The Genesis of Doctor Who, BBC Archive

The BBC has published a series of documents from 1962 and 1963 regarding the creation of Doctor Who. Here's their blurb:

Explore the origins of a TV legend with this collection of documents and images. It's now the number one family favourite, but 'Doctor Who' had a difficult birth, emerging from the imagination of some of BBC Drama's top minds.

Here, we tell the story of the creation of 'Doctor Who' from the very beginning, starting with a report on the possibility of making science fiction for television and leading up to the moment a new drama series is announced in the pages of 'Radio Times'.

They form a nice bookend with the recent Russell T Davies scripts that were published to promote The Writer's Tale
