By Neil Perryman

In January 2011, Neil Perryman set out on an insane quest to make his spouse Sue watch each episode of the vintage sequence of Doctor Who from the very starting. Even those that didn't exist any further. And so, over the subsequent and part years, Sue gamely watched all of them. From William Hartnell and Tom Baker to Peter Davison and Paul McGann, the outcome used to be a wildly winning and hilariously revealing web publication known as Adventures with the spouse in Space.

But the journey maintains. right here Neil Perryman tells the all too real tale of Doctor Who fandom. humorous, sincere and strangely courageous, he additionally captures completely the thrill - and fears - of sharing the article you like with the folks you're keen on. Adventures With the spouse in area is, at its center, the tale of Doctor Who, and its lovers, noticeable in the course of the eyes of 2 humans - person who is familiar with nearly not anything concerning the programme and one other who understands means an excessive amount of.

'This is a really, very humorous publication; touching too.' Jenny Colgan
