This is a great campaign, Louis. I hope you and other Doctor Who fans with visual impairments get to experience some journeys in the TARDIS with those touch-to-see books soon. Best of luck to you! - Gregor

This struck such a chord with me and I don't know why. As someone unaffected by any visual disability, I've been able to enjoy Doctor Who all my life with no hindrance to my viewing. I've seen all the worlds and times the TARDIS has taken us. And yet, selfishly, I never once thought about what it would be like not to have seen the show and only had the word of others to try and visualise it in my mind. I think this project is beyond exceptional and a true testament to one young man's passion and kindness. As many have said before me, the Doctor would be (and certainly is) proud of you, Louis x

Doctor who has been such great joy in my life and I think it's great that this will allow people who are less able to enjoy parts of Doctor who to experience it in other ways.

I hate to think ANYONE should be barred from immersing themselves in the Whoniverse for any reason, this is a great idea, wish Louis the very best :)

Hope everything goes well with this endeavour, Louis. Doctor Who is for everyone and I hope everyone gets to enjoy it.

Louis, I just learned about your project today from my friend Greg Hudson, and I want applaud you for being the first to make this possible. I knew audio, and even 3rd party-read versions, of published Doctor Who titles existed but this is a step far above, and one I hope becomes the norm for the visually impaired. I wish you the best of luck!

Allan McMillan 23rd July 2021

Well done Louis. Doctor Who is a massive part of my life too and your own story resonated with me on many levels. You should be very proud of yourself. A great campaign for a very worthwhile cause
