Un-Conventional: 13 Years of Meeting the Stars of Doctor Who
At the age of 27, Karen Louise Hollis was living a conventional life as a married mother of four children in rural Lincolnshire. Then a trip to see Colin Baker in pantomine reawakened her love for Doctor Who.
In 1997, she met Colin Baker for the first time. Eager to see him again, she began travelling to conventions and events up and down the country. By the end of the year, not only did Colin Baker know her, but so did several other of the Doctor Who actors.
For the next thirteen years, it became a regular occurrence for her to meet the stars, listen to their interviews and get their autographs. But she did so much more besides
Proposing to Colin Baker
Becoming penpals with Anthony Ainley
Playing charades with John Nathan-Turner
Going on a canal trip with Katy Manning
Building a model K-9 for John Leeson
And all the time proving that being unconventional is the best way to be.
Written in a chatty, fun and light-hearted style, Un-Conventional should help to trigger fond memories for the regular convention goer. And for those that have never been to a Doctor Who event and wonder what all the fuss is about, this book will hopefully explain all!
