Note: A print-on-demand edition (linked via the Lulu logo above) was also released in May 2019 to allow Australia/NZ readers to order the book with much cheaper postage costs. It is identical to the original version, except for having a glossy cover instead of the original’s matt cover.
‘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.
