In 1963 Sydney Newman and Donald Wilson devised an ambitious concept that would stretch the BBC's technical resources to the limit. In its earliest days Doctor Who was jeopardised by a fierce dispute over facilities. The programme survived, but never stopped demanding the very best from its studios and dedicated crews.
The latest Doctor Who Magazine Special Edition tells the story of the series' sometimes difficult evolution from relatively primitive beginnings to the cutting edge of modern television production.
Packed full of all-new features and previously unseen images, this is the ultimate guide to the studio recording and filming of Doctor Who.
