Cover blurb:
'We obey our creator. That is all that can be expected of any character.'

In a transitional season of Doctor Who between the base under siege formula and later, more grounded stories, no story was more experimental than The Mind Robber (1968), the debut of the visually inventive director David Maloney. Its creative solutions to production problems, including a main cast member's illness and the need to add an entire extra episode, lift it from run-of-the-mill whimsy to one of the series' finest moments.

Andrew Hickey has written books on topics including Doctor Who, and a novel, Head of State.
