Cover blurb:
‘It’s your moon, womankind. It’s your choice.’

A contentious episode provoking passionate responses, Peter Harness’ Kill the Moon (2014) straddles the divides between science fiction and fantasy, optimism and pessimism, masculinity and femininity. All these tensions extend into its ambiguously metaphorical conclusion. In addressing complex issues of personal and political choice, Kill the Moon asks fundamental questions about structures of power and responsibility in Doctor Who, and about the evolving relationship between the companion and the Doctor.

Darren Mooney is an Irish pop culture critic, author, columnist and broadcaster.

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
