Doctor Who - In the StudioBookmark and Share

Wednesday, 25 April 2018 - Reported by Marcus
Doctor Who - In the Studio - Cover (Credit: Panini) The new Doctor Who Magazine Special Edition, on sale now, tells the story of the series’ sometimes difficult evolution from relatively primitive beginnings to the cutting edge of modern television production.

In the Studio is packed full of all-new features and previously unseen images, this is the ultimate guide to the studio recording and filming of Doctor Who.

In 1963 Sydney Newman and Donald Wilson devised an ambitious concept that would stretch the BBC’s technical resources to the limit. In its earliest days Doctor Who was jeopardised by a fierce dispute over facilities. The programme survived, but never stopped demanding the very best from its studios and dedicated crews.

Highlights include:
  • Sections on all of Doctor Who’s major studios: Lime Grove, Ealing, Riverside, Television Centre, Unit Q2, Upper Boat and Roath Lock
  • How the original TARDIS control room was recreated for Twice Upon a Time
  • A tribute to senior camera supervisor Alec Wheal
  • Exclusive interviews with second-unit director James DeHaviland and vintage camera expert Dicky Howett
  • A guide to Doctor Who’s rehearsal rooms
  • The story behind the black-and-white remake of 2006 episode Tooth and Claw
  • Rare images from the Visual Effects Department’s model stages
Editor Marcus Hearn says:
This DWM Special Edition tells the entire studio history of Doctor Who, from Lime Grove in 1963 through to Roath Lock in 2018. Andrew Pixley’s detailed research is the backbone of this issue, but there are fantastic articles and interviews by lots of other writers too, along with contributions from former producer Philip Hinchcliffe and showrunner Chris Chibnall. Longtime DWM collaborator Derek Handley helped to source some incredible images, while Peri Godbold and Mike Jones designed it all beautifully. Hopefully we’ve been able to contribute something really meaningful to our understanding of how Doctor Who is made.

The Essential Doctor Who: Science and Technology (Credit: Panini)THE ESSENTIAL DOCTOR WHO: SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY

Panini’s lavish series of Doctor Who bookazines continues with Science and Technology.

Ever since the TARDIS was first revealed in 1963, Doctor Who has presented a bewildering array of alien technology and gadgetry. Human scientific knowledge can do nothing to explain the mysteries of the astonishing devices and phenomena that the Doctor takes for granted.

This the first publication devoted to the incredible ideas that the series has made its own. Highlights include a comprehensive guide to the sonic screwdriver, the secrets of the Time Lords and the weaponry of the Doctor’s most dangerous enemies.

Editor Marcus Hearn says
There have been a number of books and other studies looking at how conventional physics relates to Doctor Who. With this bookazine we’ve tried to do something different – this issue celebrates six decades of pseudo-science. It’s packed full of the numerous gadgets, weapons, vehicles and other devices that have been specially created for the series. We’ve never done anything quite like it!
The Essential Doctor Who: Science and Technology is on sale now, price £9.99.
