It was the birth of an institution. Doctor Who: The Unfolding Text is the first serious analysis of the BBCs longest-running fictional programme. Based on interviews with artists and production staff involved with the programme since 1963, it investigates how industrial, institutional, narrative, professional and other forces originally existing outside Doctor Who have operated to shape the series.

It examines the programmes origins in the BBCs attempt to compete with commercial television, and its ability to draw on a variety of codes of performance as well as a range of genres. The reason for Doctor Whos continuing popularity and success, argue the authors, is its flexible structure — time can range over millions of years, the Doctors companions can be replaced and even the Doctor himself can change form.Doctor Who: The Unfolding Text elucidates through practical demonstration analytical approaches for the student and teacher of media studies, offers valuable information for the fan, and provides intriguing insight for the general reader into the adventures of televisions most famous time-lord.
