Product Description


Between 1963 and 1989 the BBC's Doctor Who enjoyed a worldwide audience of 110 million - while being filmed almost entirely in the UK. Doctor Who on Location is the untold story of what happened when the BBC's cameras strayed from the confines of Television Centre to recreate alien planets in such improbable locations as Leeds Castle and the North Sea. Through unprecedented research at the BBC, every single local newspaper in the country, and interviews with production staff and programme stars, Richard Bignell has compiled the definitive history of Doctor Who on location. Every location is revealed, from the humble gravel pits of Gerrards Cross to the cafes of the Left Bank in Paris. The book also includes: New interviews with Doctor Who producers, directors and stars. Over 100 previously unpublished stills. Script extracts and stills from episodes no longer in the BBC's archive

That helps me to visit as many Doctor Who locations as possible, such as Hammersmith for Attack Of The Cybermen. I will be visiting more in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb reference book 1 Dec 2009
I'm not particularly into Doctor Who but this tome was a most welcome addition to my TV book shelf. It contains a collection of priceless behind the scenes information and rare location photographs (Douglas Camfield, Christopher Barry and Pennant Roberts directing, to give but a few examples), compiled with care and competence. No fanciful writing by some self-important scribe, which I find refreshing. A highly interesting combination of facts, comments and analyses - the pages of my copy are by now well thumbed! Congratulations to all involved for a remarkable achievement. If there's a follow-up I'm your man.

1.0 out of 5 stars Doctor Who - Exciting! !!This book? - Not!!! 21 Oct 2009
A dull, pedantic collection of stats that reads like a bus timetable. Regurgitates all the uninteresting bits about Who left behind by other, better authors.

Where was this book 5 years ago when I was going to the UK? Well illustrated, though somewhat lacking in the map department.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book!!! 28 Dec 2004

I received this book for Christmas, and my first impression was...this is your typical geeky "Star Trekish Book" (Cause everybody know's us Whovians are better then Trekkers/Trekkies). I should add that I do own quite a few Who books.
Gotta tell you, it's really enjoyable book. Not to many books have made me laugh out loud, but hearing some of the stories in here does just that. I own almost every Tom Baker and Jon Pertwee story on VHS, plus the odd story here and there of the other Doctor's. This book makes me want to revist those tapes as I read up on each of the stories.
The title suggests a rather boring read. I've really enjoyed this book since I began reading it. I can't seem to put down.
