Tenth Doctor (2005-2010)

THE IMPOSSIBLE PLANET / THE SATAN PIT
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).
LOVE & MONSTERS (To be published in February 2019)
Niki Haringsma investigates Love & Monsters (2006) – an experimental story told by an unreliable narrator with a camcorder, which seems as much a commentary on Doctor Who fandom and its politics as on the elusive, often traumatic presence of the Doctor himself.
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.
