Cover blurb:
‘I can’t make your dream come true forever, but I can make it come true today.’

In 1996 the Doctor Who TV movie gave new hope to a generation of fans, but it quickly proved a false dawn. While the production’s successes and failures have been exhaustively documented, the script, with its unique perspective on the Doctor’s Britishness, has been given lesser attention. With the help of a viewer survey and interview with screenwriter Matthew Jacobs, this Black Archive fills that gap. Foreword by Matthew Jacobs.

Paul Driscoll is a frequent contributor to the acclaimed You and Who series, and the author of The Black Archive #9: The God Complex.

Book-length looks at single Doctor Who stories from 1963 to the present day

“A grandly ambitious thing to attempt with something as exhaustively detailed as (Doctor Who). But they actually manage it. Treat your bookshelf."
—Doctor Who Magazine
