Cover blurb:
In 1996, over nine million people in Britain alone tuned in to watch the rebirth of a legend — the Doctor Who television movie, starring Paul McGann as the eighth incarnation of BBC Television's famous Time Lord.

As seen through the eyes of Philip Segal, the only man who can tell it as it really was, Doctor Who — Regeneration provides a unique and fascinating insight into the creation of a whole new era for Doctor Who.

Packed full of behind-the-scenes stories — some funny, some rather dark — this is the story of one man's struggle to bring the world's longest running and most popular science fantasy series back to the television screens of the world.

With additional views from the director, Geoffrey Sax, and stars of the television movie itself, this is the most detailed exploration of a previously mysterious part of the Doctor Who universe.

Cover blurb:
In 1996, over nine million people in Britain alone tuned in to watch the rebirth of a legend — the Doctor Who television movie, starring Paul McGann as the eighth incarnation of BBC Television's famous Time Lord.

Broadcast on the BBC every year since 1963, loyal viewers were perplexed when, one day in 1989, it stopped. Rumours abounded about the show's viewing figures, its production costs and even a mysterious phone call from an American television producer keen to remake the show in Hollywood.

Seen through the eyes of the only man who can tell it as it really was, Philip Segal, Doctor Who: Regeneration offers a fascinating insight into the politics of television in the 1990s. Charting the project from its conception, it tells the story of one man's fight to bring the world's longest running and most popular science fantasy series back to the television screens of the world.

With additional views from a variety of key players, including the director Geoffrey Sax and the stars of the movie itself, Doctor Who: Regeneration is a strikingly detailed account of an adventure into a previously unexplored part of the Doctor Who universe.
