To a 5th Doctor/Peter Davison fan such as myself, this was a gift from the gods. My 11 year old self devoured this book with all the ferocity of a starving lion. I realize it's rather light compared to the heftier, deeper non-fiction works available today...but to my younger self, this behind-the-scenes glimpse into my favourite program was nothing short of heavenly. I cherish my memory of it to this day...
Although it centres on a lesser DW adventure ("The Visitation"), it's actually a pretty complete "making-of" book, giving insight into the process of making the show from conception to answering the fan mail. As a kid, I thought the picture of Superfan David Saunders' Doctor Who room (p. 55) was a thing of awe and majesty. I'll admit that I still do.
