What the readers say…
“Well Done! Another useful book to fill a real gap. I hope the fans will go for it big.”
“Your book is most impressive…It is bound to appeal to Dr Who fans but it should also fill a gap in the market for those who want back stage stories or are interested in special effects.”
“This is a book that I’m proud to be a part of.”
“The book is a delight, you have really captured the feel of the FX department of the 70’s. What a gem for those Doctor Who fans out there, a mine of information & insight.”
Congratulations, the book looks really good!
“The book’s really good, thanks for the six pages on me, I didn’t know I had done so much!”
“You seem to hav gathered a wealth of effects stories, some of which I’ve heard in the bar over the years, but several which were new to me. Fascinating stuff.”

Magazines & readers comments
“The Doctor’s Effect is an amazing collection of interviews dedicated to those people that every Doctor Who fan secretly wanted to be – the ones who made the monsters, the models and the explosions. A wonderful reference work that I’ve consulted so often over the years that I’ve had to buy a second copy as I wore the original one out!”

“Many of those interviewed are new – and so too are their stories, a rare thing these days.”
