Cover blurb:
'Here in Paris we know what is right.'

The Massacre (1966) is a serial of disputed authorship, of which no known video copy survives. One of the last of Doctor Who's 'past' stories as originally defined, it was produced during a fractious transitional period. It nevertheless draws on a variety of primary and secondary sources, many never previously acknowledged, to examine religious civil strife in the Paris of 1572 from some surprising angles, and with maturity and complexity.

James Cooray Smith writes on culture for The New Statesman.
