After having loved those volumes of the About Time series pertaining to the first two decades of DW, I had wished to find something equally absorbing on the subject, and was happy to find it in this. But where those books sometimes read (albeit in a brilliant and hilarious way) as a list of faults, here the authors focus on the the positive - and this they do with considerable insight and obvious love for the show. One of those books you really want to give the authors a hearty "Thank you" for writing.

Rob Shearman is an entertaining writer, as is Toby Hadoke. Their somewhat insane plan to watch all of the episodes of Dr Who (lost or otherwise) right from the very beginning over the space of a year is lovingly chronicled episode per episode in this first volume, which covers the 1960s. Further decades will be covered in two future volumes.

As well as brief descriptions of the episodes watched, the vignettes cover impressions, recollections & occasional everyday flotsam and jetsam in an easy-going style. Unless you're a diehard Who fan, you won't have seen all of the episodes discussed, so probably the best way to approach this book is to read it bit by bit after watching the stories you can get hold of on DVD. You won't necessarily agree with either author, but you should enjoy wallowing in fandom with them.

Roll on the next two volumes...

I have just finished reading this book. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was great to get the positive comments from the two authors, and it is written with gentle humour.

There are a couple of negative points for me.

Firstly the pair comment on the mistake of the production crew having the character of the Doctor referred to as "Doctor Who", and yet this is also a crime (punishable by use of the mind probe if I got my way!) that the authors of this book are guilty of (Robert Shearman states on page 319 "it was the merry contrast of seeing Doctor Who scolding his irresponsible little brother" - the most recent example I have read).

Secondly, the editing of the book is rather poor. There are numerous typos, jumbled up sentences and repeated words. Sometimes the meaning of a sentence is lost until you work out the order it should have been in, or delete the appropriate repeated word. An example from "The War Games" would be "...the writers allow every him to represent every other frightened Tommy..." (Page 317), which should read "...the writers allow him to represent every other frightened Tommy...". This is just the final one I remember, having been read most recently, but such errors crop up through out the book.

I realise that in this review I have concentrated more on the negative aspects of the book (which is at odds with the book itself), but I would still give it 5 out of 5 as it is a great read, just let down a little by poor editing. As with "Doctor Who" itself, it would be a shame to down-grade great writing because of shoddy production values.

Got this for Christmas. I haven't been able to put it down. Was even waking up early so I could read a bit before getting up! It's a great book to read from cover to cover and to dip into. It's a bit like The Time Team from DWM, but in more depth. The authors are characters. Made me laugh.

Not only do they write about watching (and listening) early DW, but they also talk about they're own memories of being a fan of DW they mention DW news when they were writing their reviews (e.g. Revelation of the Matt Smith!). This book as made me go back and re look at the 60's stories. My aim is to take the journey with them as they write each review.

Really recommend it. I really hope they will be writing the 1970's soon and get that out and then the 80's. (Message to authors: Please hurry up...I want to read more NOW!)

Go on, treat yourself!

(As you can tell, not great at writing reviews!)

Much more enjoyable reading than either the 'About Time' or 'TARDIS Eruditorum' series. Although I'm not altogether behind every opinion expressed at least the opinions are objective. I'm looking forward to the next volume... if it ever appears.
