Customer Review

on 25 February 2009
A worthy follow up to Dalek I Loved You, Nick Griffiths has once again written a hugely enjoyable memoir focused around his love of Doctor Who.

There is a personal journey charted through the book which was written during a period of great change as Nick's wife becomes pregnant and within a cruely short span of time his mother passes away. Nick is on a quest to visit a number of iconic locations from The Police Box Show such as Stargroves Mansion (from Pyramids of Mars and Image of the Fendahl), Betchworth Quarry (Genesis of the Daleks/Deadly Assasin) and Aldbourne (from "The Daemons"), plus many more.

He talks about how he found the locations, looks for iconic images and specific places where a particular shot might have been filmed and considers the changes in the decades since Who went there. He is funny, charming and occasionally informative with the odd spoucon of historical information on the place he's visiting and a great interest in cider!

He revisits the story on video or DVD before the trip and shares the occasional observation about the old show from his son a confirmed new Who fan. The stories considered are mostly from classic Who with a finale dedicated to a few stories from the new version.

The locations come alive much more than in drier books like "Travels Without the Tardis" or magazine location features. Recommended for classic who fans of the '70's vintage, there are details within the book of a companion website with photos which is well worth a look.
