It is the frankest book ever written about Doctor Who, and contains material that could not have been published in the lifetime of its subject, a bookie's son from Birmingham who became the programme's longest-serving producer.

Synopsis

For more than a decade, John Nathan-Turner, or JN-T as he was more often known, was in charge of every major artistic and practical decision affecting the world's longest-running science fiction programme, Doctor Who. Richard Marson brings his dramatic, farcical, sometimes scandalous, and often moving story to life with the benefit of his own inside knowledge and the fruits of over 100 revealing interviews with key friends and colleagues, those John loved and those from whom he became estranged. The author has also had access to all of Nathan-Turner's surviving archive of paperwork and photos, many of which appear here for the first time.

381 pp. Color and b&w illustrations.
