Blackpool Revisited

Your journey back to Blackpool starts here…

Blackpool Revisited is the follow-up to the hugely popular Blackpool Remembered. This new book charts the history of Doctor Who exhibitions in Blackpool – the original exhibition which ran from 1974 to 1985 and David Boyle’s Doctor Who Museum, which ran from 2004 to 2009. Of course we don’t just leave it there – we explore a wide range of connected and related items, times and places. With an exclusive foreword by Lorne Martin, like its predecessor, this ebook is available to download for free.

The reaction to the first book inspired us to do another – this time even bigger, at over 600 pages, with content from over 90 contributors. As well as more memories and nostalgia from the original exhibition, we take a detailed journey through the Doctor Who Museum, alongside a look at the life of its curator (and Dapol founder), the late David Boyle. We also look at the Blackpool Illuminations, Edwin Hall Dalek rides, Sevans Models, Dapol toys, the Whomobile, interviews with artists Andrew Skilleter, Rod Vass and Graham Potts plus much more!
