Join the ‘Doctor Who’ party behind the sofa and help Alzheimer’s research
For those of you still looking for a last minute Christmas present for the Doctor Who fan in your life then look no further. Behind the Sofa: Celebrity memories of Doctor Who by Steve Berry is a compilation of anecdotes from famous names about their scariest Who moments.
From television presenter Jonathan Ross to former politician Louise Mensch to comedian Stephen Merchant and columnist Charlie Brooker, celebrities from across the spectrum share their childhood memories of the longest running science fiction programme in the world.
Along with making a great present for Doctor Who fans, all of the profits from the sales will go to Alzheimer’s Research UK, to help preserve the memories of future generations.
Writer Berry put the book together over the course of four years and says: “I always had a sneaking suspicion that everyone in the world loves Doctor Who. Now I have proof! If I could get all the famous names who contributed to this book into one room, it would be the maddest Doctor Who party ever.”
“Until then, their favourite memories of the programme are preserved for all to see. Plus, everyone who buys a copy will be helping to give hope to the 820,000 people in the UK living with dementia today.”
