This affectionate sci-fi parody tells the 'true' story behind the triumphant return to prime time of television's most famous time-traveller after 14 years on Hiatus. In 2013, the medically-monikered maverick celebrated the 50th anniversary of his first visit to our primitive planet; and he has now secured world domination, something he spent five decades preventing numerous alien invaders from achieving. But a decade ago - his 40th anniversary - things were very different and his future very uncertain. So what 'really' happened to persuade the mighty BBC to bring him back? Why do all alien races speak perfect English - if, indeed, it is English? What is the real reason behind those missing episodes? How did anti-matter get its name? What really caused the extinction of the dinosaurs? And did a typo bring about the premature demise of the 10th Dr? All this and more is finally revealed in the 'true' account of Dr U Who's triumphant return to television - and it's about time!

Dr U Who - a parody based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
This is a pun-filled, nostalgic, story that fills the gap between the original Dr Who series, and the successful revival. To enjoy it at its best, you definitely need a decent knowledge of the show's entire history, but there are plenty of light-hearted chuckles if your only experience of Dr Who is post-2005. It's written in an easy, flowing, style, and lives up to its billing as an affectionate parody. It's not riotously hilarious, and won't have you clutching your sides, but there is plenty to raise a smile. The wobbly walls and rubber monster suits of the original series get looked at, as does the modern Who's more promiscuous, flirtacious times. An affectionate parody and enjoyable read.
