BBC Books have recently confirmed that an exclusive follow up to Doctor Who: The Writer’s Tale, a book collecting emails between both Russell T Davies and Benjamin Cook, detailing the Doctor Who Specials will be released next January. Doctor Who: The Writer’s Tale, originally released by BBC Books in September 2008, detailed every decision that was made by Russell T Davies during the production of series four.
Russell T Davies, famous for spearheading Doctor Who’s revival, has been writing for Doctor Who since it returned in 2005, after an impressive sixteen year hiatus, with Christopher Eccleston as the Doctor and will depart from Doctor Who with the final specials this Winter. Russell T Davies was award an OBE from the Queen of the United Kingdom and Ireland last year for his services to Television Drama.
Below is the official synopsis for the new Doctor Who: The Writer’s Tale.
When The Writer's Tale was published in autumn 2008, it was immediately embraced as a classic. For this extensively revised and updated paperback edition, Russell T Davies and Benjamin Cook continue their candid and in-depth correspondence to take in work on the last of Russell's 2009 specials - and the end of David Tennant's era as The Doctor - while also looking back to the achievements of the first three seasons. With over 300 pages of all-new material, including new photos and original artwork, The Writer's Tale is a fitting tribute to Russell T Davies' phenomenal achievement in bringing Doctor Who back for a new generation of fans.
The revised and updated Doctor Who: The Writer’s Tale will cover The Next Doctor, Planet of the Dead, The Waters of Mars plus the upcoming two part Christmas finale which will see the regeneration of the Tenth Doctor. Random House will publish the revised and updated Doctor Who: The Writer’s Tale on the Twenty First of January next year for the price of £14.99 around the United Kingdom plus Ireland.
