The Doctor Who Production Diary of John Nathan Turner out today as digital edition

The Production Diary of John Nathan Turner compiled by Richard Molesworth, published by Telos Publishing is out this month, and available from selected retailers today as an eBook, described as a fascinating account of one of Doctor Who’s most turbulent periods.
