Inside the Tardis (Revised) (Paperback)
About this item
James Chapman's history of Doctor Who has been acclaimed by fans and scholars alike as a definitive book on the world's longest-running television science fiction series. In this new edition, published to mark the 50th anniversary of everyone's favourite Time Lord, Chapman has brought the story up to date to include the new series of Doctor Who as well as its spin offs Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures.
With new chapters on the eras of showrunners Russell T. Davies and Steven Moffat, and the latest incarnations of the Doctor in David Tennant and Matt Smith, this updated edition of Inside the Tardis shows how Doctor Who has triumphantly reinvented itself for the twenty-first century. Chapman maps the continuities with classic Doctor Who, as well as exploring how the series has evolved to take account of new institutional and cultural contexts. This new edition is essential and enjoyable reading for all those interested in both the classic series and its thoroughly modern reincarnation.
"The best overview of Doctor Who that I have ever read." - Andrew Pixley, Doctor Who Magazine
