<< Who is the Doctor - Toronto launch event - Saturday March 24   |   Main   |   Talking About Our Book >>

  • We have launch (party!)
  • The Who is the Doctor launch at Bakka-Phoenix Books in Toronto last Saturday exceeded all expectations. We had at least 70 people there at the start, and more people came afterward. Given our estimates were around 30-40 people, we doubled our expectations. It was both flattering and humbling that so many people came out.

    Our intrepid photographers (aka my Dad and my wife Julie) took quite a few great photos. Here’s some of them:

    ECW made some awesome posters and we had a lovely display greeting us outside…

    Here we are, ready and waiting…

    Robert and I answer the hard questions at the Q and A. I think this one was “how did you write the book?” or “Who was your favourite Doctor?”

    I do a reading from my review of “Turn Left”...

    And the signing commences!

    It’s busy at Bakka… Somewhere in that crowd is my High School English teacher!

    And busy around the signing table…

    I’m shocked… SHOCKED!!!... to see Richard Salter whom I haven’t seen in several years.

    Robert and myself with Scott Clarke, whom I dedicated my half of the book.

    The two authors and their friends who stuck around to the bitter end! (We’re holding the Doctor Who mugs that Julie gave us as a present for the launch!)

    It was an amazing experience. One I’ll never forget and I’m sure one Robert won’t forget either. Thanks so much to everyone who came out!

    Yes, it was delightful. And so awesome to see so many friends, both new and old. We should launch books more often! (Oh wait, we will be: Ottawa on May 5th and New York on May 27.)
