5.0 out of 5 stars The best book about 'Doctor Who' I've ever read/, 10 Jun. 2013
JN-T remains a divisive person in Doctor Who fandom and this book provides a gripping insight into why. You can almost smell the Dunhills and vodka wafting off the page with the rise and fall of the larger than life producer. The book is not without its faults as Mason has occasional lapses of subjectivity and the chronology jumps all over the place, but the comments that Russell T Davies makes about how JN-T was treated and how the show was allowed to decline by the BBC is cover the cover price alone.
I could barely put the book down, and it's a must for anyone not just interested in "classic" Doctor Who but how British TV was made in the last century. Highly recommended.
