Cover blurb:
“There are lots of surprises for the family at the Greatest Show in the Galaxy! So many strange surprises, I’m prepared to bet, whatever you’ve seen before, you ain’t seen nothing yet."

Welcome to the dying days of Doctor Who. Witness the death defying feats of writer Stephen Wyatt and new Script Editor Andrew Cartmel as they walk the high wire without a safety net, perform spectacular acts of sympathetic magic and — before your very eyes! — lay to rest all the malign spirits of 1980s Doctor Who one by one by one. Watch as they invoke an unlikely spirit animal for Doctor Who — UK Hip Hop — and, under the benevolent influence of fellow magician Alan Moore, conjure a new future for everyone’s favourite Time Lord that outlives even the twentieth century itself!

Dale Smith is a dramatist, novelist and critic from Manchester.

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
