Cover blurb:
'Mr. Saxon does like a pretty face'

The culmination of a complex season arc, The Sound of Drums / Last of the Time Lords (2007) include many themes that move Doctor Who into darker territory. This Black Archive discusses the representation of Lucy Saxon and Martha Jones, and the reinvention of the Master as an embodiment of toxic masculinity. James Mortimer explores the show's mythos, and asks how much the format is changed and challenged by these episodes.

James Mortimer is a writer from Essex, and has been a Doctor Who fan since the show returned in 2005.


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."
