As a young boy growing up in the 1980s, Paul Magrs was completely besotted by all things Doctor Who. Locked away in their own happy little world, he and his neighbourhood friend, Robert, spent their days filling their minds with the Doctor’s intergalactic time travelling adventures.
Their journey through the hardships of adolescence is just beginning and there’s no doubt in Paul’s mind that their idol is coming along for the ride.
And yet, to his horror, it seems that Robert has other things on his mind. All of a sudden intent to yield to the pressing distractions of girls, growth and Genesis, Paul finds that his best friend is beginning to move on from their hero over whom they shared such a strong bond. With the pressure to grow up pressed upon him from all sides, is it time for Paul to abandon the only thing that seems to make sense?
