Eleventh Doctor (2010-2013)

THE ELEVENTH HOUR
The Eleventh Hour (2010) is the 21st century’s second major reinvention of Doctor WhoJon Arnold looks at how new showrunner Steven Moffat brings long-form storytelling and the influence of fairytale and children’s literature to the Doctor, his companions and their relationships.
THE IMPOSSIBLE ASTRONAUT / DAY OF THE MOON (To be published in May 2019)
The Impossible Astronaut / Day of the Moon (2011) draws on the imagery of conspiracy theories to create a secret history of 1960s America. John Toon explores this technique, as well as the story’s subversion, in the figure of Nixon, of the 21st-century ‘celebrity historical’.
THE GOD COMPLEX
A meditation on faith and fear set in a labyrinthine hotel, The God Complex (2011) draws on sources from Greek myth to George Orwell and Stanley Kubrick. Paul Driscoll’s thorough account disentangles these threads to find what the story tells us about the Doctor himself.
