October 17th: Back to The Eleventh Hour: Revisiting the Matt Smith Years
Volume 1: Series 5
Half critical analysis and half autobiography, Christa Mactíre begins her three-volume series of Doctor Who criticism books by looking at the fifth series of the revival. The first season for Matt Smith’s Doctor, the book jumps between exploring where the episodes fit in the broader history of the series, and how they influenced her personally. Featuring many new observations, such as:
- The story of Amy Pond is the beginning of a feminist approach to Doctor Who.
- The Beast Below is a small-scale version of The Day of the Doctor.
- Father Octavian’s church is the same one led by Tasha Lem.
