Review – Doctor Who: The Writer’s Tale by Russell T. Davies and Benjamin Cook

Doctor Who: The Writer's Tale: The Final ChapterDoctor Who: The Writer’s Tale: The Final Chapter by Russell T Davies
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is not for Doctor Who fans.

I mean, it is. Of course it is. It’s co-written by one of the great Doctor Who writers and a columnist for Doctor Who magazine, chronicling a three year period of making the show, and they constantly talk about the process of making Doctor Who.

But really, this book isn’t only (or even primarily) about Doctor Who. If you are interested in writing, or the writing process, this book is for you. If you’re interested in the aesthetics and production of TV, too. In a nutshell, this book is about artists, and work, and self-doubt, and self-confidence, and actors, and producers, and fans, and fandom, and critics, and media, and journalists, and politics, and faith, and humor, and life.

Oh, and Doctor Who. That too.
