There was much excitement this weekend over the fiftieth anniversary of Doctor Who, that quirky British time travel show that’s so very hard to explain. It seemed like a good to do an If You Like about Doctor Who– but for the fact that I’m drawing an (almost) blank. Only two books came to mind:
— Douglas Adams’s The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, and
— Charles Stross’s Laundry Files Novels
both of which mesh modern Britain with quirky paranormal and alien activity, with that same sort of tongue in cheek sense of humor.
Other than that, I’m having a hard time thinking of anything that fits the Doctor Who bill. What would you recommend for hard core Whovians?
