Book Description

21 Jan 2010 BBC Audio
In 2005, after sixteen years off-air, "Doctor Who" returned to BBC Television - and soon became more popular than ever before. In this special anthology of clips and interviews, featuring newly-released material, Elisabeth Sladen journeys back to the recent past to delve into the show's dazzling success. With the help of extracts from radio programmes as diverse as "Go 4 It", "Jo Whiley", "PM", "Newsbeat" and "The Now Show", she explores the run-up to the launch of Series 1 and follows the programme's progress right up to 2009, with the the impending departure of David Tennant. Featuring the voices of David Tennant, Catherine Tate, Christopher Eccleston, Kylie Minogue, Freema Agyeman, Russell T. Davies and many others, this is an absorbing retrospective look at how Doctor Who returned to our screens to capture the hearts of millions of fans. '...features comments from the likes of Tennant, Catherine Tate, Christopher Eccleston, Kylie Minogue, Freema Agyeman and Russell T. Davies, and acts as a perfect tribute to all of their achievements in helping ensure the return of Doctor Who was such a dazzling success' - "Dunmow Broadcast". '...an absorbing retrospective look at how Doctor Who returned to our screens to capture the hearts of millions of fans' - "Lincolnshire Echo".

3.0 out of 5 stars This is Radio Who 31 Jan 2010
By R. C. McGinlay VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
The latest round-up of audio snippets in the Doctor Who at the BBC series, presented by Elisabeth Sladen (alias Sarah Jane Smith), focuses entirely upon the new series, starring Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant.

The earliest clips in this largely chronological collection come from March 2005, with Eccleston being interviewed on Radio 1's Oneclick and Jo Whiley shows, while the latest comes from April 2009, when Tennant made a return visit to the Jo Whiley studio. In between, we hear Freema Agyeman enthusing to Radio 5 Live's Simon Mayo about her role as Martha Jones (March 2007), Tennant interviewing Kylie Minogue in Radio 2's Re-X-amining Kylie (December 2007) and Catherine Tate interviewing Tennant in Radio 4's Chain Reaction (February 2008), among others.

It's interesting to compare the public personas of Eccleston and Tennant, and in this regard the soundbites from Jo Whiley's show are the most revealing. Eccleston was never a huge fan of Doctor Who, so he fails miserably at Whiley's "name that monster" challenge. By contrast, Tennant, who was and is a devoted fan, fares a lot better. We also witness Whiley's own burgeoning fandom in clips from 2005, 2006 and 2009.

As with previous volumes in this series, it would have been nice to hear some of the programmes in full, especially Chain Reaction. There would certainly have been room for the latter, as the running time of this double CD is unusually short (95 minutes). Material from BBC Radio's copious Christmas 2009 coverage is also conspicuous by its absence - precluded, no doubt, by this product's release date.

Nevertheless, there's plenty here to entertain followers of the Who legend.

I cannot review this item as I purchased it as a gift. However, I will say it arrived in a timely fashion and I was able to have it for Christmas. Other than that, I cannot say.
