Wife in Space Gets Book Deal!

Watching Doctor Who on the television or on shiny DVD (or VHS if you’re old school) if you’re a fan can be an amazing experience. But when you involve another party, it can be a tricky business.

Adventures with the Wife in Space

If you’re viewing an episode with a fellow fan, you can have a critical debate about your favourite bit of the story and the other moments that you choose to forget. If you’re watching with someone who’s not a fan, it can be a treacherous experience indeed. They can scoff at the slightest thing and give no consideration to the magnitude of the storytelling that they’re witnessing.

So hats off to superfan Neil Perryman, who not only sat down with his wife to watch every episode of Doctor Who alongside her sceptical eye, but also chronicled the progression of their journey on his website

In a charming turn of events, the chronicles of their adventure together are to be published as a book, called Adventures with the Wife in Space, by Faber to mark Doctor Who’s fiftieth anniversary next year.

Perryman is very excited about the news and cannot wait for the release next year; his wife on the other hand is rather more worried about her views being expressed in a book:

I can’t believe it either. I’m terrified.

She needn’t worry, we’re sure that all of Doctor Who fandom will be very kind to her! You can pre-order Adventures with the Wife in Space: Life with Doctor Whofrom Amazon for £12.99.

What happens when an eight year old kid watches the 1993 repeat run of Planet of the Daleks? He pretty much ends up here writing about the show that grabbed hold of him and never let go!

    I am so glad that Kasterborous highlighted this website a few months ago. It really is worth spending the hours going and reading through it from the start. The updates have become one of the things I look forward to during the week and there’s a good community of regular posters on the comments section (and only the odd moron spoiling things).

    Neil and Sue deserve the book to do well and if it’s half as good as the blog is then it’ll be a cracking read. The blog regulars have a great deal of affection for the two of them – you only have to look at the outrage towards a certain Sgt Benton on Facebook as proof!
