50 Who : 2009

A book was produced this year of an completed script for a first Doctor, Ian, Barbara and Susan adventure featuring Alexander the Great written by Morris Farhi.

The book was put together by the team behind the fanzine Nothing at the End of the Lane and was an impressive book containing copies of the actual original script as well as specially created radio times listings which are always fun.

I guess it value depends on what price you place on scripts that were not considered good enough to actually be produced, but it is always interesting to learn about and read stories that almost made it to screen as sometimes these can be superior to some of the stories that actually were produced.
