The Writer’s Tale 2

The Writer's Tale by Russell T Davies and Benjamin CookThe new edition of Russell T Davies and Benjamin Cook’s The Writer’s Tale is released on January 14th – a paperback release with a massive additional amount of content covering the end of Russell and Davie Tennant’s time on Doctor Who.

Even better – this new release is cheaper than the original if you’re buying on Amazon – £11.04 sounds much better than £18.98 for the hardback, doesn’t it?!

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.

According to The Independent:

Doctor Who fans were also busy pre-ordering Russell T Davies’s Doctor Who: The Writer’s Tale on Amazon after 10.4 million people tuned in to watch David Tennant’s final episode as the BBC’s Time Lord on Friday.

Let’s hope they were buying the right version…
