This review is from: Who And Me: The Memoir of Barry Letts, "Doctor Who" Producer 1969-1974 (Paperback)
This is so much more than a written collection of remembered stories. Barry Letts talks as much about 'how' he produced and directed television programmes as 'what' was going on. His personality comes through the writing - anyone who's watched him being interviewed will instantly recognise the tone and phrasing - and his quiet and courteous manner shine in the text. Mr. Letts comes across as what they had in mind when they came up with the word 'Gentle-Man'. To be honest, a lot of the WHO stories are ones a fan probably already knows but it is the context he gives the stories that's new so you see them in a whole new light.
Be prepared for a bitter/sweet ending to the book though: This book was obviously written as part one of a series of books but to the best of my knowledge, this tome is the only one that was written. Barry writing his life as a serial seems highly appropriate though and to actually leave us on a cliff-hanger even more so. Don't let this put you off though. This is a beautifully crafted book that deserves to be read.
