MATTHEW Waterhouse will be making a rare UK appearance at Waterstone's bookstore in Yeovil from 1pm on Saturday (July 24).

Matthew, who played the Dr Who's youngest companion Adric alongside both Tom Baker and Peter Davison between 1980-82, will be signing copies of his autobiography, Blue Box Boy and his well reviewed novel, Fates, Flowers.

Bookstore manager Marcus Bishop said: "This is a real treat for any Dr Who fan as Matthew has only been over from the US for a short time and the event on Saturday will be last before he flies home."
