Neil loves Sue. He also loves Doctor Who. But can he bring his two great loves together? And does he have the right?
Neil Perryman’s book is simply a delight – the genuinely funny and rather moving memoir of much more than an obsession. Anyone who has been a child, or tried to make a relationship work, or been embarrassed by a personal passion will find much to love. And if you know what a zeus plug is, or how to reverse its polarity, then you’ll be happy too. – A.L. Kennedy
This is a very, very funny book; touching too. – Jenny Colgan
Hysterically funny and also surprisingly moving, it’s a definitive celebration of how fantastic Doctor Who is, even when it’s a bit rubbish. – Joseph Lidster

First it was a blog, now the adventure continues in a book. From awkward years at school, terrified of giant insects, Daleks and rugby players, to even more awkward years as an adult, terrified of unexpected parenthood and being called a Whovian, here Neil – with a little help from Sue – tells the all too true story of life as a Doctor Who fan. Funny, honest and surprisingly brave, he also captures perfectly the joys and fears of sharing the thing you love with the people you love.
