'This is a very, very funny book; touching too.' Jenny Colgan

Neil loves Sue. He also loves Doctor Who. But can he bring his two great loves together? In January 2011, Neil Perryman set out on an insane quest to make his wife Sue watch every episode of the classic series of Doctor Who from the very beginning. Even the ones that didn't exist any more. And so, over the next two and half years, Sue gamely watched them all. The result was a wildly successful and hilariously revealing blog called Adventures with the Wife in Space.

But the adventure continues. Here Neil tells the all too true story of life as a Doctor Who fan. Funny, honest and surprisingly brave, he also captures perfectly the joys - and fears - of sharing the thing you love with the people you love. Adventures With the Wife in Space is, at its heart, the story of Doctor Who, and its fans, seen through the eyes of two people - one who knows almost nothing about the programme and another who knows way too much.

About the Author

Neil Perryman fell in love with Doctor Who when he was 3 years old and 40 years later, he still can't stop thinking about it. Neil has also been responsible for a number of popular websites over the last 10 years, including 'Adventures with the Wife in Space', 'Tachyon TV' and 'Behind the Sofa' (which is still listed under the Guardian's TV & Radio blog's Site We Like, even though it hasn't been updated for two and a half years).

Industry Reviews

All Doctor Who fans and their spouses should buy this book. It will save them years of expensive therapy. -- Matthew Sweet Affectionate, accurate and funny - you will want to be their friend. -- Toby Hadoke, creator of Moths Ate My Doctor Who Scarf Hysterically funny and also surprisingly moving, it's a definitive celebration of how fantastic Doctor Who is, even when it's a bit rubbish. -- Joseph Lidster, writer of Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures Neil Perryman's book is simply a delight - the genuinely funny and rather moving memoir of much more than an obsession. Anyone who has been a child, or tried to make a relationship work, or been embarrassed by a personal passion will find much to love. And if you know what a zeus plug is, or how to reverse its polarity, then you'll be happy, too. -- A L Kennedy If ever a TV programme needed the **** taken out of it lovingly, it was Doctor Who. Now the show has its Siskel and Ebert, its Statler and Waldorf, its Beavis and Butthead. Even non-Whovians will love this book. I certainly did. -- Louis Barfe, author of 'Turned Out Nice Again: The Story of British Light Entertainment'
