A Trip Down Doctor Who Memory Lane!

Advantages: Lots of information included, great pictures, easy to read, represents the TV show well
Disadvantages: Suitable for a fan but not for everyone

I think its quite rare to have something in common with young children. When I say young children, I don't mean just anyone, but I'm thinking about shared likes with my son. He's what I would call a typical boy, always full of energy, has a strange fascin ...

Catherine Chanter: Well Well Well....

Advantages: Umm, nicely written
Disadvantages: A mish mash of a plot
