The author of Dalek I Loved You charts his travels through England and Wales tracking down locations used in Doctor Who**, both classic and new.**
Being an odd kind of show, Doctor Who's locations too are odd. This is no glamorous trip. Dungeness Nuclear Power Station, anyone? A flooded china clay pit in Cornwall? As he travels, so Nick Griffiths discovers another side to his well-trodden country, which is no less evocative. Then he goes to the pub.
As in his previous memoir Dalek I Loved You, the travel writing is backed up by Nick's childhood reminiscences and contemporary musings. A companion website offers photographs from the trip, a Google map of the locations, and details of the nearest pub. In this innovative way, readers are invited to follow in his footsteps. Who Goes There isn't just for Who fans, it's a very funny book for anyone who fancies a trip off the beaten path.
Praise for Dalek I Loved You
"A very funny book for anyone who grew up wearing Tom Baker underpants. I know I did."David Tennant
"An unadulterated nostalgia-fest written with fun, wit and love."Doctor Who Magazine
"He conjures up just how mind-blowing it was for an ordinary suburban kid to be transported to a realm of danger and rampant sci-fi imaginings."Financial Times
"If I am getting carried away, it is the fault of Griffiths's awfully charming memoir of boyhood and Doctor Who, with its deft evocations of eight-year-old invincibility and embarrassing school discos as well as arguments about Cybermen vs Autons or Jon Pertwee vs Tom Baker. Griffiths's chatty, self-deprecating style is disarming."The Guardian
