Mac Books

The seminal Making of Doctor Who was published in 1972. Its co-author was Malcolm Hulke, a man who divided his career between writing episodes of television series and compiling guide books…

A publicity shot of Patrick Troughton as the Doctor on the set of The War Games, the 1969 serial written by Hulke and Dicks.

The late Malcolm ‘Mac’ Hulke is remembered as one of Doctor Who’s most significant scriptwriting talents of the late 1960s and early 70s – and as the author of many of the very best Target Books novelisations. Alongside the series’ then-script editor, his protégé-turnedcollaborator Terrance Dicks, Hulke co-wrote The War Games (1969), which at last revealed who the Doctor really was (a Time Lord), and why he spent his time messing about in the fourth and fifth dimensions (he’d stolen a TARDIS, and left his home planet in search of kicks). He invented the Silurians, the sleeping Earth reptiles deposed by Man, and brought social and political subtext to the Doctor’s adventures, too – exploring, for example, xenophobia in the Silurians stories, and Cold War sabre-rattling in Frontier in Space (1973).

The first edition of Malcom Hulke and Terrance Dicks’ seminal book The Making of Doctor Who.

About Doctor Who Magazine

The latest Special Edition of Doctor Who Magazine is devoted to the many non-fiction books based on the series. This comprehensive guide traces the history of the series’ reference works, from the very first episode guides compiled by Doctor Who story editors for their colleagues in the 1960s, to the fanzines of the 1970s, the first authorised books based on the series and the plethora of books available today. Exclusive interviews, behind-the- scenes features and numerous rare photographs tell the whole story, from the black-and-white days of Doctor Who to the 2017 series starring Peter Capaldi.
