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.

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!!
