Regular readers may recall news of the first book to be produced by Kasterborous.com – and Ultimate Regeneration will soon be here!
Written and edited by Christian Cawley, ably assisted by Brian Terranova and with contributions from Anthony Dry, Simon Mills, Thomas Willam Spychalski, Gareth Kavanagh and many more, the book tells the real-time critical story of the Russell T Davies era of Doctor Who, from the point of few of a fledgling website of 30-somethings more used to the trappings of Hinchcliffe-era Doctor Who or the wonders of the overlit worlds of John Nathan-Turner’s TARDIS family than the soapy exploits on the Powell Estate and red sex toy aliens on intergalactic starliners.
Ultimate Regeneration features essays, articles, reviews and interviews, with the full story placed into context with a running commentary on the main events in Doctor Who news and the reaction of fandom.
Including 60 Doctor Who reviews from Rose to The End of Time, Part Two, over 30 articles including character, actor and writer profiles and bursting with typical Kasterborous verve, Ultimate Regeneration tells the full story of the 2005-2010 era of Doctor Who, covering 2 Doctors, 5 companions and one visionary showrunner.
Unlike other website to book translations, Ultimate Regeneration consists of an almost 50-50 split of content previously seen online and original material, making this a unique and reliable episode by episode account of the “first impression” feelings of the episode reviewers.
Within, you will find studies on Donna Noble, Rose Tyler and Martha Jones (to name but a few), references to press reaction of various episodes, overarching discussions into each series and quite a lot of original material.
Running to 300 pages, Ultimate Regeneration is intended to the the “ultimate” independent record of 5 full years of Doctor Who.
Release of Ultimate Regeneration is expected to be in the next few weeks, and we will be taking pre-release orders shortly.
