My Book Boyfriend is a weekly meme hosted by The Unread Reader where readers can swoon over boys in books every Wednesday!
Today’s My Book Boyfriend is The Eighth Doctor.
Oh, Doctor Who. I know this character does originate from a TV movie, but most of his adventures and all of his companions come from various books and a series of radio programmes so he can totally be My Book Boyfriend.
Eight was also my first doctor, which makes him near and dear to my heart. And I did read virtually all of his EDAs (Eighth Doctor Adventures) while in college ordering some from Amazon and even occasionally interlibrary loaning them from other states. I was not always crazy about him constantly losing a heart and developing amnesia time after time, but I loved his travels and his tolerance of Fitz, one of the most useless companions in the history of ever.
A Decent Likeness of Said Book Boyfriend:
This one’s easy since Paul McGann played him in the movie (and I love Paul McGann).

What Led to Massive Crushing:
He’s the Doctor. And he wears a frock coat. He’s also just a really fun character. Plus he’s really eager to make friends and help people to get more excited or involved in the world(s) they live in.
