Summary

Elisabeth Sladen presents another time-travelling journey through the history of Doctor Who on BBC radio and television. Since 1963, Doctor Who has had a massive influence on our popular culture - as this second volume of rare material illustrates. A favourite source of inspiration for comedy programmes including The Mary Whitehouse Experience, I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue and Dead Ringers, it has also provided a source of features for programmes such as Nationwide, Pebble Mill at One, Woman's Hour and Talkback: all featured here.

We hear from seven of the first eight actors to play the Doctor - Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee, Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy and Paul McGann - and there are interviews with companions Elisabeth Sladen, Louise Jameson, Matthew Waterhouse, and John Leeson. Director Paul Joyce takes us behind the scenes; and there's a plethora of news items about the Doctor's many returns since 1989.
