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 it's not unabridged.

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.

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.
