Ninth Doctor

Ultimate Regeneration Update

With the 50th anniversary coming up, it’s the perfect time to revisit those golden days when Doctor Who returned to our screens in 2005. And what better companion than Kasterborous’ Ultimate Regeneration?

The 277-page book is available on Kindle from Amazon for the amazingly low price of £1.74, while the paperback copy can be purchased for as low as £4.99. It covers the entire Russell T. Davies era, from Rose, starring the Christopher Eccleston’s Ninth Doctor to his departure in The Parting of the Ways; from David Tennant’s Tenth Doctor making his first full debut in The Christmas Invasion to 2009/2010’s epic The End of Time, which saw a massive overhaul for the entire show.

Ultimate Regeneration is edited by Christian Cawley (expect typos (OI! – Ed)), and written by a plethora of regular (and sometimes irregular) contributors. You’ll find reviews, opinion pieces (naturally) and reactions to all the latest developments (of yesteryear, anyhow) – and if you’re really lucky, there might just be a follow up festering in the mind of your occasionally-esteemed editor.

It’s a little time capsule that’s bigger on the inside.

The show’s return was first announced by Lorraine Heggessy in September 2003, and the show has, obviously, gone from success to success. Alongside Strictly Come Dancing, it is surely the BBC’s biggest and most-cherished series.

If you like this site, Ultimate Regeneration is the perfect book for you. If you don’t like this site… well, we know where you live.
