Well, I was looking more for a book about fandom: what makes a fan, that sort of thing. This isn't it. Parts of it are marginally interesting - I do like Henry Jenkins' work with Star Trek - but overall, media theory is not my cup of tea and there's no better way to make Doctor Who boring than discussing it with sociology students.

Maybe I'll finish it before it's due back, or maybe I'll just pick through the interesting bits and leave the rest for another time.
