    "Doctor Who fans will love this....."

    ...other people, not so much. I downloaded this for my nine year old son who is obsessed with all things Doctor Who. He enjoyed it very much, as did I. However, if you are not a real Doctor Who Fan it will probably mean very little to you, especially if you are not familiar with the "old" episodes. If you like me, grew up in the UK when the old shows were running, and are now enjoying the new series give this a try. It will give you an hour of nostalgia and make you laugh.

    Story
    "Eat your heart out Doctor Who fans."
    What did you love best about Moths Ate My 'Doctor Who' Scarf?

    This one made me cry. As a Doctor Who fan of some fifty years, I really identified with Poor old Toby and his heartfelt cry for his, seemingly, "lost" TV show. I had a similar experience to the author when my children fell in love with the new show, and we could sit together and have something in common for a change. My children where teenagers when the fell in love with David Tenant but better late than never.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The author's journey through life, with and without Doctor Who on the screen, and his musings on the way it affected his real life are absolutely delightful. Even non-fans can find the humanness, struggle and loss in this funny tear-jerker of a story about growing up and gaining and losing our dreams.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I had never heard of Toby Hadoke before this but I'll be looking out for his stuff in future.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The moment his son discovers his favourite show and they watch it together is amazingly moving.


    Any additional comments?

    Listen to this one! Listen to it now!!

    "Sentimental and sweet"

    Hadoake's show is as warm, fuzzy, familiar and nostalgic as classic Doctor Who itself. Every fan will recognize some aspect of this account of a lifelong love affair with the Doctor, whether it's the gentle ribbing of overly literal conventions for titling serials, being able to win a war of words with a bully by slyly quoting Tom Baker, or the unique mix of comfort and exhiliration stirred by the world's greatest theme tune (opinions may vary - other theme tunes are available!).



    Hadoake's ability to tie his own history with Doctor Who to the minor and major events in his life wonderfully demonstrates the impact a silly teatime sci fi show has had... not just on our humble narrator but for several generations of fans. The Doctor is 50 this year, and this personal, witty show does a terrific job of explaining how the show has managed to appeal to children and adults for half a century.



    If anyone asks why you're a fan of Doctor Who, you should get them to have a listen to this - because the chances are that Hadoake's story is pretty much your story too.
