Whose Doctor? Reflections on a Time Lord
Philip Ashmore, Emilie Collyer, Adam Ford, George Ivanoff, LJ Maher, Ben McKenzie, Karen Pickering, John Richards, Jules Wilkinson, Aimee Rhodes.
Nine of Australia's finest authors examine
their relationship to Doctor Who from all angles. From letters begging
to be allowed to write for the show and poems about step-families
bonding over mutual love of the Doctor, to examinations of how New Who
subverts the male gaze and introductory lectures to aspiring companions,
this collection presents a range of unique and personal takes on
Britain's favourite and longest-running science fiction television show.
The pieces in this collection were originally performed live on stage in late Melbourne, Australia, in November 2013 as part of "Not Quite the Big Finish: An Evening of Doctor Who Spoken Word", a 50th Anniversary celebration of Doctor Who.
The authors in this collection are poets, comedians, scriptwriters, academics and authors, but above all, they are all, each in their own way, fans. As someone once said, "There's no wrong way to be a fan of Doctor Who." This collection proves that point beyond a doubt.
Contributing authors: Philip Ashmore, Emilie Collyer, Adam Ford, George Ivanoff, LJ Maher, Ben McKenzie, John Richards and Jules Wilkinson, with an introduction by Aimee Rhodes.
