It just one of those moments of cosmic alignment or at the very least a delicious slice of serendipity but the latest volume of Doctor Who A Complete History is an edition that covers the first two episodes. Trying to explain just where all that telly magic germinated is a bit like catching stellar lightning in a test tube and studying it to break down its imaginative components. Pretty damn difficult but stunning all the same.
There is stuff in this volume which will just make you sigh. It is delightful.
Photographs you have never seen before and anecdotes as familiar as old songs you never get tired of listening too. They are waiting between the covers of this book. You can almost smell that cold night on 23rd November 1963 when it all began.
