Space Helmet for a Cow: The Mad, True Story of Doctor Who - Volume 2: 1990-2013 by Paul Kirkley
Previously on Space Helmet for a Cow...
Chapter 8
(pages 7-21)

Picking up where volume one left off (including the chapter numbering), I wondered how Space Helmet was going to continue its "warts and all" behind-the-scenes narrative into New Who, which is still so recent that one suspects the full behind-the-scenes truth has yet to come out (aside from a few titbits, anyway). Well, the introduction addresses this head on: it notes that it's too soon for people involved to have come clean about everything, and expressly mentions the rumours and hearsay that have been reported by the likes of Private Eye, saying it won't cover them unless they've been verified. Which is fair enough, but surely means Vol.2 can't be to New Who what Vol.1 was to the classic era. I guess we'll have to wait another couple of decades for that book.
