Rob sits down and talks to Paul Hayes, author of the forthcoming book, The Long Game - 1996-2003: The Inside Story of How the BBC Brought Back Doctor Who.

Drawing on more than thirty new interviews and extensive research, The Long Game is the story of the conflicts and setbacks in bringing back the series, during a transformative time for the BBC. It’s a story told by those who were there, including BBC One Controllers Lorraine Heggessey and Alan Yentob, drama bosses Julie Gardner, Jane Tranter and Mal Young, BBC Worldwide executives Rupert Gavin and Mike Phillips, and BBC Films head David Thompson – many speaking in depth for the first time about the part they played in the attempts to bring back Doctor Who.
