Eat your heart out Doctor Who fans.
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.
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.
I had never heard of Toby Hadoke before this but I'll be looking out for his stuff in future.
The moment his son discovers his favourite show and they watch it together is amazingly moving.
