DOCTOR WHO is the world’s longest-running science fiction
television series. Each handbook provides both a broad overview
and a detailed analysis of one phase of the programme’s history.
David Segal is the second Doctor to take the helm of the
TARDIS for The Doctor Who Audio Dramas. Coming into
the role only two years after the series premiered with Vincent
Savage, the show was still considered an afternoon hobby,
nothing to be taken too seriously.
Of course, that didn’t take into account the plans that the cast
and crew had.
This book is an in-depth study of David Segal’s tenure as the
Doctor, including a profile of the actor, a critical summary of
each story in which he starred, and a scene-by-scene
examination of the 24h season story, THE PARADOX. This
book owes its thanks to David J. Howe and the other authors
of previous Handbooks whose tireless work continues to
enlighten us about this enigmatic Time Lord.
