July Books 20) Dalek I Loved You, by Nick Griffiths

I enjoyed tremendously Griffiths' more recent book, Who Goes There?, so thought I should read his earlier memoir about growing up as a Doctor Who fan. It's amusing enough. Griffiths had a slightly but not very unusual childhood (much older parents, few close friends), and since then has had his fair share of career setbacks and failed relationships; he writes about it all with self-deprecating humour which could perhaps have been spiced up with a bit more passion. I imagine that people who like me and Griffiths were children in the UK in the mid-70s will enjoy this, but I think his other book has wider appeal.
