In 2005, after sixteen years off-air, Doctor Who returned to BBC television – and soon became more popular than ever before. In this special anthology of clips and interviews, Elisabeth Sladen journeys back to the recent past to delve into the show’s dazzling success.
With the help of extracts from radio programmes as diverse as Go For It, Jo Whiley, PM, Newsbeat and The Now Show, she explores the run-up to the launch of Series 1 and follows the programme’s progress right up to 2009, with the announcement of the impending departure of David Tennant and the casting of Matt Smith as the 11th Doctor.
Coming up early next year is another EXCLUSIVE release from BBC Audio. Doctor Who: A Legend Reborn is read by ELISABETH SLADEN and will be available from February 11th, 2010 – priced £13.69. Click on the pic above for a bigger, juicier version whilst you can read the synopsis below:
