    Doctor Who in Time and Space is a recent collection of essays about you know The JN T book made me curious about the fanzines of the 80s, and threw this up as a result.I am disappointed There are a few good essays here, including an outstanding piece by J M Frey called Whose Doctor , about Sydney Newman and Doctor Who s ties to Canada, and colonialism and cultural cringe That alone was worth the 16 I paid for the Kindle edition.A lot of the essays, though, just made me cranky For example, Nostal [...]

    I will never get back the time I wasted trying to decipher this appallingly written collection There s so much interesting stuff going on in Doctor Who, this was such a waste And completely uncritical of the series The spelling of Gandolph was especially painful to behold.

    Dreadful I nearly headed for one star when assessing this book How can such stunning and brilliant popular culture create such dull, predictable and boring analyses of it This is a theory lite book It is also an ideas lite book It features basic discussions of fandom, embedded with some rather diabolical sexism towards female fans, no mentions of bricolage and most disturbingly a lack of contexual investigations of the programme.Why Doctor Who is so remarkable is that it weaves a complex and int [...]

    A collection of thoughtful, intellectual essays on a range of topics as they relate to Doctor Who Feminism, imperialism, horror, the news media, and fans themselves, among other topics, are discussed in detail Some of the essays are shallow some could do with a bit editorial oversight there are a few too many failed sentences, misspellings, and other errors for a book of this bent But overall the ideas presented are intelligently considered and discussed.Recommended for intellectual supernerds [...]

    The quality of the essays in Doctor Who in Time and Space varies, but none of them are outright bad My favorite was Kristine Larsen s Everything Dies The Message of Mortality in the Eccleston and Tennant Years The most disappointing essay was David Whitt s Whatever you do, don t blink Gothic Horror and the Weeping Angels Trilogy because it basically just summarized the episodes and didn t really explore their relationship to the Gothic.

    A mixed bag.
