Second Flight is the story of the development of the BBC’s BAFTA Award-winning family science-fiction serial Doctor Who, as David Tennant takes over the lead role from Christopher Eccleston and the good Doctor embarks on a Christmas special (‘The Christmas Invasion’) and a full second series of new adventures in time and space with his loyal companion Rose Tyler, played by Billie Piper.
Second Flight reveals the background to the series: the announcements, the press releases, the casting calls, the highs and lows — and the return of some old friends in the form of the robot dog K-9 and the Doctor’s one-time companion Sarah Jane Smith, played by Elisabeth Sladen.
Culminating in an epic battle as the Cybermen vie with the Daleks for control of the Earth, the second series confirmed Doctor Who’s status as the most popular drama programme on British TV. This book features a comprehensive episode guide to the series, with lots of facts and figures, details of spin-off novels and comics, and reviews from an international panel of writers and critics.
With an introduction by the Sixth Doctor, Colin Baker.
