Doctor Who: The Coming of the Terraphiles

Occasionally I would fine myself in the science fiction section of a bookshop. I would see "Dr Who" novels and I would wonder who actually buys them.

So imagine my surprise when I clicked on buy for Doctor Who: The Coming of the Terraphiles. In my defense, the book was written by the famous Science fiction author Michael Moorcock, whose books had shaped much of my adolescence. The book started out a bit rambly in the Moorcock Universe, but when Dr Who entered it calmed down settled into an entertaining story. Unfortunately, Moorcock likes the multiverse idea that as a physicist I really can't stand, as an idea, or even as a word.

Oh to be England next Saturday.
