Articles by Alasdair Shaw

Alasdair Shaw dabbled in Who throughout the 80s, but didn’t really get into it properly until 1989. His sense of timing has not improved over the years. He’s a third generation Who fan as well as a father of three.

Well they’re here at last! “What’s that?” you ask like some elderly relative visiting at Christmas: “What’s here?” The reprints of Lance Parkin’s BBC Books contributions, that’s what. Don’t tell me you’ve missed the almost constant coverage they’ve received from Ebury books and Auntie? You have? Well that might just be because there has been…
