Seller: stmarkspress (5,457) 100%, Location: Bedford, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 183424048337 Superb new Doctor Who book from Bedford Who Charity Con (Books). Signed by the author. Witty, well written and painstakingly researched, Six Decades of Adventure in Space and Time is an engaging gallop through the history of Doctor Who, from its origins in 1963 to today. Writer Frank Danes is a prolific author; his previous books include the acclaimed Fifty Years in Time and Space for St Mark's Press. Huge fun! RRP is £15.95. You save £4.45! Six Decades of Adventure is designed to be the only single volume history of Doctor Who you’ll ever need. It’s witty, it’s very well written, and it’s fact packed. You’ll enjoy it if you’re pretty new to the series, if you’re fairly knowledgeable about the programme, or if you know the running time for every episode since November 1963 and the name of the bloke who swept the studio floor at Lime Grove on 13th February 1968 at 10.08 p.m. There’s lots of original analysis and the book also considers how contemporary society is reflected in the series’ production and storytelling. (New facts, too! For example, you can read about how the studio manager on Slipback suggested the description of the monster’s appearance could be enhanced for the listeners. It is rather bizarre...) Actually, if you like Doctor Who, you’ll like this book! Hugely and highly recommended! The publisher is Bedford Who Charity Con (Books). All the publisher's profits are split between two charitable endeavours. Some will go direct to Bedford Foodbank, who provide emergency food to 600 local adults and children every month. The rest will help with set-up costs for Bedford Who Charity Con 5 itself: this is a charity Doctor Who convention, held on Saturday 13th April 2019; all its profits will go direct to Bedford Foodbank. From the back cover blurb: Doctor Who is the longest running science fiction series in the world. Launched with little fuss by the BBC in November 1963, it quickly became established as must-see television: a fixture in British popular culture and consciousness. The original series ran for 26 years and the revival, launched in 2005, took the show into its sixth decade. Doctor Who continues to captivate and delight over 100 million viewers in over 100 countries worldwide. In its six decade run, Doctor Who has tracked and embodied the social, political and cultural changes in the United Kingdom and the world. Doctor Who has tackled the threats of fascism, environmental disaster, religious fanaticism and the mythical forces of evil. In the person of the Doctor herself – and himself – the programme has given us a hero as immortal in appeal as Sherlock Holmes and Robin Hood. Six Decades of Adventure in Space and Time is no dry academic tome, but a witty and engaging gallop through the history of Doctor Who. It is both for the diehard fan and the viewer who has just joined the show. It is the only one-volume history and reference book of the series you will ever need. Read Six Decades of Adventure – be the Doctor’s companion for a crazy voyage through time and space! Trade enquiries welcome.
