“A man is the sum of his memories. A Time Lord even more so…”

Do you want to get your hands on what looks like it is going to be a VERY cool piece of nerd memorabilia?

Yes, of course you do!

How about a first edition, advance copy of Behind The Sofa, which is STRICTLY limited to a three hundred issue hardcover print run.

Behind The Sofa is a collection of over 100 celebrity memories of Doctor Who, compiled by Steve Berry – who decided to undertake the project in memory of Janet Berry, his mum who was a sufferer of Alzheimer’s – and illustrated by Ben Morris, in aid of Alzheimer’s Research UK.

100% of the profits from the sale of this book go to charity.

If altruism, and a chance to get your greedy eyes on anecdotes about the Doctor, isn’t enough I can give you a few more reasons to buy this book. Feast your (aforementioned greedy) eyes on some of the book’s contributors, who include:

Al Murray | Andy Nyman | Angellica Bell | Bill Oddie | Boyd Hilton | Charlie Brooker | Charlie Higson | Chris Chibnall | Chris Tarrant | Christopher H Bidmead | Conor McNicholas | David Quantick | Ed Petrie | Emma Freud | Gary Russell | Graham Duff | Hugh Bonneville | Iain Lee | Iain Morris | Ian McMillan | Jacqueline Rayner | Jason Arnopp | James Moran | Jason Flemyng | Jenny Colgan | Jeremy Dyson | Jon Culshaw | Jonathan Morris | Jonathan Ross | Josie Long | Julian Glover | Kim Lakin-Smith | Konnie Huq | Louise Mensch | Lynda Bellingham | Mal Young | Marc Platt | Mark Millar | Martina Cole | Michael Grade | Michael Legge | Mitch Benn | Neil Gaiman | Nev Fountain | Nicholas Parsons | Nicola Bryant | Paul Cornell | Paul Hartnoll | Paul Whitehouse | Philip Plait | Rhys Thomas | Richard Coles | Richard Herring | Rick Wakeman | Robin Ince | Roland Rat | Rufus Hound | Sarah Greene | Shaun Dingwall | Simon Guerrier | Stephen Gallagher | Stephen Merchant | Terrance Dicks | Toby Hadoke | Toby Young | Tom Harris | Tony Lee | Toyah Willcox | Tracy Ann Oberman | Wincey Willis | and many more…

C’mon, look at some of those names … I mean if Jonathan Ross, Mark Millar, and Neil Gaiman’s names don’t give you a nerdgasm then realise, ponder if you will, that it also has TOYAH WILCOX in it.

… ok, so that’s just me then :/

Jay says that he is a writer, martial artist, sketcher, and dreamer but mostly just a husband and father. Since getting married to the wonderful and patient woman of his dreams, and becoming a father (of two young boys), he has fallen into the category of 'lapsed nerd' as he is a former RPer, Live Role-Player, and comic book junkie. Science fiction and fantasy books are the staple of his shelves - both in terms of books and movies ... however, he's never seen Star Wars (any of them) but please don't hold that against him! He is currently trying to find a medical cure for the thing called sleep, as it is interferring with the thing he calls life. If you want to know more about him go to
