Cover blurb:
After almost 50 years of television serials, original novels, comic strips, audio dramas, short stories, radio plays, cartoons, graphic novels, cinema films and just about anything else you could possibly imagine, after almost 50 years of a series which has change as its most fundamental conceit, there's only one thing most Doctor Who fans can agree upon: how special it is.

In December 2010, Starburst writer J.R. Southall embarked upon a project that would demonstrate just how much variety there was among fans of the show, and that would conversely show just how much they all had in common, too.

You and Who is the result of that project. It's an anthology of essays, written by fans, in which those fans attempt to reveal just how and why they became fans of Doctor Who in the first place. There's humour, there's horror and there's heartbreak. Just as there is in the series itself.

But what You and Who mostly goes to show is not how much we share in common with the series we all love, but how much we share in common with one another. For the essays contained herein aren't just the stories of those who've written them and Doctor Who, they're the same story we have all lived.

They're the story of You and Who.

This book is produced in aid of Children in Need.

Cover blurb:
Very few television programmes make it to their fiftieth birthday. But then, Doctor Who is just a little bit special.

From its humble beginnings being recorded in a tiny studio on 405-line black and white video cameras with a minuscule budget, to its latest incarnation on HD as one of the BBC's flagship dramas, Doctor Who has always moved with the times, and often reflected them. For the last five decades, the series has inspired and engaged audiences in a way that no other television programme has ever managed.

As it enters its anniversary year, Doctor Who is more popular than ever before. This wholly original blend of science fiction concepts and magical storytelling, updated for the 21st century, is delighting a whole new generation of fans, alongside those of us who waited patiently for the inevitable regeneration.

You and Who: Contact Has Been Made is a record of how that relationship began, how it continues, and of how we have experienced those fifty years, as written by the show's own fans.
