The Man Who Thought Outside The Box: The Life and Times of Doctor Who Creator Sydney Newman

Exactly where did the idea of Doctor Who come from? What did Canadian Sydney Newman do that changed British culture forever?

We can trace the show’s origins back to a BBC report on the development of a science-fiction serial in the early 1960’s, but Sydney had been kicking the idea around a long time before he came to England.

Travel back into the past and catch a glimpse of THE MAN WHO influenced some of the greatest writers and directors of all time, and whose legacy lives on today, 100 years after he was born.

    Im sorry but that cover is just terrible. The cutout of the picture is bad, the varying quality is jarring, and I’m really not a fan of the font (and the change in font between the title and the author name).
