Book Description

26 Oct 2006 Doctor Who (Book 142)
In March 2005 a 900-year-old alien made a triumphant return to our television screens. This book is the definitive account of how the new Doctor Who came to our screens. Gary Russell has talked to everyone on the show from David Tennant, to executive producer Russell T Davies, to the people normally hidden inside the monster suits. With unparalleled access to design drawings, backstage photographs, costume designs, previously unpublished photographs and with an in-depth look at each of the 26 episodes of series one and two, as well as an exclusive look ahead to the Christmas special and series three, this is the book no Doctor Who fan can afford to be without.

5.0 out of 5 stars About time 7 Jan 2007
By M. Cox
This is a wonderfully detailled book, behind the scenes stuff about the two new seasons and the 2005 christmas episode, with even a sneak peak at season three and The Runaway Bride. It has quotes from the production group, and the actors and interesting tidbits about the filming of the series.

Most interesting this the section about casting the main characters and styling them. Each episode is looked at, with the two parters having extra pages, because they are obviously longer!

A nice guide to the backstory and filming of new Who, with lots of interesting pictures. I only wish there were a few larger pictures.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-have for fans of the show 21 Nov 2007
By Watson
I was a little late buying this as obviously series 3 has now been and gone, but still, what a marvellous book! It goes very in-depth with how Doctor Who came to be resurrected, how the cast were assembled, what went into the set up, plus full info on every episode of the first two series, not to mention more colour photos than you can shake a sonic screwdriver at! If you are a Doctor Who nut like me, and love a good informative read, you will love this.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent insight 12 Feb 2011
By Harriet
This book is an excellent insight into the making of Doctor Who. Although it would have been good to have some more behind the scenes pictures of the cast and some more comments from them, this book is a great read and I would definitely recommend it to any Doctor Who fan!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read 18 April 2009
I ordered this book after hearing it recommended. I must say it was a pleasant surprise. Even two years after it is was published I still came across anecdotes that I had not heard before ... Very entertaining ... Who knew that David Tennant's suit jackets were made of trousers???
