Essay in a new Doctor Who ebook!

I already posted this in the victory thread, but I figured I’d start a topic too… I have an essay in an ebook that came out on the 9th. I’d appreciate it if you share with anyone who likes Doctor Who and would be interested in buying such a thing!

Okay, I’m pleased to report that I loved The Doctor Has His Day? Doctor Who and the Constraints of the American Cultural Cold War.

Full disclosure: I’m inclined to like essays that explore symptomatic expression of cultural norms in pop culture narratives science fiction stuff.

I know next to nothing about Dr. Who so I was surprised to learn so much about the show and the story arcs in the different iterations of the show and the doctor. I was wishing at times it was a wiki so I could learn more about particular episodes or features of the show.

I also appreciated the rich cultural and historical context for examining the show. For example, I had no idea it had been used critically against the Thatcher regime. And examining ideas about gender expressed in those episodes was so interesting, I was ready to read an entirely separate essay developing that question.

Bravo!! :smiley_cat: :fireworks: :fireworks: :fireworks:
