About this book
In Running Through Corridors, two Doctor Who lovers of old - Robert Shearman and Toby Hadoke - embark on an epic quest of friendship: spend the gap year of 2009 (when Doctor Who consisted of a handful of specials rather than a full season) re-watching the whole of Who two episodes a day, every day, from the show's start in 1963 and ending with David Tennant's swan song on New Year's, 2010.This three-volume series contains Shearman and Hadoke's diary of that experience - a grand opus of their wry observations about the show, their desire to see the good in every story, and their chronicle of the real-life changes to Who in that year.With this book, Who fans will feel that they're watching along with Shearman (World Fantasy Award winner, Hugo Award nominee and writer on the new Doctor Who) and Hadoke (renowned stage performer for his one-man comedy show, Moths Ate My Doctor Who Scarf) as they make their grand journey through the world's most wonderful and longest-running drama series.
The Marathon Watch pits treachery, deceit, and betrayal against the military traditions of duty, honor, and loyalty.
About this book
Not a bedtime read - you won't turn off the light until you have finished! - Islander I could almost feel the thunderous power of the steam turbines coming out of my Kindle.- Peter D. Woodward An excellent book. A switchback story, lots of plot twists. One of those difficult to put down reads. - Elleson More I can still smell bearing-burnt oil from the engine room, and taste salt water on my lips. Without a doubt Laswell s dramatic closing scene is one of the most powerful I have experienced in a very long time. Michael Carrier A book for fans of Clancy, Follett, Reeman, and Poyer. The Marathon Watch pits treachery, deceit, and betrayal against naval traditions of duty, honor, and loyalty. At the center of this struggle is the oldest US naval destroyer, the USS Farnley. The Chief of Naval operations steps in to rescue the Farnley and bring an unscrupulous admiral to justice, but disaster strikes. Guided by the canons of tradition, the Farnley's courageous captain and crew disobey the admiral's orders. In a life-or-death struggle, the Farnley sails in harm's way to save the life of a single man and the future of the US Navy. If not for the battery life of my iPad, I would have finished this book in one long sitting. Julia Moran Martz The author . . . creates a real authenticity to the writing, reminiscent of Douglas Reeman and David Poyer. - An Amazon Reader It was great to read a book able to make the traditions and culture of the US Navy come to life and have meaning. - Andrea Luhman"
