Cover blurb:
The return of Doctor Who to regular TV production after many years of absence has proven to be one of the BBC’s greatest successes of the last decade. To a great extent this is down to the distinctive re-invention of the programme by its chief writer and executive producer, Russell T. Davies, and the group of writers — many, like him, long-term Who fans — he assembled. The Unsilent Library examines the storytelling style and techniques of the first five years of the New Doctor Who. Ten in-depth critical essays explore how its writers have updated a series with a history stretching back five decades to stand in the forefront of contemporary science fiction drama.

With contributions by:
Richard Burley • Catherine Coker • Andrew Duncan and Sydney Duncan • Paul Hawkins • Antony Keen • Una McCormack • Leslie McMurtry • Clare Peabody • James Rose • Graham Sleight

and a foreword by Doctor Who writer Robert Shearman
