An enjoyable romp through 1970s classic Who,
This review is from: Doctor Who - The Scripts Tom Baker 1974/5. Full Scripts for Tom Baker's First Season: Scripts 1974/5 (Hardcover)
How amusing that Amazon had originaly listed 'Pip Baker" as the author of this book. Anyone watching Doctor Who in the 1980s will recall Pip (and Jane) Baker's succession of confused (and confusing ) scripts - but there are none of those here. Instead this is a collection of original "Tom Baker" era transmission scripts by a gallery of the show's most favourite writers: Robert Holmes, Terrance Dicks, Terry Nation, Robert Holmes, Bob Baker & Dave Martin, Gerry Davis and - did I mention? - Robert Holmes, the understated genius script editor for this series of heyday Who.
Come along on a journey with Tom Baker's charismatic Doctor Who, the heroic Sarah Jane Smith and the wonderfully bumbling Harry Sullivan and meet the emotionally confused Giant Robot, the parasitic space insect Wirrn, Davros - the ruthlessly twisted creator of the Daleks. And let's not forget the remorseless Cybermen, skulking around the galaxy in an ancient spaceship. Anyone who enjoyed David Tennant's recent 2006 outing as the Doctor will enjoy these scripts, and all the bonus information.
