Random Doctor Who Picture  

Cover of The Doctor Who Quiz Book by Nigel Robinson.  Foreword by John Nathan-Turner.  It has pixellated/space invaders style artwork showing a tardis, planets, stars and green blobs with yellow tails which look a bit like jelly fish but which I  suspect are supposed to be rockets.

Nigel Robinson, I have learned since joining LJ, got his start in publishing with a Tolkien Quiz Book in which enterprise he was aided and abetted by fredbassett. He went on to edit the Doctor Who book range. His wikipedia page peters out in the late 1990s though I believe Fred has managed to track him down since.

Hee! My copy is well-thumbed though I seem to have grown out of Doctor Who trivia somewhat. I was given a much heftier and more recent Doctor Who quiz book for Christmas which I have barely opened.

The novelty for me, as a child, was having a DW book regardless of content! I suspect I wouldn't be able to get as many answers right though, but I have a new weird not quite six degrees of separation.

I felt similarly when Fred first told me she had co-written a book with him.

I think I may have borrowed a copy of this from a friend. I'm fairly sure I had the Doctor Who Crossword Book by the same author, but that went missing at some point, which is very unlike me.

I suspect there is something about puzzle books that makes them feel even more ephemeral - particularly one like a crossword book where you need to fill in the answers.
