Note: A print-on-demand edition (linked via the Lulu logo above) was released in May 2018 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.
'Nothing serious, nothing political...'
Combining apparently unlinked plots into a single satirical adventure story, and uniting a producer-director keen to push the boundaries of the electronic studio with a writer who delights in conjuring worlds from tiny details, Carnival of Monsters (1973) works on various levels for its different audiences. This Black Archive draws on surviving scripts, storylines and production files to explore its roots as a story, its thematic resonances and linguistic quirks.
Ian Potter is a TV historian and a prolific author of fiction and drama.

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