'Doctor Who: Regeneration' takes an in-depth look at the seven-year struggle from cancelling the series to develop it as a US co-production. It offers a fascinating glimpse of the politics of television in the 1990s. Throughout this dramatic saga, one man's name was inextricably linked with this attempted rebirth: Philip Segal. In collaboration with Gary Russell, Philip pulls all the threads together to weave a fascinating tale of behind-the-scenes trauma.
Lavishly illustrated with rare photographs, design drawings and production paintings, and including aborted story treatments which didn't quite make it, this is perhaps the most detailed diary of a television production every assembled.
