Cover blurb:
‘The shadow of my past and of your future.’

Warriors’ Gate (1981) represents Doctor Who at its most narratively and visually experimental, created in collaboration between a radio dramatist and a film director. Using archive research and new interviews, this book examines the development of Warriors’ Gate through its many drafts and several authors, and its roots in New Wave SF, the philosophy of science, modernist theatre, film and television, German Romantic painting, pop video, and electronic video effects.

Frank Collins is the author of The Pandorica Opens: Exploring the Worlds of the Eleventh Doctor.

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."
