More To The Writer’s Tale…

Amazon are listing a new edition of the Russell T Davies and Benjamin Cook’s Doctor Who: The Writer’s Tale – a paperback release with additional content…

Doctor Who: The Writer's TaleListed at £14.99, the item is set to be published on Jan 21st 2010 – here’s the description:

When The Writer’s Tale was published in autumn 2008, it was immediately embraced as a classic. For this extensively revised and updated paperback edition, Russell T Davies and Benjamin Cook continue their candid and in-depth correspondence to take in work on the last of Russell’s 2009 specials – and the end of David Tennant’s era as The Doctor – while also looking back to the achievements of the first three seasons.

With over 300 pages of all-new material, including new photos and original artwork, The Writer’s Tale is a fitting tribute to Russell T Davies’ phenomenal achievement in bringing Doctor Who back for a new generation of fans.

Over 300 pages of new material? That’s a considerable amount of new content, well over half the length of the original.

Yet this revision is listed as having 768 pages – does this indicate material has been cut from the original book?
