Great idea, but all went a bit Bonnie Langford

Nick, you're supposed to be a feverish, dribbling, Doctor Who nerd, so saying that you can't remember why Pertwee's Doctor was stuck on earth during one of your location visits is blasphemy (and would have taken five seconds to look up on Wikipedia).
And the fact you didn't even bother to look at the direction-pointing Dungeness DVD extras before visiting the Axon site, then admitting to it at the end of the chapter, too (when you weren't even sure of being in any of the right places). Well, you just deserve to be EXTERMINATED!!!!!!!
I was looking forward to reading this book, which really was a massive opportunity for the writer, but he was obviously never that serious about the book materialising into our space and time, which is blatantly clear from the large time gap between chapters.
There are some smile-raising incidents, but there are unforgivable acts of laziness on the writer's part, which are a complete turn-off for a reader trying to engage with the author.
And the continued reference to pictures in the book, which can only been seen on a website was more annoying than Adric. The publishers should have shaken the giant Menoptra-sized moths from their wallets and put pictures in the book. Great idea, poor effort!
P.S. Did you write a book called 'Dalek I Loved You'? You never mentioned it.
