The series had its roots in British science fiction but grew to take in many other influences: historical drama, Hammer horror, satire, conspiracy thriller, even pantomime." "Kim Newman's comprehensive study follows the Doctor's travels through time and space, placing Doctor Who in the context of science-fiction television, and traces the history of the show through its outstanding stories and its recurring themes, from its highs (Jon Pertwee, Tom Baker) to its lows (K-9, Bonnie Langford, and cancellation) and suggests why the programme has become an enduring television masterpiece and a cultural phenomenon."--Jacket." ;
