I cannot imagine becoming a Who fan from The Movie, so from that perspective Child Out of Time was an interesting read, written by someone who was a child in the 90’s and what a strange time that was to be a Who fan. With comedy sketches, The Movie, and having to look backwards in terms of finding new Who material, such as Target paperbacks, VHS tapes, repeats on TV and non-fiction books. At Hayden Gribble’s first Who convention, he met Deborah and Jack Watling. Not at all surprised to read ‘with a baby in the room and SATS exams to prepare for, The Invasion of Time was a catalyst to the ending of my love affair with Doctor Who.’ Because The Invasion of Time is a, uh, mixed bag. Although am I the only person who likes the appearance of the tin foil Vardans?
I like to read accounts of how people became fans of the show and what it means to them, Child Out of Time was very enjoyable to read.
