bookshelves: essays, doctor-who

Most of the pieces in this collection deal with growing up with the Doctor (or Captain Jack, who features a whole lot in the first part of the book). There's nothing wrong with writing an essay as your personal life story, but when they make up the majority of your book they all tend to become very similar after a while, variations on the same riff. I would've liked more variety, both in content and in form.

I especially liked "A kiss from Romana" and "Hey Mickey, you're so fine". The latter is a very good take on the character of the same name; while he's hardly my favourite, this piece did make me reconsider Mickey a lot, also considering some of the writing/editorial choices made behind the camera.
