Cover blurb:
'The army of the dead will save the land of the living.'

The two-part story Dark Water / Death in Heaven (2014) draws inspiration from its broadcast between Halloween and Remembrance Day to explore themes of death, bereavement and the afterlife. It gives the most radical twist yet to a much-reinvented villain, yet faithfully recreates an iconic shot from the 1960s. After the pyrotechnics of the 50th anniversary celebrations, it takes Doctor Who further than ever into the realm of the metaphysical.

Philip Purser-Hallard is a novelist and critic, and edits The Black Archive.
