May Books 10) The Girl Who Loved Doctor Who, by Paul Cornell
This is one of this year's Hugo nominees - the first I have read in the Best Graphic Story category - and it is utterly lovely. The Eleventh Doctor slips through a gap between universes and finds himself in a world where "Doctor Who" is a TV show and he himself is portrayed by a bloke called Matt Smith. Among other things, he discovers fan-fiction:
The ExCeL, where the 50th anniversary weekend was celebrated last November, is depicted; given that this will also be the venue for Loncon 3 this August, is it the first Hugo-nominated work which actually features the place where the awards for its year are actually to be made?
I haven't yet read any of the other shortlisted works in this category, but the bar is set pretty high as far as I'm concerned.
