More > during a fractious, transitional period in the series’ evolution, it nevertheless deals with the topic of religious civil strife in the Paris of 1572 with maturity and complexity, and from a variety of angles, many surprising for a tea-time adventure serial. This Black Archive title looks at The Massacre both in terms of its place in Doctor Who’s ongoing production and public reception, and as a piece of historical fiction intimately concerned with Christianity which draws on a variety of primary and secondary sources, many of them never previously acknowledged in discussion of the serial.< Less

More > genuine – but they’re also brand new. Soon the Doctor is following a trail back to 1866 and then to the Dalek home planet of Skaro.

Paperback: $9.56
Prints in 3-5 business days
One of the most densely complex stories in Doctor Who to this day, Ghost Light (1989) is a fast- paced production where every shot and every line has meaning, often more than one. As the last story... More > produced in the original 26-year run, it is the true antecedent of the modern incarnation of the series, both in style and in its focus on the companion’s development.

The Ambassadors of Death By LM Myles
Paperback: $9.42

Fear alone is enough to warp good... More > intentions into horrifying situations, and the enemy is not the monster without, but within our own characters.

The Mind Robber By Andrew Hickey
Paperback: $9.43
Prints in 3-5 business days
‘We obey our creator. That is all that can be expected of any character, unless the Master bids us otherwise.’ Season 6 of Doctor Who was a time of transition and experimentation, with a... More > production team wanting to move from one formula – the base under siege that had defined the previous two seasons – and toward another – the more grounded stories of season 7. No story in the season was more experimental, though, than its second, The Mind Robber. The debut of arguably the series’ most visually inventive director, David Maloney, the story was beset with production problems, including the last-minute addition of an extra episode and the sickness of a principal cast member; yet the creative solutions to these problems lifted the final story from a run- of-the-mill piece of whimsy into one of the series’ finest moments.< Less
Image of the Fendahl By Simon Bucher-Jones
Paperback: $8.53
Prints in 3-5 business days
Image of the Fendahl (1977) is a fusion of the last great hurrah of the Gothic years of Doctor Who, before Graham Williams’ changes really began to bite, with the colder post-Gothic tradition... More > drawn from Nigel Kneale and HP Lovecraft. A priory, a haunted wood, a village coven… a scientific investigation that reaches back 12 million years in time and hundreds of millions of miles away in space. Writer Chris Boucher (also responsible for 'The Face of Evil' and 'The Robots of Death') builds on his successes with a story that functions as a human drama, a scientific puzzle, a horror story, and a masterpiece of unease. Building its audience by nearly three million from episode one to episode four, this story is one of the great classics of the series, and still works as an effective adventure drama for a modern audience.< Less
