Cover blurb:
‘Don’t you see? You are the creators.’

Does killing a killer mean you are no better than they are? What makes a being a false god? In this Black Archive, James McGrath explores how The Battle of Ranskoor Av Kolos (2018) tackles these and other important questions in the realms of ethics and theology, as well as wrapping up the season’s story arcs involving the Doctor’s new ‘fam’ and the Stenza.

Dr James F McGrath is Clarence L Goodwin Chair in New Testament Language and Literature at Butler University, author of Theology and Science Fiction, co-editor of Time and Relative Dimensions in Faith, and editor of Religion and Science Fiction.

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."
