The posthumous memoirs of Sydney Newman: maverick producer, television pioneer and the creator of a little programme called Doctor Who.
Sydney Newman reflects on his life, from growing up in a poor Jewish-Canadian family, to entering the emerging field of television, to nurturing some of the finest talent for the small screen in the UK… If you saw Brian Cox’s charismatic performance in the 50th Anniversary docudrama An Adventure in Space and Time and wanted to know more about the man behind the legend, here is the perfect opportunity. Covering his work on Doctor Who, The Avengers and countless other productions, Newman’s memoirs are made public here for the first time.
An original novella featuring the Fifth Doctor, along with his companions Peri and Erimem.
The American Civil War — a time of great unrest, when fathers found themselves in conflict with their sons and when lawlessness and slavery were rife. The Doctor, together with his companions Peri and Erimem, arrive in the middle of the conflict. The Doctor manages to cope in his own inimitable manner, however Peri — an American — and Erimem — a dark-skinned Egyptian — find themselves faced with all the bigotry and hatred that typified the war for some… This deluxe edition is limited to 600 copies, all signed by author Iain McLaughlin.
