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.
