1979. Adam, 18, fulfils his childhood dream by landing a traineeship on Doctor Who. Although he gets to make coffee for his Doctor, Tom Baker, Adam is mostly tasked with lugging robot dog K-9 about. And then K-9 starts talking - but only Adam can hear him. When Michael, Adam's lifelong friend gets cast as a monster and starts dating beautiful actress Clarissa, Adam realises it's time to grow up. But is confiding in K-9 really the best route into adulthood? Or is Adam ready to face the awful truth - that there's more to life than Doctor Who?
