Not price-clipped. Many others titles in the Doctor Who collection available. Make great gifts for any collector! Doctor Who became a British institution almost from the first episode, broadcast in 1963. It went on to become the country's longest-running science fiction TV series. There were seven different Doctors; scores of actors played the Doctors' companions. Doctor Who had its ups and downs, but the late 1980s - the tenure of Sylvester McCoy as the seventh and last Doctor (so far) - saw the series flower creatively even as the audience figures continued gently to decline. There was a new Doctor; a new script editor; new writers with big new ideas. There were new techniques in special effects - and Mike Tucker was part of the visual effects team on the series from 1985. And in 1987 the final TV companion arrived: Sophie Aldred played the rebellious, moody, streetwise and lionhearted teenager Ace, who rapidly became one of the all-time favourite Doctor's companions among the legions of fans. Mike and Sophie have collaborated to produce the ultimate insiders' guide to the last great era of Doctor Who, packed with hundreds of never-before-seen photographs from their private collections. Many more Doctor Who titles available in the shop. Send us your lists! ; Doctor Who; ChrisD

More Description

In 1989, Doctor Who vanquished the villian for the last time on British screens. This book is an account of the last three years of televised Doctor Who as seen through the eyes of Sophie Aldred, who portrayed Ace, the Doctor's last TV companion, and Mike Tucker, one of the visual effects designers. It contains interviews with other actors and members of the production staff and anecdotes from location shoots and rehearsal rooms. Also included are photographs from private collections and from a specially commissioned photo shoot.
