The Unofficial and Unauthorised Guide to Doctor Who 2006
Picking up where Back to the Vortex left off, Second Flight continues the story of the development of 21st Century Doctor Who as David Tennant takes over the TARDIS from Christopher Eccleston and embarks on a 2005 Christmas special (‘The Christmas Invasion’) and a new series of adventures in time and space with Rose Tyler (Billie Piper), featuring Noel Clarke as Mickey and Camille Coduri as Jackie Tyler.
Second Flight reveals the background to the series, from the announcements, to the press releases, the casting calls, the highs and lows – and the return of the dreaded Cybermen.
The book also features detailed analysis of the new adventures, facts and figures, and exclusive review commentary from an international panel of writers and critics.
