Unlike other fictional universes, the Doctor Who universe is created solely by fiction. To us, this is a secondary source. Information from this source can only be used in "behind the scenes" sections, or on pages about real world topics.
The Making of a Television Series offered a detailed examination of making Doctor Who. However, in this instance the word series in the title could rightly have been said to be a synonym for serial, since it specifically offered a look at the making of The Visitation
Publisher's summary Edit
