Back in the day I won a copy of the audio book in Toms trivia contest. Let me tell you it's a great and funny story. I just happened on a wonderful piece of news on another Who type website. The book is being adapted for the stage. It's world premiere will be at The Lowry arts and entertainment venue at Salford Quays, Greater Manchester, this June.

I recently listened to the audiobook and Tom read superbly his book with a very eerie feel to it.
It sure feels very hard to like the protagonist Robert Caligari but the way he has been written by Tom was well done especially how Robert has his detestation of people and the denouement felt like something that Robert truly deserves.

The interview was very enjoyable.
It definitely resonated with me when Tom in writing the book says an influence to it was with adults thinking they know what children should be thinking. This resonated with me because from personal experience my life would have turned out differently if the principal of the high school I went to hadn’t said the wrong thing to me.
The Doctor Who bits in the interview was also quite interesting to listen to including recounting a line in Genesis of the Daleks.
