Cover blurb:
'The most important leaf in human history.'

The Rings of Akhaten (2013) is a subtle and sophisticated engagement with the contemporary New Atheist movement, critiquing its more imperialist and patriarchal assumptions alongside those of Doctor Who itself. Broadcast in the series' 50th year, it offers a feminised vision of the future with the potential for another 50 years' worth of places to see. This Black Archive includes an interview with, and additional material by, director Farren Blackburn.

William Shaw is a writer, blogger and poet, published in Doctor Who Magazine and The Oxford Culture Review.


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
