love of the show, Nick sets off to stand in the very spots where Tom Baker and Jon Pertwee and later David Tennant stood and held court as the Doctor.
Accompanying Nick on his bonkers tours are his beloved friends and family (I love them all!), aiding and abetting him as he soaks in the atmosphere of hallowed Who ground and occasionally trespasses to get to the epicentre of Wholand (he doesn't recommend that we the readers do this, if only for the nettle stings around the ankles!)
As an added bonus, we get to see the pictures… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliantly bonkers, 23 Jun 2008
Having read Dalek I Loved You, I was keen to read anything written by Nick Griffiths and ITFOHD didn't disappoint.
This book completely appealed to my sense of the absurd. It's a great adventure and the central character Alexander is nerdy yet charming. The situations and places he finds himself in and the characters he meets along the way come pouring out of the mind of one of the most imaginative and original writers I have come across in a long time.
Definitely buy this book. You will love it. It will make you feel good!

I don't imagine he knew what fun I would have following Nick's journey through his life so far via the gift of the best TV show ever made.
It's a kind of combination of autobiography and commentary. I wasn't sure what to expect; maybe I thought it would just be some Who anecdotes. There are a few in there and they are all brilliantly told and vital snippets worth knowing for any Who fan.
But it's mainly about Nick and his life. I cried with laughter in parts. I must have read three quarters of the book out… Read more
