BLURB:

In which childhood memories of watching Doctor Who find themselves suddenly set in stone, like President Borusa at the end of The Five Doctors. Were the 80s really that long ago?


Stimulus Response:

When my copy of The Doctor & I arrived, I was horrified to find that someone had abridged my title; worse, that great chunks of the text had been removed or otherwise edited, without consultation and for no obvious reason. That's karma, I suppose, for the time I put Adele's song "Set Fire to the Rain" onto my wife's ipod as "Set Fire to Loraine" (can nobody else hear this?); or maybe for that outrageous claim that Tone Loc had three hit singles: "Wild Thing", "Funky Cold Medina", and a cover version of "The Pushbike Song". Or perhaps it's just because I identify as a Doctor Who fan, rather than a Whover (sounds like a vacuum cleaner) or Whovarian (dessert) or whatever it is the editors in their wisdom prefer. Who put the Re: in the TARDIS e-mail, eh?
