August Books 12) Talkback - The Sixties

12) Talkback: The Unofficial and Unauthorised Doctor Who Interview Book - Volume One: The Sixties, ed. Stephen James Walker

150 pages of interviews with people who had been involved with the making of Doctor Who in the 1960s. Some are more enlightening than others - the most interesting (slightly to my surprise) are the reflections of designers Barry Newbery, Raymond Cusick and John Wood. I wished others had been a bit more probing, especially since, sadly, many of the interviewees are no longer available. Only two actors are included - Anneke Wills and Peter Purves. Most of Dennis Spooner's anecdotes are disproved by the footnotes. A useful resource for fans of this period of Doctor Who, but not really a casual read for people not already familiar with the subject matter.
