Blue Box Boy: A Memoir of Doctor Who in four episodes

from What Noise Productions

A STRICTLY LIMITED NUMBER OF COPIES IS AVAILABLE SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR, MATTHEW WATERHOUSE.

As a boy Matthew Waterhouse loved Doctor Who: he watched all the episodes and read all the novels and comic strips. What starts as a heart-warming story - of a boy growing up with Doctor Who as his trusted friend, engaging the reader's memories and nostalgia that will be familiar to any Doctor Who fan - takes a sudden twist when he is thrust into an alien and adult world; cast as Doctor Who's youngest ever travelling companion for two of the series most inventive seasons. Matthews sense of wonder with his dream job and his love for the show are palpable; as is his shock at genuine hostilities between cast and crew members and considerable tensions on set, which are counterpointed with poignant reminders that he is just a boy, and still a fan, who finds himself in the absurd, comic world of minor celebrity. What follows is a story-by-story memoir of his time on the show, peppered with glimpses into Matthew's personal life, tales of conventions, DVD commentaries, and some revealing anecdotes about everyone from fellow actors to Doctor Whos more high-profile fans. This memoir holds nothing back: written with honesty, warmth, a rapier wit and a good dose self-depreciation, the book is essential reading for any Doctor Who fan. Finally, we get to hear Matthew's side of a story which has been told and embellished and imagined by fans and fellow actors for years. This affectionate and darkly humourous memoir is a record of what it was like to make Doctor Who, and to work for the BBC in early 80s, and is proof that you can take the actor out of Doctor Who, but you can never quite take Doctor Who out of the actor...
