The cast and crew of Doctor Who tell the real story of its creation …

For almost 30 years, Doctor Who Magazine has documented the making of this unique television series, interviewing every major player, be they actors, directors, producers, designers, writers … even monsters!

This Special Edition gathers together the best of these interviews as the cast and crew themselves recall their part in the legend of Doctor Who, making for a frank, forthright, and insightful memoir — in turns funny, poignant, provocative, and surprising. To illustrate their story we have selected hundreds of amazing pictures — iconic images from the BBC archives, alongside less familiar shots from private collections.

This volume — covering the colourful exploits of the caring, sharing, cricket-obsessed fifth incarnation of the Doctor, and his tasteless, curly-haired, larger-than-life successor — provides a complete primer for newcomers, and a valuable refresher for hardened aficionados. It plots an assortment of shoot-first-ask-questions later action adventures, chronicles a succession of love-‘em-or-loathe-‘em TARDIS travellers (in-your-face air hostess Tegan Jovanka, pyjam-clad maths whiz Adric, bosomy botanist Peri, and high-pitched health-freak Mel, amongst others), and unmasks a line-up of weird and wonderful adversaries — Daleks, Cybermen, Sontarans, the Master, the Rani, the Valeyard, and an unwieldly green-painted panto horse! Plus, find out how Davros got high, how low fandom sunk, and what happened when the BBC axed Doctor Who …

Featuring contributions from Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee, Tom Baker, John Nathan-Turner, Eric Saward, Matthew Waterhouse, Sarah Sutton, Janet Fielding, Mark Strickson, Nicola Bryant, Bonnie Langford and many more — plus an Afterword by Dalek writer Robert Shearman!
