We’ve received details of two exciting new titles from the Doctor Who Magazine team:
DOCTOR WHO MAGAZINE: IN THEIR OWN WORDS
VOLUME ONE: 1963-69
“Sports had a tremendous audience, and then suddenly there was a dramatisation of The Water babies or something – and everybody turned onto ITV or switched off! So my bosses thought maybe I ought to come up with another kind of children’s drama that would hold the sports-loving audience. So I dreamed up Doctor Who…” Sydney Newman
For more than 25 years, Doctor Who Magazine has documented the making of this unique television series, interviewing every major player, be they actors, directors, producers, designers, writers… even monsters!
Now, for the first time, DWM has gathered together the best of these interviews, as the cast and crew themselves recall their part in the legend of Doctor Who, making for a frank, forthright and insightful memoir.
This first volume, covering Doctor Who’s birth and the six years that followed, provides a complete primer for newcomers, and a valuable refresher for hardened aficionados. Find out how the TARDIS was designed and why the Time Lords were invented. Plus, almost four decades after the Doctor’s appearance changed for the very first time, hear the story of how ‘regeneration’ came to be, and how the show survived the departure of its leading man.
Featuring contributions from William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton, Sydney Newman, Verity Lambert, Terry Nation, David Whitaker, William Russell, Jacqueline Hill, Maureen O’Brien, Anneke Wills, Frazer Hines, Nicholas Courtney, Wendy Padbury and hundreds more – plus an Afterword from Doctor Who’s current Executive Producer Russell T Davies!
The magazine goes on sale from Thursday 17 November 2005 priced �5.99.
