Note:  A print-on-demand edition (linked via the Lulu logo above) was also released in August 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.

Cover blurb:
'Tomorrow is promised to no one, Doctor, but I insist on my past.'

Hell Bent (2015) twists our expectations as grand villains are reintroduced and then quickly discarded, the Doctor shifts from a heroic figure to an anti-hero, and a familiar scenario plays out with radically different results. The story challenges the Doctor's most paternalistic behaviours, as Clara departs with an origin story equal to his own, and the path is cleared for a radical change in the casting of the 13th Doctor.

Alyssa Franke writes the Whovian Feminism blog.

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 (Doctor Who). But they actually manage it. Treat your bookshelf."
—Doctor Who Magazine
