Mark Helprin’s legions of committed readers cherish his undying novels and brief tales, that are uplifting of their conviction of the goodness and resilience of the human spirit.

1), he gives very similar dialogue to the mentor figure of the Doctor rather than to Rose Tyler herself. This shifts the emotional and narrative balance from one where an outsider is entreated to help – The Grand’s Esme Harkness is a former prostitute who, despite her wealth and social standing, is not accepted by the moral guardians of the upper classes – to one where an outsider, the Doctor, proffers the promise of transcendence to Rose. The key storylines of mentoring and longing characteristic of The Grand and Doctor Who also diverge in instructive ways.

The BBC is committed to increasing programme production outside the M25 … BBC Cymru Wales has been notably successful in supplying the ‘THE RUSSELL t. DAVIES ERA’ network with memorable programming across a range of genres. 76 The impression given here is that new Who was part of a slate of successful networked dramas, that is, dramas supplied to the BBC for nationwide broadcast.
