Customer Review

on 19 July 2013
I have been an avid Doctor Who fan for my entire life (I can remember watching the show when I was five). I've got two book shelves full of Doctor Who books. I think this book is exceptional.

The author has real enthusiasm for the subject and makes it a real page turner. The sections on the Peter Cushing movies and Scratchman are comprehensive, informative and very readable. He turns the story of each production into an informative narrative with information from the files, pulling together of high quality sources and interviews with contributors from both sides of the camera.

Best of all though, there are entire sections in this book about film projects about which I knew nothing. It's rare for me to now read fresh classic, or pre-2005, Doctor Who research. This has book has it. I've not seen anything about the proposed movie of The Abominable Snowmen or most of the BBC Films efforts elsewhere.

The cover is also a really beautiful piece of art that would stand release as a poster (slight pity about the typography that seems too heavy).

The author has written an entertaining and informative book. If the subject is for you, buy it.
