Elisabeth Sladen: The Autobiography


Aurum Press have announced the publication of Elisabeth Sladen's autobiography, due out later this year. Read the details below:
Prior to her death in April this year, Elisabeth Sladen, the actress who entertained millions of children and their parents as Sarah Jane Smith in Doctor Who and The Sarah Jane Adventures, had been working on a memoir. An account of her career on stage and screen and an insider’s view of the world’s longest-running science fiction series, the book had been completed in draft form but illness prevented Elisabeth from finishing it.

With the support of her husband, Brian Miller, and daughter, Sadie, Aurum will now publish Elisabeth’s memoir in November this year. A tribute to an actress whose most famous character became a hero and a role model for generations of young fans, the book traces Elisabeth’s story from humble beginnings in post-war Liverpool, through a joyful career in the theatre, to unexpected fame alongside Doctors Jon Pertwee and Tom Baker. In the process it explores the far from glamorous realities of filming in TV’s golden age, the strange and wonderful world of Doctor Who fandom, and what it was like to return to the show over thirty years after Sarah Jane first set foot in the TARDIS.
Elisabeth Sladen: The Autobiography
will be published Nov 7th, RRP £20

Thanks to Aurum

FRAZER HINES autobiography


Frazer Hines is one of the UK's most charismatic stars of stage and screen. From his early days as a child actor in films such as X The Unknown, and appearances in Emergency Ward 10 and Coronation Street, Frazer became a household name playing the time-travelling Scot, Jamie McCrimmon, alongside Patrick Troughton in the BBC's cult series Doctor Who. In 1972 he was cast as Joe Sugden in the fledgeling soap opera Emmerdale Farm, and became the housewife's favourite farmer for over two decades.

In this compelling and funny book, Frazer reveals his own thoughts and feelings when faced with stardom at an early age, the pressure of being an early 'media celebrity', his love of horses, cricket and women....

This new edition of Hines Sight is being published by Frazer Hines himself, with the editorial and publishing assistance of David J Howe and Sam Stone. David is a writer of over 30 books and editorial director of Telos Publishing and brings many years experience of writing, editing and publishing to this new title. Sam is an author and poet and has worked with several editors on her own writing.

'He writes with such humour and passion that you can’t put the book down.'
