Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

"This book is a treasury of wit, of truthfulness, and of good sound storytelling sense, and well worth stealing from" (Philip Pullman)

"The Doctor Who Annual for adults" (The Guardian)

"You can douse all the other books about Who in lighter fuel and spark up your Zippo - this is all you need" (SFX)

Présentation de l'éditeur

For this new edition of The Writer's Tale, Russell T Davies and Benjamin Cook expand their in-depth discussion of the creative life of Doctor Who to cover Russell's final year as Head Writer and Executive Producer of the show, as well as his work behind the increasingly successful Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures spin-offs. Candid and witty insights abound throughout two years' worth of correspondence, covering David Tennant's last episodes as the Doctor and the legacy that Russell and David leave behind as a new era of Doctor Who begins.

With over 300 pages of new material, and taking in events from the entire five years since the show's return in 2005, The Writer's Tale: The Final Chapter is the most comprehensive - and personal - account of Doctor Who ever published.

Si vous avez toujours voulu savoir, dans ses moindres détails, comment s'écrit une saison d'une série telle que Doctor Who, ce livre est fait pour vous. Dans une conversation avec Benjamin Cook, Russel T Davies dévoile tout de ses processus d'écriture : comment naissent les idées d'épisodes, comment aborde-t-il l'écriture, quelles contraintes font peser le budget et les effets spéciaux, comment se négocient en coulisse le casting des épisodes? Autant de questions, et bien d'autres encore, auxquelles des réponses concrètes sont apportées par le biais de nombreux exemples issus de la saison 4.
Le livre présente aussi des premiers jets de scénarios de plusieurs épisodes.
Une nouvelle édition doit paraître en janvier 2010 qui rajouetra 300 pages et couvrira les épisodes spéciaux diffusés en 2009 en plus de la saison 4 de 2008.

Format: Broché
En arrivant à la fin du livre, difficle de ressentir autre chose que du respect pour Russell T. Davies.

Loin des discours pré-formatés et insupportables d'hypocrisie ressassés à longueur de temps, l'ex-scénariste en chef du Doctor se livre à la fois sur son travail et sur lui-même, avec une sincérité troublante et totale. L'exercice est pourtant difficile à la base, et pourtant, jamais l'auteur ne tombe dans le pathos ou la mièvrerie.

Loin d'être là pour lui servir la soupe, le journaliste intervieweur Benjamin Cook est un guide de premier choix pour nous faire découvrir, par ses questions souvent pertinentes, l'état d'esprit de l'auteur, à la fois sur son travail, mais aussi sur sa vie en général. On sent une volonté de la part de T. Davies de laisser un témoignage honnête, véritable testament d'une vie et d'un homme qui aura su (et continue encore aujourd'hui) impressionner tant de spectateurs par la qualité de ses oeuvres.

HASH(0x9171ed08) étoiles sur 5 Absolutely Brilliant 29 janvier 2009
Par Leslie Nesbit - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
If you think the description of what this book is about lets you know what you're getting into, you're wrong. Well, half wrong. You do get to understand what a head writer/show runner has to deal with day to day. You even get to read a few of Russell T. Davies' first drafts of the episodes for series 4 of Doctor Who. All Through Emails.
But - You also get to hear his inner most thoughts of procrastination, stress, the absolute passion he has for his characters, (every one of them that he has created) and the passion he has for writing. He talks of writing as if his head never turns off, and he even admits he would be writing whether or not he had a job on a tv show. He brings you into his passion and his excitement when he decides to kill off a character, or when he discusses why it all is for the good of the story.
The other half of the emails are by Benjamin Cook. He asks all the right questions at all the right times. I was almost surprised that when I asked something in my head, he would be right there asking the question and sometimes even asking a better one.
Russell doesn't want it to be a "how you should write" book, but he does teach you that the way you write is just wonderful and the love you have for writing and creating is the most important thing. There was so much advice in this book that I'm sure Russell didn't think he was giving but I'm glad he gave.

HASH(0x9171ed5c) étoiles sur 5 A Master Class for Aspiring and Professional Writers 1 décembre 2008
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
As the author of a book on writing myself (The Musical Theatre Writer's Survival Guide), and as a fellow very hard on books about writing (I don't think they're worth much unless they're by people who actually do the kind of writing they're expounding on for a living), I promise you, this one is worthwhile. For anyone who tells or wants to tell stories in any print or performance medium.

