Cover blurb:
‘Oh, you sexy thing!’

With its fantastical imagery and its child’s eye view of the Doctor, The Eleventh Hour (2010) is a bold reinvention of a series that was radically reimagined only five years previously. Drawing on elements of farce, fandom and fairytale, The Eleventh Hour’s games with the audience’s perceptions and expectations lay the groundwork for ideas that would play out during the whole of new showrunner Steven Moffat’s time with Doctor Who.

Jon Arnold wrote The Black Archive #1: Rose and The Black Archive #10: Scream of the Shalka.

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
