James Chapman

£12.99 | Buy via I.B.Tauris

Inside the TardisJames Chapman’s history of Doctor Who is the definitive book on the world’s longest-running television science fiction series. In this new edition, published to mark the 50th anniversary of everyone’s favourite Time Lord, Chapman has brought the story up to date to include the new series of Doctor Who as well as its spin offs Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures. With new material on the eras of showrunners Russell T. Davies and Steven Moffat, and the latest incarnations of the Doctor in David Tennant and Matt Smith, this updated edition of Inside the Tardis shows how Doctor Who has triumphantly reinvented itself for the twenty-first century. Doctor Who has not only become essential viewing once again, but it is also one of television’s most successful exports. Chapman maps both the continuities with classic Doctor Who, as well as exploring how the series has evolved to take account of new institutional and cultural contexts.

Written by someone who is a life-long Doctor Who fan as well as a historian, this new edition of Inside the Tardis is essential and enjoyable reading for all those interested in both the classic series and its thoroughly modern reincarnation.

‘The best overview of Doctor Who that I have ever read.’
Andrew Pixley, Doctor Who Magazine
‘Chapman’s approach is unpretentious, readable, solidly authoritative and self-consciously anti-theoretical.’
Independent on Sunday
Jon Barnes, Times Literary Supplement
‘A genuinely worthwhile addition to the library-full of books about the series.’
James Chapman is Professor of Film at the University of Leicester. His previous books for I.B.Tauris include Licence To Thrill: A Cultural History of the James Bond Films and Saints and Avengers: British Adventure Series of the 1960s.
