Cat people by Kim Newman( Book )

12 editions published between 1999 and 2009 in English and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Released in 1943, Cat People was the first production from the unit set up by RKO to make low-cost, high-return horror movies. Producer Val Lewton was handed the title and ordered to come up with a film to fit. He and director Jacques Tourneur created an innovative picture about a Serbian emigree in New York (Simone Simon) who is convinced she's suffering from a hereditary curse that will transform her into a panther if her passions are aroused." "Kim Newman positions this 74-minute classic in terms of the horror film genre from which it emerges and against which it rebels. Through close analysis, he teases out the layers of meaning and intent that make this at once a supernatural drama and an unusual psychological study."--Jacket

Doctor Who by Kim Newman( Book )

10 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From 1963 to 1989, for the most part at teatime on Saturdays on BBC1, Doctor Who was a British TV institution. 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
