Cover blurb:
Barry Letts began his screen career as an actor, starring in the Ealing film Scott of the Antarctic and TV dramas such as The Avengers, The Moonstone and Gunpowder Guy in which future Doctor Who actor Patrick Troughton took the lead role. In the 1960s he switched to directing, taking the helm of classic shows such as The Newcomers and Z Cars.

Barry got his first taste of Doctor Who in 1967 when he directed the six-part serial The Enemy of the World. In 1969, he took over as the show’s producer. This was an exciting time for Doctor Who — the show had a new lead actor, and was being broadcast in colour for the first time. Barry reveals his memories of this era, talking about his relationship with script editor Terrance Dicks and the show’s cast, Jon Pertwee, Katy Manning and Roger Delgado.

Packed with behind-the-scenes gossip, fascinating production detail and wry humour, Who and Me recounts Barry Letts’ journey from struggling actor to successful producer, and the ups and downs of working on Doctor Who during the Jon Pertwee years.

Note:  New edition containing two new chapters: one by Michael Seely taking a look at the remainder of Barry Letts’ career, from the point where the original edition finished; and the second containing an extended interview with Barry discussing his contribution to Doctor Who in detail.
Also available to order on the Fantom website is a “special edition set”, limited to 200 numbered copies, which also comes bundled with a set of 5 postcards and a CD of a 2009 interview with Barry Letts, Terrance Dicks and Katy Manning. However, the book itself appears to be the same, hence is not listed as a separate edition here.
