Cover blurb:
An incredible critical analysis of each of the thirteen episodes of the 2005 series of Doctor Who, a detailed breakdown of each episode with facts and figures, and a twelve-chapter archive of information and memories chronicling the development of the new series from 2003 to 2005. Back to the Vortex is a comprehensive and engaging look at the new series from the outside in ... all the news coverage, the media speculation, the hype, and the developments as they happened. Fantastic!

‘Books like Back to the Vortex create road markers for future generations who want to know more about our beloved Time Lord and his impact on society.’

From the introduction by Philip David Segal, former Doctor Who producer.

Cover blurb:
Christopher Eccleston is the Doctor!

The adventures in time and space continue, as the Doctor and his faithful companion Rose Tyler travel time and space fighting evil, righting wrongs and saving the course of history. This is the ultimate guide to the newest adventures of the Doctor: an archive of information, review and commentary, from the press to the production to the fans, as the venerable Time Lord returns to television in 2005 in a thirteen-part series set to stun viewers and critics alike.

Back to the Vortex recounts the series’ history as it happened, from the announcements to the press releases, the casting calls, the highs and lows, and the start of production.

The episodes themselves are covered through detailed analysis, facts and figures, as well as extensive reviews and commentary with a panel of fans and aficionados from across the world.

This is the essential guide to the long awaited and much-anticipated return of the Doctor.


Doctor Who is one of the great institutions of television. It’s a classic, and viewers love it.’
