Cover blurb:
‘You need my voice in particular. The cleverest voice in the room.’

Written in haste and mostly confined to a single set, Midnight (2008) is a masterpiece of minimalist Doctor Who. Three times adapted as a stage play, it rejects the conventions of the series to examine the nature of evil and how it can corrupt human society. In the process it deconstructs and interrogates the nature of the Doctor himself, in an absurdist retelling of the myth of Echo and Narcissus.

Philip Purser-Hallard is one of the range editors of the Black Archive and a multiple contributor to the series.

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
