“Leach offers a highly perceptive and insightful reading of the wonderful world of Doctor Who that will please fans and scholars alike. Written with flair and evident enthusiasm, but without ever losing sight of the role of a critic, Leach provides new and original perspectives on the series. An essential addition to the shelf of every true Whovian."
— James Chapman, University of Leicester, author of Inside the Tardis: The Worlds of Doctor Who—A Cultural History
“Leach won me over with this book’s scope and style. Despite all of the Doctor Who material available, this is a much-needed academic yet widely accessible introduction to the original series."
— Derek Kompare, assistant professor of cinema and television at Southern Methodist University
Jim Leach is professor of popular culture and film at Brock University, Ontario, Canada. He is author of numerous books including Film in Canada, British Film, and Claude Jutra, Filmmaker.
