Packed full of facts, stats, trivia and data, the book is organised according to the galaxies and star systems that appear in the Doctor Who stories. Encyclopedia style, each entry offers information on the planet, its native species, history, and the role it plays in the Doctor’s journeys. Uniquely, the book is peppered with bespoke timelines that chart the Doctor’s interaction with each planet, not just in his television appearances, but short stories, comics, and radio stories as well, making this the most comprehensive study of the Doctor Who universe ever compiled.

Lethbridge-Stewart: Mutually Assured Domination

mutually assured domination.jpg ? In Stock £8.99

Category: Lethbridge-Stewart Novels

The late ‘60s. Global power balances are shifting and the peace movement, preoccupied with the Vietnam War after the Tet offensive, has perhaps taken its eye off the nuclear ball.


Certain ‘outside interests’ take advantage of this situation and soon the world is poised on the brink of nuclear armageddon.


It’s up to Colonel Lethbridge-Stewart and uneasy ally journalist Harold Chorley to fight the forces of darkness and save the day.


Featuring the return of the Dominators and their weapons of mass destruction, the Quarks! Also features a forward by novelist Paul Finch.


Nick Walters has written five novels for Doctor Who since 1998. Nick said: “After the Doctor himself the Brigadier is the best-loved character in Doctor Who. I met Nick Courtney a number of times and he really is a splendid fellow. He brought a real humanity and vulnerability to the role without compromising the essential toughness of the character. Brigadier Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart is the chap you'd want on your side in a fight – any fight – and it is a real privilege to be exploring what made him into the character we came to know and love.”

Robert Banks Stewart: To Put You In The Picture

to put you in the picture.jpg ? In Stock £16.99

Category: Autobiography

The memoir of Robert Banks Stewart, one of Britain’s most legendary television writer/producers, whose career has spanned five decades. Viewers who have watched television and its development over this period – including viewers of today – will be hugely entertained by this splendid autobiography.


The author has penned a host of behind-the-scenes anecdotes, most of them hitherto untold, plus descriptions of his considerable work experiences with refreshing candour (successes and failures) and delightful humour. Credited with breaking the mould of early UK thriller dramas with ground-breaking series like Shoestring and Bergerac, he purposely set them away from the usual easy, endlessly grim metropolitan street backgrounds derived from BBC Radio, instead exploiting different locations – like the West Country and the Channel Island of Jersey. He also cleverly cast new actors such as John Nettles, Trevor Eve, Greta Scaachi and Catherine Zeta-Jones, rather than established stars, whilst also featuring film veterans like Terence Alexander and Michael Medwin in regular roles. Writing, adapting and producing – with what was called ‘the touch’ – Robert Banks Stewart was also responsible for many more hit television series, among them the initial productions of The Darling Buds of May and Lovejoy.

Bernard Wilkie: A Peculiar Effect on the BBC

peculiar effect.jpg ? In Stock £17.99

Category: Doctor Who Reference Books

Bernard Wilkie is a pioneer in the world of visual effects. Along with Jack Kine he co-founded the BBC’s Visual Effects Department in 1954. Between them they worked on too many BBC productions to list, but chief among them were Doctor Who, Out of the Unknown, Quatermass, Monty Python’s Flying Circus, and Some Mothers Do ‘ave ‘em. He passed away in 2002, writing this book in the late 1990s.


A Peculiar Effect on the BBC is his previously unpublished memoir and looks back on his career as a whole, covering each programme in detail with a light, but still educational, and often cautionary tone.


Whether it’s trying to make a smoke gun, encase an Ice Warrior in a block of ice, creating a Loch Ness Monster or simply coming up with a way of presenting a photo collection on screen utilising only one studio camera, Bernard and Jack rose to the occasion – often choking, soaking and terrifying their colleagues in the process. And almost all of these effects had to be done live – the pressure was on!


Bernard also talks in detail about the BBC taking over Ealing Studios and the construction of the now-defunct Television Centre. For anyone interested in the history of television, this is a fascinating eye witness account.


Foreword by visual effects designer Mat Irvine and afterword by visual effects designer Mike Tucker
