    Is this similar to the fourth doctor time capsule?

    I found it to be EXACTLY as described and very worthwhile project for a worthy cause! 🙂

      yes it’s a worthwile cause, but the description leads me to think it’s a fuller book than just several lines per story.

      Actually, for a few stories, Lalla’s comments amount to such ‘memories’ as ‘Don’t remember much about this one’ or simply mentions an actor or two by name. The artwork – covers from the relevant Target novelisations and June Hudson’s costume designs are attractive but there’s very little text which I found rather disappointing.

    I bought this at a signing today. A nice book with some great pictures and anecdotes from Lalla. Very stylish but a little light on content, good for the money, however.

    i have this, bought it about a week ago… ok… it’s for charity, so fair enough, but it’s not very good. very few pages, and most of the comments from lalla ward are about 30 words long. including such things as “i don’t remember anything about this”. by all means buy it, but it’s not quite as the blurb leads you to beleive
