Looking for Sarah Jane Smith?

Dave Franklin’s acerbic Doctor Who-inspired debut Looking for Sarah Jane Smith is now available as an ebook – so you can view the Kasterborous dubbed ‘post-modern laddist cult classic’ with sparkling back-lit wonder.

The novel/ebook thingy sees Marty, trapped in a Welsh nightmare of a terrible job and failing love-life, fleeing his idiotic mates,  the loveable loser John and the ultra-macho Wasp Boy and upping sticks to Australia – with dreams of meeting  an exquisite girl like his Doctor Who heroine, Sarah Jane Smith.

While not in any means a Doctor Who book, “Looking for Sarah Jane Smith” is a good example of how Doctor Who has infiltrated the national psyche, and has previously been available both as a single book and as part of Franklin’s collection, “Manic Streets of Perth”.

Franklin, an ex-pat himself, described the novel as “a bleak, vicious comedy” with the blurb calling for readers who suspects life is a bit rubbish.

You can also read the first chapter on at Baby Ice Dog Press now.

Pick up a copy from Amazon for just four hundred and sixty pence.

About the Author

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
