I ordered this and the Ray Cusick Signature Collection book at the same time.
Predictably this one has the same problem. Between A4 and A5, it's really too small to do the photos justice. The soundbites from old interviews have been better picked and editied into the book than in the Ray Cusick collection and they really do add value to the photos e.g. he talks of how for Time Meddler research had revealed they used ox blood on the floors of huts which gave them a polished black look but for people watching it would have been far from obvious what he was trying to replicate.
The strange order of the photos jumping from Bill Hartnell to Tom Baker etc is an attempt to put the stories in historical order which is fine for the historically based tales but less successful with the futuristic ones where dates are a matter of conjecture largely.
It's slightly better than the other book but not enough to get 3 stars and really not recommended.
There is a definitive designing who book in a large format waiting to be done bringing together all the photos of various designers over the decades and not just Ray Cuisick and Barry Newbery but also less prolific designers e.g. Roger Cheveley's colour shots from The War Games and I hope the option is taken up one day.
I have always been a fan of the design work of Barry Newbery and was looking forward to what additional insights this book had to offer. In short - none.
The text (what little there is) and most (if not all) of the pictures have been taken from old interviews in the Frame magazine.
The book is divided into story by story sections with one glaring omission which is ANY reference to the Season 14 police box or console room.
This book is nothing more than an exercise in how much money can be bleed from consumers by attaching the name Doctor Who and repackaging old information.
If there is anyone desperate to see the contents and doesn't want to waste the over inflated amount being charged, go onto e-bay and buy second hand copies of the relevant issues of the Frame. Not only will you get the same information but no further monies will be going into the pockets of the rip off merchants behind this book.
I look forward to future releases under this 'signature' heading with total anticipointment.
I realise that being a limited, independent publication; the price is going to be a little higher than usual, but an rrp of £24-99 is a rip-off for this title. A real shame :(
