Earth Station Who

ESWlogoI just recorded a very enjoyable podcast with the great folks at Earth Station Who, a Doctor Who podcast that’s part of the Earth Station One network. I got to talk a little about my book, Doctor Who’s Greatest Hits, and also about one of my all-time favorite Who stories, “The Seeds of Doom.” As soon as the episode is available online I will post a link here. Readers should definitely check out Earth Station One and its affiliate shows. Or come meet them at a local convention!

Doctor Who’s Greatest Hits: An Unauthorized Guide to the Best Stories From Time and Space

Author R. Alan Siler has put together a list of the top 55 Doctor Who television stories of all time. From Autons to Zygons, from William Hartnell to Peter Capaldi, this book has something for everyone. As a convention staffer and orgnanizer, Siler is often asked questions like “What’s the best Doctor Who story / episode ever?” “I’m new to Doctor Who, where should I start?” “I want a good introduction to each of the Doctors . . . what’s the best ones to start with?” Here are the answers to those questions. These are the best of the Doctor’s televised adventures, with broadcast information, reviews and behind-the-scenes data on each one. A great book for beginners, but there’s something for the longtime fan as well.

The book will be debuting at DragonCon 2015 (September 4-7).
