The Leekley Bible was the "New series document" (known in the TV industry as "the bible") for a proposed Doctor Who TV series that would have been produced by Amblin Universal in the mid 1990s. It was written by John Leekley.

Publisher's summary Edit

The Leekley Bible was intended to be the starting point of a new Doctor Who series, essentially a reboot of the series reinventing Doctor Who with only the core concepts and mythos intact.

Concepts like the TARDIS remain, as did the names of many Time Lords such as Rassilon and Borusa (though sometimes spelt as "Barusa"). Gallifrey was also mentioned. (REFDoctor Who: Regeneration)
