Cover blurb:
‘The Towers have become appallingly dirty. The whole place is polluted with flesh — living flesh!’

Although the second story in its season, Paradise Towers (1987) was the first in a new era for Doctor Who. It represented a concerted effort to move away from an over-reliance on continuity and towards something more relevant to contemporary viewers.

This Black Archive places it in its wider cultural context and considers what it says about aloof architects and impersonal architecture.

John Toon is the author of the Black Archives on Full Circle and The Impossible Astronaut / Day of the Moon.


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
