Cover blurb:
“Of all the things I’m most proud of... it’s that we were able to give that opportunity to all those previously unknown authors... to get books published”

In the 1990’s VIRGIN PUBLISHING was one of the few media companies keeping the DOCTOR WHO flame alight during, what has been termed, “the wilderness years” - when there was no DOCTOR WHO on television.

During this time, DOCTOR WHO BOOKS publisher, PETER DARVILL-EVANS, held regular gatherings of his writers to brainstorm new ideas.

In 1993, REELTIME PICTURES was at The Conservatory bar in Central London to film one of these events, as the first step in making a MYTH MAKERS about VIRGIN PUBLISHING. We never completed the MYTH MAKERS ... until now!

Combined with a new interview with PETER, here are the highlights of that evening ... an evening that had two special moments ... an announcement and an anniversary. This is a true capsule of opinions from that time.
