The title just kind of says it all, doesn’t it?
If you are a Doctor Who fan… you know, own your own Psychic Paper, are not ashamed of your Cybermen action figures, ever wished you owned either a TARDIS or a long multi-colored scarf, actually went to the store as a child looking for Jelly Babies, regularly gets into discussions with younger fans on why Christopher Eccleston is not the best doctor, you use the phrase “Bad Wolf” in common conversation or you are acutely aware that the Borg are not nearly as bad-ass as the Daleks are… and even if you are not, and you just have a good sense of humor… this book is probably what you are looking for.
Tara O’ Shea, one of the co-editors, is one of the original fangirl bloggers and odds are favorable that you have already met her at at least one convention.
