Simon Taylor

Simon is a young collector (35) in the small village of Ryhall in the East Midlands of the U.K where he has put together an amazing collection. He has been collecting Doctor Who merchandise for the past 30 years and his collection is currently residing in a room at his Granddads house. Among his many item he has the complete set of Dr Who titles currently available on VHS, many with autographs of the cast, a half size Dalek and a chess set.

Christopher Ecclestone is Simon's favorite incarnation of the Doctor, simply because he wasn't alive to see the series live back when the others were originally aired the first time. His earliest memory of the 'classic' series is seeing a repeat of Remembrance of the Daleks on UK Gold.

Simon has never been to a convention but hopes to do so in the near future. One highlight though would be his recent trip to the Doctor Who Exhibition in Blackpool where he and his family were kindly allowed to sit in Bessie for some photographs.
