5.0 out of 5 stars Who girl
An excellent audio reading of Deborah Watlings life in acting and her family,from her early parts in dr who,danger uxb and films with Cliff Richards and David Essex/Ringo Starr through to now being retired.
Also comes with a dvd including convention footage and an interview.
A brilliant release well worth a listen of a very interesting life it's just a shame...

3.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing to the point of being childish
I was looking forward to reading this as she's had an azmazing career but the book comes across as if it's been written by a child, not two adults collaborating on a book. It's littered with exclamation marks as if she thinks what she's said has been funny / shocking / whatever but they just increase the feeling of her sounding all too simple.

4.0 out of 5 stars watlings words are a winner, 25 Jun. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Daddy's Girl: The Autobiography of Deborah Watling (Paperback)
The title 'Daddy's Girl' suggested a book describing a life of cosy familiarity. But that's not how it is at all.

Ms Watling tells a story that shows herself to be a capable, independant person with a remarkable level-head. In the course of the story she has to deal with an array of crackpots. including awkward fellow actors, a stalker, crazy audience members, irrational fans, etc.

But more than anything else this is a good, honest, account of the life of a jobbing actor, in the period 1965-95.

I read it quickly. Partly because it's written concisely but mainly because her story is both entertaining and true to life.
