Reminder: Behind the Sofa Signing at Forbidden Planet

Don’t forget that in just 10 days’ time Forbidden Planet play host to some of the celebrity contributors from the Doctor Who celebrity memoir compendium Behind the Sofa!.

Signing at the London Megastore on Thursday 7th November from 6pm, will be:  Ben Aaronovitch, Sophie Aldred, Steve Berry, Richard Herring, Robin Ince, Katy Manning and Al Murray.

A life-long Who fan, Steve Berry decided to do something a little different to raise funds for Alzheimer’s Research UK. He began to interview celebrities, writers, actors asking for their earliest memories of the show that sent us cowering behind the sofa.

This revised and expanded edition includes over 30 new entries from people such as comedians Al Murray, Stephen Merchant, and Bill Oddie; actors Lynda Bellingham, Nicholas Parsons, and Rhys Thomas; writers Neil Gaiman, Jenny Colgan, Jonathan Ross and Charlie Brooker and politicians Louise Mensch and Tom Harris. In addition, there is input from a number of the writers, actors and production staff who were involved in creating the show!

New Doctor Who charity book Behind the Sofa

A collection for Alzheimer’s Research UK will be made at the event. Check the Forbidden Planet event page for full, up-to-the-minute details.

A hardcover edition of Behind the Sofa: Celebrity Memories of Doctor Who will be available at the event or can be pre-ordered from Forbidden Planet for £9.99.


Andrew has left Kasterborous. Any article that appears on the site past February 2016 claiming to be written by Andrew Reynolds has been done so maliciously and without the authors consent. The author does not condone gambling in any form and would not seek to publicise the industry through a children's television show.
