Cover blurb:
One of the most popular characters from "DOCTOR WHO" was Sgt. BENTON, created during the Troughton era and still around when Tom Baker took over.

JOHN WOODS (alias JOHN LEVENE) is renowned for his appearances at conventions both in Britain and America. He can always be relied upon to recount some hysterical story connected with his time in the programme.

In this MYTH MAKERS he does just that and brings his own unique sense of humour sharply into focus.

This one is guaranteed to leave you laughing.

Cover blurb:
"When I see the quality of what we did with nothing it shines very brightly over even some of the modern Hollywood products."

In 1987, when Nicholas Briggs first interviewed John Levene, it was a hot summer day in Richmond Park. John had begun a career in audio-visual presentation and was looking forward to a new chapter in his life.

Eight years later, John is now living in the USA with his partner Jenny and has built a life organising gala Hollywood charity events. During all this time there have been two constants in John's life, Doctor Who and his irrepressible sense of humour.

Nicholas Briggs managed to catch John on one of his rare visits to England and they take up the story so far including Wartime and Return to Devil's End...
