|Doctor Who: Engaging with the Critical Community
||[Mar. 10th, 2011|10:05 am]
Okay, so I've got easily to hand:|
- "Timeless Adventures: How Doctor Who Conquered TV"
- "The Unsilent Library: Essays on the Russell T. Davies Era of the New Doctor Who"
And probably a couple of others lurking on a shelf somewhere.
Are there other related works which people might like to recommend? I'm thinking of critical and/or academic work, rather than fan-autobiographies, scripts, shooting notes and the like.
I highly recommend Time and Relative Dissertations in Space
, edited by David Butler.
Not quite as highly recommended but still good
: Triumph of a Time Lord
, by Matt Hills.
I'm afraid I was disappointed
by Timeless Adventures
there's been an explosion of work recently. As well as The Unsilent Library, other collections of papers include Burdge, Burke and Larsen, The Mythological Dimensions of Doctor Who, Garner, Beattie and McCormack, Impossible Worlds, Impossible Things, and Hansen Ruminations, Peregrinations and Regenerations. Mellor and Earl, New Dimensions of Doctor Who appears stuck in editorial hell - work started ahead of our volume, and it's still not out yet. There is at least one other collection on the way.
I hightly recommend the Matt Hills book, and Kim's Newman's BFI book on Doctor Who is also worth reading. And look out for Graham Sleight's The Doctor's Monsters later this year.
