Cover blurb:
Adventures Across Space and Time brings together foundational writing about Doctor Who with newly-commissioned work addressing contemporary debates in the Whoniverse.

Doctor Who holds a unique place in the history of television and fandom: it is the longest running science-fiction show and its fan communities have tracked cultural changes over its 60 years. Adventures Across Space and Time presents classic academic work by leading scholars including John Fiske, Henry Jenkins, John Tulloch and Matt Hills, but also features writings by fans, including those who went on to become associated with the show, like Steven Moffat and Peter Capaldi. New pieces focus on issues and debates around queer fandom, the ‘wokeness’ of the Doctor, social media, activism, questions of race and sexuality in relation to the show, and much more.

This innovative anthology considers Doctor Who as a transmedia phenomenon that has delighted, engaged and sometimes enraged viewers around the world.

’... gathers together a commendably representative range of writing, academic and fan, classic and newly commissioned. An essential addition to the scholarship’s unfolding text.’
Una McCormack, scriptwriter and author of Star Trek: Picard — Second Self (2022)

‘A wonderful book by some wonderful people, about what we love about Doctor Who, why we love it, and how it loves us back.’
Steven Schapansky, host of Doctor Who: Radio Free Skaro, Canada

‘Intelligent, insightful and incredibly wide-ranging. this is a really engaging collection. I love the mix of new analysis and older pieces to give a comprehensive overview. A perfect introduction for those new to Doctor Who scholarship, and packed with interest for more established readers.’
Simon Guerrier, producer and author of How The Doctor Changed My Life (2008)