Though the book collects the seemingly unedited, largely unexpurgated email dialogue between Russell T Davies and journalist Benjamin Cook -- and as such may instill the apprehension that it will be a long-winded ramble (the print is small and it is a BIG, THICK book, and a coffee-table edition at that) -- it turns out to be a breathless and often un-put-downable read, akin to any of the classical philosophical exchanges of literature between mentor and student. Davies, despite being a telly populist at heart, is among the brightest, most articulate dramatists in the English speaking world, with a staggering analytical perception I'd liken only to a very few (such as Sondheim and Stoppard) and his thoughts and observations are passionate, funny, touching, instructive and provocative throughout. He makes it clear that he doesn't mean for his process to be regarded as any kind of template for everybody's process, but as with any great writer, the acquaintance is still well worth making. And there are full scripts represented too. Not only that, but among the profuse illustrations are many by Davies himself, who seems to be as gifted a cartoonist as he is a wordsmith.

Caveats? One, and it may be a big one. I'm not sure how well the text of this book will translate to anyone who is not at least passing familiar with Davies' new millennium renovation of DOCTOR WHO in general, and his work on season four (the primary launching pad for this book's ruminations) in particular. Not that it isn't all quite comprehensible -- but I wonder if it will resonate as meaningfully to one who isn't already an aficionado. It's probably worth at least a trip to the public library to find out; whereupon if it passes muster, I would absolutely recommend shelling out the shekels to add it to yours.

HASH(0x91724054) étoiles sur 5 Great Book - Confusing Listing 13 juillet 2010
Par Barbara J. Wertz - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
As many other reviewers have told us, this is a great book, especially for fans of "Doctor Who" and/or Russell T. Davies. Davies is one of the best writers in any medium and it's fascinating to have a behind-the-scenes tour of his creation of 2+ seasons of "Doctor Who" scripts (with a little "Torchwood" on the side.)

However, Amazon's listing is a bit confusing. The current listing makes it appear that there are two editions (hardcover and paperback) of the same book, which is not the case. The hardcover edition (THE WRITER'S TALE, published in 2008) is the beginning of the correspondence between Davies and Cook, dated between the winter of 2007 and the summer of 2008, and includes samples of scripts which were attached to that correspondence. The paperback (THE WRITER'S TALE: THE FINAL CHAPTER, published in 2010) includes all of the correspondence from the hardcover edition but eliminates the script samples. (They are moved to their website [..].) It picks up where the correspondence left off in the hardcover edition and continues till the summer of 2009. The illustrations overlap to a certain extent but not entirely. Oddly enough, Amazon's UK site makes this distinction perfectly clear.

Personally, I'm glad I have both editions, though I could wish that THE FINAL CHAPTER was also available in hardcover to make a nice pair. And what I would REALLY like is for Mr. Davies to dig into his memory and tell us about what happened before the books, all the way back to when he first started work on the resurrection (or is it regeneration) of "Doctor Who."

HASH(0x9171ef30) étoiles sur 5 Incredible insight into the creative process behind Dr Who Season 4 7 décembre 2008
Par Tony C. Hsieh - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This textbook-sized tome (512 page of 2 column printed in some relatively small font) contains correspondence (emails) between Russell and Benjamin (the author) as the development of season 4 begins.

These e-mails radiate personality and huge insights into where the seeds of ideas germinated into the final product and some seeds just withered (i.e. Season 4's companion called "Penny").

Though I shouldn't be, I am amazed by the volume of Russell's text and how he seems so fearless and, at the same time, racked with doubt. You do feel the power of his love for television medium and his completely driven nature.

The writing process is something that cannot be described with a few pages or even a book but this book feels like it pushes around the edges so completely, you feel like you getting a glimmer of the forces that defines the product of the writing process.

Now, I agree that you should really be versed with Doctor Who TV lore and the universe created within the last 4 years - and more than a passing understanding of English colloquialisms. Just like the TV show, you will feel more impact if you understand the body of work that leads up to the present.

It is just great fun to peek into Russell's mind to see how he created one of the most enjoyable shows on TV (for me at least).

Now, I _wish_ they had also done this with Joss Whedon while he was doing Buffy, Angel and/or Firefly.

*sigh* Meanwhile, I'll be sated with this one.

I admit, I'm a Doctor Who fan. I wear Chuck Taylor's exclusively. I wear bow ties. I own a sonic screwdriver.

I'm also a writer. And even if I'd never heard of Doctor Who(?), I'd have to give this book five stars and wish for five more.

Pulling from a series of emails between the show's Executive Producer and Head Writer, Russel T Davies, and journalist Benjamin Cook, "The Writer's Tale" is a must-read, must-own, must-always-read-again treasure trove of insight and advice for any writer, especially if that writer wants to pen scripts for film and television. It digs deep into what it means to shape the destiny of a character who influences millions.

I'd recommend it to any Whovian, anyone who loves to peek behind the scenes, and especially anyone who puts pen to paper or fingers to keyboard and makes worlds issue forth from the ether.
