This review is from: Who Goes There (Paperback)
Who Goes There charts Nick's adventures around the UK in search of Doctor Who filming locations old and new. Armed with his 'fact packs' and his undying love of the show, Nick sets off to stand in the very spots where Tom Baker and Jon Pertwee and later David Tennant stood and held court as the Doctor.
Accompanying Nick on his bonkers tours are his beloved friends and family (I love them all!), aiding and abetting him as he soaks in the atmosphere of hallowed Who ground and occasionally trespasses to get to the epicentre of Wholand (he doesn't recommend that we the readers do this, if only for the nettle stings around the ankles!)
As an added bonus, we get to see the pictures taken on Nick's jaunts online (the scared at Autons face a particular fave of mine!). This adds a lovely touch and it's hard not to feel you've been there too. (I have, in some cases, for I am as sad as Nick!)
Running through the book of japes are some poignant moments that Nick shares about his family, and I must admit to shedding some tears of sadness alongside those of joy and hilarity.
Who Goes there ticks all the right boxes for me. It's definitely fuelled my desire to go to more Dr Who locations.
You don't have to be a Who nutter to thoroughly enjoy this book, but it helps!
