Inhaltsangabe zu "Dalek I Loved You: Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special Edition"

A Special Edition ebook to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who, featuring a host of new images, interviews and updated text...

Nick Griffiths watched his first Doctor Who aged four and a bit. He would have hidden behind the sofa but it was back against the wall and his parents didn't let him move furniture so he hid behind a cushion instead. He's since been told by his mum and dad that they didn't have a sofa only armchairs. So this book should really be called Behind the Armchair, but that didn't sound right. And so began a life long obsession. When Doctor Who started getting rubbish (after Tom Baker basically) he nearly escaped into the world of music and girls until he discovered someone selling tapes of old episodes in the small ads and that was that again. Only in the last few years has an anti-social obsession become something he can earn a living from as a journalist and happily this coincided with Doctor Who getting good again. Plus he has a son now so he can claim he's watching it for him. Oh and his son's called Dylan not Gallifrey or Davros.

"A very funny book for anyone who grew up wearing Tom Baker underpants. I know I did." DAVID TENNANT

"An unadulterated nostalgia-fest written with fun, wit and love. I'm a number of years younger than Griffiths and of a different sex, but I've rarely read anything that so reflects my own opinions and feelings about the series and more besides. If friends, parents and partners don't quite comprehend a fan's love for the Doctor, this is the book that might help them get there." DR WHO MAGAZINE

"He conjures up just how mind-blowing it was for an ordinary suburban kid to be transported to a realm of danger and rampant sci-fi imaginings." FINANCIAL TIMES

"If I am getting carried away, it is the fault of Griffiths's awfully charming memoir of boyhood and Doctor Who, with its deft evocations of eight-year-old invincibility and embarrassing school discos as well as arguments about Cybermen vs Autons or Jon Pertwee vs Tom Baker. Griffiths's chatty, self-deprecating style is disarming..." THE GUARDIAN

"Popbitch's favourite new memoir." POPBITCH

"... he writes with such wit and warmth, and a strong line in observational humour." THE DAILY MAIL

"... the book Nick Hornby would have written if he'd spent his life obsessing over Doctor Who rather than footie. Nostalgic and funny." THE MAIL ON SUNDAY
