Note:  A print-on-demand edition (linked via the Lulu logo above) was released in February 2017 to allow Australia/NZ readers to order the book with much cheaper postage costs. It is identical to the original version, except for having a glossy cover instead of the original's matt cover.

Cover blurb:
'Why is it up to you to save us? That's quite a God complex you have there.'

Drawing deftly on sources from the Theseus myth to Nineteen Eighty-Four and The Shining, The God Complex (2011) expands a one-line brief about a shifting, labyrinthine hotel into a tragic commentary on the Doctor's fallibility and Amy's misplaced faith. Unsettling, disorientating and frankly terrifying, Toby Whithouse's story considers fear, belief and the series' fundamental question: Who is the Doctor? Is he a hero, or simply 'a madman in a box'?

Paul Driscoll is a regular writer for You and Who and Doctor Who Worldwide, and contributed two stort stories to Seasons of War.

THE BLACK ARCHIVE:
Book-length looks at single Doctor Who stories from 1963 to the present day

"A grandly ambitious thing to attempt with something as exhaustively detailed as (Who). But they actually manage it. Treat your bookshelf."
—Doctor Who Magazine
