Note:  A print-on-demand edition (linked via the Lulu logo above) was released in Sep 2019 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:
‘After all, he does have an interesting story to tell.’

How do the ideas of HG Wells — his socialism, his feminism — haunt the often maligned Timelash (1985)? Do Wells and Doctor Who fall short of their ideals in the same ways? Can idealism succeed in a Doctor Who script-edited by a profound cynic? How does power speak on Karfel? And is the Borad vegan? By asking fresh questions, this Black Archive allows viewers to see Timelash in a different light.

Phil Pascoe is the author of the Big Finish Doctor Who audio ...ish.

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
