This was undoubtedly groundbreaking in 1994 as the first professional Doctor Who short story collection. I would have read it in 1996 or 1997 as a teenager, and I don't have any recollection of it at all. That's not too surprising, because while the authors should be applauded for giving it a stab, and even throwing in two or three stories with pretty challenging approaches, it's just not terribly memorable overall - and the wraparound material isn't especially cohesive, either, which sinks it down even further. The best stories are Vanessa Bishop's "The Straw that Broke the Camel's Back" (Third Doctor) and Paul Cornell's "Lackaday Express" (Fifth Doctor), each of them probably representing the best traits of traditional and radical Who writing at the time. Jim Mortimore's "The Book of Shadows" (First Doctor) is worth a look, too, presaging a lot of his later experimental work.… (mere)

Het was alweer zo'n vijf jaar geleden dat de destijds zesentwintig jaar lopende Britse televisieserie Doctor Who was gestopt en dit boek uitkwam over de jaren zeventig van deze serie. Dat de serie ruim tien jaar later weer opnieuw met succes leven ingeblazen zou gaan worden, was toen zeker niet voorzien.

In dit boek komen uitgebreid de afleveringen uit de jaren zeventig aan bod. Zowel inhoud als het tot stand komen van de verhalen en eventuele moeilijkheden zoals bijvoorbeeld stakingen tijdens het produceren van de uitzendingen worden omschreven. Dit alles geflankeerd met foto's van voor en achter de schermen. Schrijvers, producers, componisten en dergelijken worden ook nog eens in het geheel meegenomen.

En natuurlijk wordt ook een apart hoofdstuk aan Jon Pertwee en een aan Tom Baker besteed, de twee Doctors uit de jaren zeventig. Hoe zij uitgekozen werden voor de rol en wat verder bekend was van hun carrière. De companions van de Doctors komen allemaal nog een keer voor het voetlicht in een eigen gezamenlijk hoofdstuk.
De laatste hoofdstukken gaan over alles rondom film, musical en toneelstuk dat wel en niet van de grond is gekomen. En ook wat er allemaal is geproduceerd aan singles, boeken, tijdschriften, strips, bordspelen, batches, snoep, puntenslijpers en wat je al niet kunt bedenken.

Het enige dat ik vervelend vond is de opmaak van het boek. Het is al vrij groot waardoor het redelijk onhandelbaar is. Als er nu grote foto's waren afgedrukt kon ik dat nog begrijpen maar de foto's zijn eerder te klein dan te groot. En dan is er ook nog op bijna elke bladzijde aan de zijkant een kader waarin extra informatie wordt weergegeven naast de doorlopende tekst. Ik houd sowieso niet van kaders midden in een tekst omdat ik dan niet weet wanneer dat te gaan lezen. Het onderbreekt het verhaal maar ik wil ook niets missen.

Als groot fan van de serie over het algemeen een feest der herkenning en daarmee weer wegdromend bij al die avonturen van de Doctor. Maar ook realiserend hoe een enorme onderneming het is om een televisieserie te maken door wat er allemaal bij komt kijken.

Surprising to read that this was the very first anthology of Doctor Who short stories, published back in 1994 (other than the various annuals and fan publications). There is a supposed framing narrative of the Seventh Doctor visiting a California psychic to get readings of objects from his pockets, thus providing the stories, but it is not quite necessary enough to be convincing. Some contributors have since gone on to great things; some have disappeared completely. My favourite was Jim Mortimore's 'The Book of Shadows', about Barbara Wright marrying one of Alexander the Great's generals and ruling Egypt - particularly interesting to come to this so soon after Farewell Great Macedon which has a very similar theme. Also I gave a cheer for David Auger's 'The Golden Door' which features Dodo, though it is not very special otherwise… (mere)
