Summary 'Doctor Who' is one of the most enduring British programs over the last 50 years and its success has translated to the U.S., where it has been shown for decades, first on PBS stations and currently on BBC America. This book looks at how the writers and producers of 'Doctor Who' have adapted-and will no doubt continue to do so-various texts to create many episodes throughout the show's history
