Publisher's Summary


Paperback edition

More than two decades after it began Doctor Who is now the longest-running TV science fiction programme in the world. Over the years the show has attracted some of the most talented people in television, from producers and directors, to actors and writers.
In The Doctor Who File Peter Haining unlocks the secrets of the TARDIS memory banks and explores the history of this influential show through a series of fascinating interviews and specially commissioned articles.
From pieces on the creation of the Cybermen, the difficulties in driving a Dalek, and the Doctor Who film that never was, to features on the show's writers - including Douglas Adams who went on to script The Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy - and the first six Doctors, plus the actors who were very nearly selected to play the role. The Doctor Who File is a fascinating record of a unique phenomenon.
