Format: Paperback
Dr Who was in its heyday in the 70s, with decent budgets, great supporting cast, and two of the most charismatic Doctors, Jon Pertwee and Tom Baker. The special effects were ambitious (occasionally too ambitious!) the companions were among the best (Sarah Jane Smith, Leela and Romana) and a lot of effort was put into making the scripts work well. However, when you're watching it, questions pop into your head. Who's that actor? How long did that model take to build? Is there a person in that monster suit? Where is that quarry, anyway? This book is about answering those questions. Every episode in the 70s gets a write-up, and there are are sections on lost episodes, merchandise, profiles of the main actors, and, of course, lots of pictures including production sketches, publicity stills and more. While it doesn't answer every question you might have about the series, it has a good stab at doing so, and is the perfect companion for rewatching the series.

Tells the story of the background and history of the iconic BBC sci-fi series Dr Who during the 1970s when arguably two of the best 'Doctors' played the role, the late Jon Pertwee and Tom Baker. It is a nostalgic look at the series for anyone who grew up during the era and remembers the quite low-budget effects, companions struggling to take on more important and independent roles, and the wonderful Roger Delgado who made the role of the Master his own.The 70s produced many interesting Dr Who stories that made it different from most other sci-fi series of the day. Highly recommended to any fan of the series or to anyone who is interested in a behind the scenes look at the production of a BBC television series of the 1970s.
