In this study of a television institution--the first to draw extensively on the full riches of the BBC Written Archives--James Chapman explores the history of Doctor Who from its origins to the present day. He shows how the series has evolved to meet changing institutional and cultural contexts, while retaining its quirky, eccentric and distinctively British characteristics. And he demonstrates how the production history of the series has allowed it to renew and refresh its format in response to developments in the wider world of science fiction.
