"You can, if you're so inclined, follow Doctor Who's same journey back to the centre of national culture not through public events but through academic criticism."
I am a sucker for all things whovian and was enthusiastic at the prospect of delving into this treatise with the catchy name. For a speed reader like myself this particular work took what seemed like an age to finish. Perhaps there was a hole in the space time continuum? Perhaps I needed a longer coloured scarf? More likely, this book read like an exhaustive university essay, dull and colourless and completely unlike the addictive program it discusses.
The book seems to take a comprehensive view of the impact that fanzines and the like had on the development and re-birth of the show, and interesting concept but lacking something in delivery. Despite the funky Warhol like cover, this book put me to sleep on a number of occasions.
