Cover blurb:
Exactly where did the idea for Doctor Who come from?
How did Canadian Sydney Newman change British culture forever?

We can trace the show's origins back to a BBC report on the development of a science fiction serial in the early 1960s, but Sydney had been kicking the idea around a long time before he came to England.

Travel back into the past and catch a glimpse of THE MAN WHO influenced some of the greatest writers and directors of all time, and whose legacy lives on today, 100 years after he was born.
