Tom Nichols, Doctor Who Super Fan

Dr Who Super Fan Tom Nichols-2

On Monday afternoon I found myself in a three bed house in Reading, taking some extremely fun portraits of a 22 year old chap called Tom Nichols. Tom is a massive fan of Doctor Who and has an enormous collection of memorabilia, including a full size dalek in his bedroom and full size tardis in his back garden!

The photos were taken for Wimdu, a couch-surfing site that allows you to rent people's homes when travelling instead of staying in hotels.  Tom is hoping to make some money to help his local group of scouts.

They've been published today on page 8 of The Independent and page 19 of The 'i' too, as well as online on the BBC and Mirror websites.

Published in The Independent and The 'i'.

 

Here are a few more photos you don't see in the papers or the press....
