I only wish I had written this brilliant memoir - Jackie and I are alike in so many ways, with so many similar experiences and memories. I've read many Doctor Who related diaries - this one is original and intellectual, and as a plus gives the reader an insight into the author's very grounded personality. I couldn't put the book down - indeed I wanted to climb in and join in! Ahem....Anyway, I'm not leaving my mistrust anywhere behind (read the book....) - excellent. Jackie - here's hoping I meet you at the bar at the next convention. The drinks are on me! x

Back in the nineties the first page I'd turn to each month in DWM would be the Jackie Jenkins page. When it first appeared I was unsure, but I was soon sucked in, and grew to love it very quickly. I was so sad when it went so this book is brilliant as it not only lets me revisit those days, but brings the story bang up to date! Fresh Jackie Jenkins goodness for the first time in many years. I could ask for no more.

Funny how sometimes the memory cheats and then sometimes it doesn't. This is the best book from Hirst Books yet, something that I held in great affection, a drop of normal life amongst my geeky monthly read at the tail end of the Nineties. When I thought of Jackie Jenkins I thought of fun, laughter, tears and Jarvis Cocker. My reading over the years often has a soundtrack and this book is a joy to read, old and new. Sling on some British guitar bands whilst you read and you'll see what I mean. Thanks Jackie, maybe a reunion with the faithful ought to be on the cards!

This is a really entertaining book. All the material is new to me as I wasn't buying DWM in the late 90's, but this is a book you just can't put down! Very funny indeed. Highly recommended.
