This is the autobiography of a really lovely and fascinating lady. Anneke is best remembered for her roles as Polly in Doctor Who, alongside William Hartnell and then Patrick Troughton and Strange Report with Anthony Quayle; but there is so much more to Anneke and she really has a fascinating tale to tell. I have only just started the book but find it hard to put down, I just wish I had the time to simply sit and read it right through, but I will get there eventually.

I am now up to Chapter 11 and have already had a few cries and some laughs. I am finding it a really great book and have difficulty putting it down - but sadly needs must. I love the way it is written, you really get the sense of it being someone's memories. Anneke doesn't go into long drawn out sentences on one subject.
The book is, of course, a must for Doctor Who fans, but this is the first volume of a two part autobiography and only very briefly touches on that small era in her life and should appeal to everyone.

I will report back once I have read it through completely. I would be very interested to read other people's comments.
