We also get to read about the problems with the scripts, the concerns of the Producers and Directors, what things cost, how things were made, and above all the uncertainty about the future and direction of Doctor Who. The price (£2.77) was an absolute steal! If one is lucky enough to see a copy for sale, particularly if you are a Dr Who and Hartnell fan- grab it! It is divided into 3 parts;
1) William Hartnell-in his own words
2) William Hartnell- as others saw him
3) The Doctor
Establishing the myth
From Script to Screen- "The Ark"
Selling the Doctor
The book consists of 350 pages!
this was actually the third in the series of handbooks to be published; the first was dedicated to tom baker.
none of the handbooks are particularly easy to find, so make sure you buy a good quality copy. enjoy!
