Mark Campbell is a freelance writer and Doctor Who fan and has written for The Independent, Time Out, Sherlock Magazine and Crime Time. He is married with two children and lives in Plumstead, South East London. He is available for interview on 020 8317 0359 or mark.campbell10@virgin.net

If you wanted to choose Doctor Who for your specialist subject as a competitor in Mastermind, this is the book that you would want to read from cover to cover. It is crammed with facts and figures that would enable you to answer the most obscure of questions. Did you know for example the filming of Remembrance of the Daleks caused an IRA bomb alert. Had it ever crossed your mind that one of the props used in Dragonfire was in fact a dressed up sex doll? Or that water filled condoms were used as maggots in The Green Death? Dimensions in Time featured the cast of EastEnders. Now you know, and didn’t you always want to?

It has been suggested that leaving this book under your pillow at night, will enable its content to filter through to your memory by a process similar to osmosis. This is uncertain, but you may find a crick in your neck in the morning.

What is certain however is that this book will enrich your appreciation of the quaintly British institution, that is the world of Doctor Who.
