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.

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.

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.

There’s not much I can add to the general conclusions I’ve written about concerning the three previous volumes of this analysis of Doctor Who. Here Mr. Sandifer gets his chance to look at Tom Baker and the episodes created under producer Philip Hinchcliffe, which is generally recognized as a peak of the classic era. Even though he clearly idolizes Mr. Baker and loves the shows of this period, Mr. Sandifer is not afraid to dig deep, go afield, criticize, and give credit where credit is due, all with a clear love of the series. That’s what makes these books such a pleasure to read.

Admittedly, I was looking forward to this volume since I was one of the readers interested in how he would tackle “The Talons of Weng-Chiang” after his thrashing of “The Celestial Toymaker” for Chinese racism. As I guess I expected, he played both sides expertly. He knew he had to condemn it for its clearly overt racism but by airing the arguments for the other side so well and then taking the counter-position, he was able to leave this one in the canon without having actually to agree with those reasons. In fact, this episode has a number of other problems that ring harshly, but (though he tries to deny it) the fact that it is “good television” absolves a lot of sins.

Honestly, I think Mr. Sandifer dug himself a pointless hole by being so negative about “The Celestial Toymaker”. Having watched what little of this that survived, I never even noticed the racism, though it made sense when Sandifer pointed it out. On the other hand, anyone with any sense at all sees the racism in “Talons”. And that includes my Chinese wife, who is disgusted by “Talons” but never made a comment about “The Celestial Toymaker”. The effects of subtle/casual racism are in many ways fading while “yellowface” and the like are consistently condemned. There are reasons to dislike “The Celestial Toymaker” (bad television trumps all) but racism that is intelligible only to those that are versed in the historic aspects of racism is not one of them. And that is a good thing, I think.

All that being said, I like that Mr. Sandifer brings these things out into the open and talks about them. It keeps fans honest in their assessment of the show. Ultimately, I think if Mr. Sandifer hadn’t gone a bit overboard and called “The Celestial Toymaker” non-canon, much of this controversy would have been on a smaller scale. Still, what fun is being safe when controversy can be had? It sells books.
