Day 20 - Doctor Who Challenge

My Favourite/Least Favourite Non-Fiction Doctor Who Book

My Favourite

I'm going back to childhood here.  It has to be The Key to Time.  I pored over this for hour after hour as a youngster.  Though I have to admit I haven't read it for a long time.  It suited the fact hungry seeker of more DW I was then.  Doctor Who: The Companions also helped fill the gaps I was missing.

Least Favourite

This seems harsh.  I see all the good things about the book but it just doesn't interest me enough.  It's The Writer's Tale.  I think it's a wonderful resource for fans who want to know the nitty gritty of the new show.  I don't really care enough about RTD's era for this to pull me in.  For other writers out there I think it's a wonderful resource.  I'm not slagging this book off just saying it isn't for me.

Wow! That first book is somewhere in my loft, along with A Celebration (I preferred that one)

I enjoyed The Writer's Tale. It confirmed a lot of my prejudices but also enlightened me on a few things. It's not one I'll read a lot but the paperback edition, with 300 extra pages bringing it right up date was the better buy.
