"One of the oddities of Doctor Who is that you hear so much about what the fans think, and so little from the other 100 percent of the audience (my stats are clinically accurate.) So thank God for a couple who put their love on the line to set the record straight. This is the story of a fan boy who inflicts every episode ever made of Doctor Who on his marriage. Or to put it another way, this is the story of someone with a proper love and understanding of Doctor Who, trying to explain it to her husband." (Steven Moffat). Neil loves Sue. He also loves Doctor Who. But can he bring his two great loves together? In January 2011, Neil Perryman set out on an insane quest to make his wife Sue watch every episode of the classic series of Doctor Who from the very beginning. Even the ones that didn't exist any more. And so, over the next two and half years, Sue gamely watched them all. From William Hartnell and Tom Baker to Peter Davison and Paul McGann, the result was a wildly successful and hilariously revealing blog called Adventures with the Wife in Space. But the adventure continues. Here Neil Perryman tells the all too true story of Doctor Who fandom. Funny, honest and surprisingly brave, he also captures perfectly the joys - and fears - of sharing the thing you love with the people you love. Adventures With the Wife in Space is, at its heart, the story of Doctor Who, and its fans, seen through the eyes of two people - one who knows almost nothing about the programme and another who knows way too much. "This is a very, very funny book; touching too." (Jenny Colgan).
