The Doctor Who Club of Australia has published a book marking forty years since the formation of the club.

Zerinza celebrates 40 years of the club and features articles by every President, past and present, from across the club’s entire history plus a number of articles and interviews about specific club activities and events.

It also celebrates text Who, 2016 having been a year with less content on TV and more on book shelves. This includes an exclusive interview with Doctor Who actor and Second Doctor son Michael Troughton, who discusses writing his father’s biography. David J Howe talks about co-writing Jon Pertwee’s final memoir, Colin West remembers illustrating Tom Baker’s poetry and Peter Davison describes writing the script for the Five(ish) Doctor’s Reboot.

There is also a rare interview transcript of Nicholas Courtney and Katy Manning from the first Whovention back in 1990, plus comics, art, articles, and fiction!
