The untold story of Doctor Who is the story of fanzines: the magazines produced by the artistic and anarchistic culture called fandom. These publications are controversial, intellectual and witty. And often offensive, rude and scandalous. Their story could only be told unlicensed, making this collection of snippets from fanzines unauthorised, uncensored and unputdownable.
Included are a no-holds-barred interview with Tom Baker, set visits to Carnival of Monsters and The Web of Fear and as much satire, analysis and ranting as any fan could want. With contributions from all over the world and from three decades of fandom, Licence Denied is the book that finally exposes the artistry, rudeness and wit of Doctor Who fandom.
Much to his surprise, Paul Cornell has become a television writer, with credits on The Word, Springhill and Coronation Street. His own series, Wavelength, was recently screened on Children’s ITV. He’s also written lots of Doctor Who books, and co-written a number of volumes on cult television. He lives in London.
