Note:  A print-on-demand edition (linked via the Lulu logo above) was released in August 2018 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:
‘I’m not scared of Hell — it’s just Heaven for bad people.’

Heaven Sent (2015) is Doctor Who’s first single-hander episode, shortlisted for the Hugo and Emmy Awards. It takes the Doctor on a journey of self-discovery through a bespoke torture chamber, bringing us deeper insight into his adopted persona and the Time Lord beneath. This Black Archive brings everything from Jungian psychology to video game design to bear on uncovering what he has been hiding from the audience and from himself.

Kara Dennison is a writer and journalist specialising in analysing geek and genre entertainment.

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 (Who). But they actually manage it. Treat your bookshelf."
