Nick Griffiths travels England and Wales seeking the ghosts of Doctor Who, as he tracks down the show’s classic and new locations. Quarries and sand pits, impossibly quaint English villages, a cemetery in Wales, a railway bridge off the A312... Way off the tourist maps, yet such evocative sights, teeming with stories of piracy and power stations, church bells and Charles Dickens.
As his quest continues — warding off queue-jumping old biddies, tiptoeing gingerly outside the law, misplacing entire quarries and blagging his way into Jagger’s old pad — Nick offers childhood reminiscences and contemporary musings, and finds himself spellbound by these lesser-trodden green corners of Great Britain.
