Out Now: Doctor Who Chronicles – 1975

Quickly on the heels of the previous volume comes the second in a new series of bookazines from the makers of Doctor Who Magazine: Doctor Who Chronicles, this time looking at 1975.

Tom Baker’s debut came as a shock to some critics and even regular viewers, but his charismatic portrayal of the Doctor soon propelled the series to new heights of popularity. In 1975, Doctor Who attracted both critical acclaim and controversy in stories that many regard as the benchmark for everything that would follow.

This 116-page bookazine includes newly discovered images and all-new features, like:

  • A summary of 1975’s most significant events in the Doctor Who universe (both on and off screen).
  • Highlights of the memorabilia released in 1975.
  • Tom Baker’s column for Reveille!
  • Dr Where and other spoofs.
  • The story behind the ‘lost’ radio interview with Tom Baker, Elisabeth Sladen, and Ian Marter.
  • Doctor Who in the popular press.
  • Archive rarities, including director Christopher Barry’s notebooks, the BBC’s Audience Research Reports, concept artwork from The Sontaran Experiment and unused props created for Pyramids of Mars.
  • The Doctor Who and Dalek annuals.

  • Special effects and production techniques.
