"The long-running popular TV series Doctor Who is, Piers Britton argues, a 'uniquely design intensive text'. The elements of its production design - its sets and props, costumes and make up, special effects and prosthetics - have always been central to Doctor Who's distinctive visual style and the pleasure it gives to its viewers. This visual style is also essential in creating the many different worlds that the Doctor encounters from episode to episode, in addition to the unique aesthetic of each Doctor and the changing design of iconic sets such as the TARDIS, and enemies such as the Daleks and the Cybermen. Piers Britton provides the first in-depth study of Doctor Who's design and the way the show constructs unique visual worlds. Tracing Doctor Who's design history from its inception in 1963 through to the present day, and following its production journey from London to its current home in Cardiff, Britton explores how the show's designers have created settings from Elizabethan England to the end of the universe, the distinctive costumes of the individual Doctors and his companions, and the extraordinary prosthetics of the Doctor's allies and opponents from across the galaxies"
