The Writer’s Tale Second Edition

BBC Books have released details about an updated and revised version of the previously released book entitled, “Doctor Who: The Writer’s Tale”, which was released last year. The book is written by Russell T Davies, the head writer and executive producer of Doctor Who. The updated book will include information on the 2009 Doctor Who specials. You can see the cover for the first edition below along with the synopsis for the second edition.


When The Writer's Tale was published in autumn 2008, it was immediately embraced as a classic. For this extensively revised and updated paperback edition, Russell T Davies and Benjamin Cook continue their candid and in-depth correspondence to take in work on the last of Russell's 2009 specials - and the end of David Tennant's era as The Doctor - while also looking back to the achievements of the first three seasons. With over 300 pages of all-new material, including new photos and original artwork, The Writer's Tale is a fitting tribute to Russell T Davies' phenomenal achievement in bringing Doctor Who back for a new generation of fans.

The Writer's Tale second edition will be released on the 21st of January next year across the United Kingdom and Ireland at the recommended retail price of £14.99. The book will be released in paperback and includes 768 pages. The first edition of the book is on sale now in hardback.
