from the publisher's site:

In Chicks Digs Time Lords, a host of award-winning female novelists, academics and actresses come together to celebrate the phenomenon that is “Doctor Who,” discuss their inventive involvement with the show’s fandom and examine why they adore the series.

These essays will delight male and female readers alike by delving into the extraordinary aspects of being a female “Doctor Who” enthusiast. Essays include Carole Barrowman discussing what it was like to grow up with her brother John (including the fact that he’s still afraid of shop-window dummies), columnist Jackie Jenkins providing a Bridget Jones’ Diary-style memoir of working on “Doctor Who Magazine,” novelist Lloyd Rose analyzing Rose’s changes between the ninth and tenth Doctors and much more.

my thoughts:

I'm a new Who fan and I quickly became obsessed. :) Chicks Dig Time Lords is a fabulous collection of essays for any fan of Doctor Who. I laughed and learned from the women of Chicks Dig Time Lords. Some of their insights gave me a new perspective on one of my favorite shows.

I highly recommend these essays to anyone who enjoys Doctor Who. They are a lot of fun and well worth the read.
