I cannot wait to dive into this! The Doctors – the Archive: An Unofficial Guide from the Daily Mirror Vaults has a ton of behind the scenes photos from the classic and modern eras of Doctor Who. I will be diving into this tonight!

Since Doctor Who began its incredible run on British television in 1963, the Daily Mirror has always been there to cover the adventures of the Time Lord. From the show’s earliest days, The Doctors – The Archive features stunning unseen images from the Mirror’s archive. For the first time, fans can see the show’s original star William Hartnell having his wig put in place, and see behind the scenes on many of the show’s episodes which have now been lost in time. The extensive photographic coverage features rare and never-before-seen pictures from not just the show’s early years, but throughout the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, plus exclusive pictures taken during the recording of the revived television series which has become a sensation in the 21st century. Featuring archive and brand new interviews, this special publication to mark the Time Lord’s birthday is an essential read for all fans of the show. This 84-page glossy magazine, published under our Mirror Collection series,salutes and commemorates 50 years of Doctor Who on the BBC and will be hugely collectable.

Dirty Rocker Boys Bobbie Brown & Caroline Ryder

Dirty Rocker Boys Bobbie Brown & Caroline Ryder

SHE’S MY CHERRY PIE. Tastes so good, make a grown man cry.

Who could forget the sexy “Cherry Pie” girl from hair metal band Warrant’s infamous music video? Bobbie Brown became a bona fide vixen for her playful role as the object of lead singer Jani Lane’s desires. With her windblown peroxide mane, seductive scarlet lips, and flirtatious curves, she epitomized every man’s fantasy. But the wide-eyed Louisiana beauty queen’s own dreams of making it big in Los Angeles were about to be derailed by her rock-and-roll lifestyle. . . .

Ever wonder what it ’s like to f*** a rock star?

After her tumultuous marriage to Jani imploded, and her engagement to fast-living Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee ended in a drug haze—followed by his marriage days later to Pamela Anderson—Bobbie decided it was time Hollywood’s hottest bachelors got a taste of their own medicine. Step one: get high. Step two: get even.

In a captivating, completely uncensored confessional, Bobbie explicitly recounts her encounters with some of the most famous men in Hollywood: Leonardo DiCaprio, Kevin Costner, Mark McGrath, Dave Navarro, Sebastian Bach, Ashley Hamilton, Rob Pilatus of Milli Vanilli, Matthew and Gunnar Nelson, Orgy’s Jay Gordon, and many more. Who’s got the most titanic dick in Tinseltown? Whose bedroom did Bobbie (literally) set on fire? No man was off limits as the fun-loving bombshell spiraled into excess, anger, and addiction.

Bobbie survived the party—barely—and her riveting, cautionary comeback tale is filled with the wildest stories of sex, drugs, and rock and roll ever told.
