The Long Game: trailerBookmark and Share

Ten Acre Films have released a trailer for their forthcoming book The Long Game, by Paul Hayes.

The book looks at what happened within the BBC to take Doctor Who from the aftermath of the TV Movie in 1996 to the recommissioning of the series in 2003, and includes material from more than thirty new interviews – audio clips from three of which are heard in the new trailer; Lorraine Heggessey, who was the Controller of BBC One when Doctor Who was recommissioned; Mal Young, who was the BBC’s Controller of Continuing Drama Series at the time; and Young’s former number two and Head of Development, Patrick Spence, who held the BBC’s first meeting with Russell T Davies about potentially writing Doctor Who in late 1998, and who tells his side of that story for the first time in the book.
