Despite being written by his granddaughter the biography paints a very realistic portrait of this complicated man. Jessica talks about both the good and bad parts of her grandfather's character. This book really does give you a glimpse into this interesting man. Unlike a lot of actor's biographies this doesn't dwell entirely on his career but balances out his acting with his personal life. It is full of stories from the people who worked with him or were his friends.
Now I've finished the audio version I'm looking forward to reading the hard cover, especially seeing all the old photos. This book has been very expensive for the past decade and it is great that fantom films have republished it with a new edition. For those of you who watched An Adventure in Space and Time I highly recommend this for learning the real story about the man who played the first Doctor.
Told through the eyes of granddaughter Jessica Carney to begin with and then from diary logs of William & Heather Hartnell and past friends/Actors read by former dr who assistant Anneke Wills.
It's an all round excellent telling of a great past actor lovingly remembered as doctor who,it's just a shame it's abridged as it leaves you wanting to know more about the man.
Will worth the purchase a brilliant listen.
Anneke Wills reads it with such warmth it was a delight to listen to even if you are not a Hartnell fan. A fascinating life and although it explores Williams grumpier side it is shared with affection and I found the story touching.
Would highly recommend. Would be great for a long car journey!
