Tenth Doctor (2005-2010)

THE IMPOSSIBLE PLANET / THE SATAN PIT (To be published in March 2018)
On a planet impossibly orbiting a black hole, aliens reminiscent of the works of HP Lovecraft worship the biblical Adversary. Simon Bucher-Jones, who wrote the acclaimed The Black Archive #5: Image of the Fendahl, analyses another post-Gothic horror story: The Impossible Planet / The Satan Pit (2006).
HUMAN NATURE / THE FAMILY OF BLOOD
Its unique source in a novel by Paul Cornell makes Human Nature and The Family of Blood (2007) a rich and profound TV story. Naomi Jacobs and Philip Purser-Hallard discuss how it treats war, school and family, humanity and divinity, and look at the adaptation process itself.
