Présentation de l'éditeur

In this fourth volume of essays adapted from the acclaimed blog TARDIS Eruditorum you'll find a critical history of Tom Baker’s first three seasons of Doctor Who. TARDIS Eruditorum tells the ongoing story of Doctor Who from its beginnings in the 1960s to the present day, pushing beyond received wisdom and fan dogma to understand that story not just as the story of a geeky sci-fi show but as the story of an entire line of mystical, avant-garde, and radical British culture. It treats Doctor Who as a show that really is about everything that has ever happened, and everything that ever will.

This volume focuses on the early gothic-horror tinged years of Tom Baker, looking at its connections with postmodernism, the Hammer horror films, conspiracy theories, and more. Every essay from Tom Baker’s first three seasons has been revised and expanded from its original form, along with nine brand new essays exclusive to this collected edition, including a look at how Genesis of the Daleks changed Dalek history, the philosophical implications of the TARDIS translating language, and the nature of the Master. Plus, you’ll learn:

How Doctor Who’s golden age was cut short by a bully with poor media literacy.

Why bubble wrap is scary.

The secret of alchemy.

Dr Sandifer delivers once again in the latest published edition of TARDIS Eruditorum, this time covering the first three seasons of Tom Baker's tenure as the Fourth Doctor. Often referred to as the 'Hinchcliffe Era' by fans, named for the producer at the time, general consensus places these seasons as one of the high points of the classic era. In this book, Sandifer continues to look at the ongoing narrative of Doctor Who as a show, and examines how it managed to become one of the most successful programs on television, through the process of psychochronography. It is dense, it is fascinating, and it's remarkably engaging. Given that it's a bundle of critical readings, that's no small feat.

Although Tardis Eruditorum exists as a blog, all the entries here have been revised and expanded, and it contains a number of bonus essays exclusive to the book.

I can't recommend this highly enough. Five stars.

Philip Sandifer is back, yes, he's back, with another brilliant edition of TARDIS Eruditorum, a critical, ethical, cultural, ontological, metafictional, aesthetic and production study of Doctor Who, this time covering the Philip Hinchcliffe era of Tom Baker's years. (The next volume will deal with the second half of Tom Baker's career under Graham Williams and John Nathan Turner as producers.) Sandifer started this project as a blog and these books compile all of his Doctor Who entries, plus some new just-for-the-book entries, into a very well-produced, readable volume.

Sandifer is a talented writer who artistically/creatively forms his arguments, defenses, and examinations for some of the most popular, well-known Doctor Who serials. He is very thorough and even critical at times, but his goals and methods are to expose the avant-garde, alchemical, and even mystical nature of Doctor Who, such as the fact that The Deadly Assassin deals with the dreamscape/conspiracy surrounding Kennedy's assassination as a point of origin and death in Doctor Who.

The Brain of Morbius, with its mad and brilliant marvels, creates a thread for alchemy in material social progress. He even explores how the Time Lords are agents of history, not time, and how they become subjects of history in trying to change Dalek history in Genesis of the Daleks. Overall, Sandifer creates a brilliant book/series that is unlike many cultural, critical studies of Doctor Who, and that is a good thing. Reexamining the past at times can lead to new interpretations and new paths for the future.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 He has interesting opinions certainly, but... 5 février 2014

I don't agree with everything he says. For instance he is very intense in his dislike of Pyramids Of Mars, Seeds Of Doom and Talons Of Weng Chiang 3 stories very rightly considered classics by most people. He makes valid points about them certainly but I'm not sure if he's taking the critic role a little too seriously. Still everyone is entitled to their opinion and his blog and the books are very entertaining reads. Highly recommended.

1. If you're looking for an "episode guide" look elsewhere.
2. The cover design is charming.
3. Sandifer is a voice -- a real voice -- witty, spikey, tangenty, metatextual, rich.
4. He is also a fan of the show which, given the comprehensiveness of these books, is a necessity.
5. The prose here is sharper and cleaner than it was in his blog. The arguments have greater clarity.

Thoughtful, erudite, insightful, and occasionally annoying critical responses to the Doctor's narrative.
