Richard in Essex

Richard lives in Essex, England where he runs an Entertainments Agency. His earliest memories of Doctor Who are from Jon Pertwees final season when he was just four years old. It was Tom Bakers portrayal of the Doctor that really solidified Richard as a lifelong fan of the series.

The first piece of Doctor Who memorabilia that he remembers getting was a copy of the Target novelisation The Three Doctors at the tender age of five years old. Not possessing adequate reading skills yet he would make his Dad read the book to him. "Omegas palace on the written page sounded absolutely magnificent!" Richard recalls.

Richards collection quickly expanded, with his Nan giving him a Picolo Making of Doctor Who, followed with his Aunt giving him The Dalek Outer Space Book and his parents bought him annuals, more Target books and all the latest Denys Fisher range. A few years later, around 1978, Richard remembers their local grocery shop had a basket filled with Hertz Mechanoid toys where his Mum bought one for him at the outrageous price of 35p. To bad she didn’t buy the whole lot! These days Richard’s collecting tastes lean toward toys and books from the 60s and 70s, autographs and the occasional prop. He is a big internet buyer, mostly using eBay but he does make it to the occasional collectors fair and boot sale.

You can find Richard on the Message Board under the name "Fudge".
