The Black Archive


RRP £6.99 each (paperback), £3.99 (download)

Various books, dwelling in the dark and dusty ‘Critical Studies’ corner of Waterstone’s, have, over the years, subjected Doctor Wh o to a thorough, scholarly grilling. What we’ve never

had, however, are any academically minded books about individual stories (not counting 1983’s The Unfolding Text’s starry-eyed obsession with Kinda). So, taking its cue from the BFI’s long-established series of Film Classics paperbacks, Obverse has let loose its first batch of Black Archive essays that each grab a story and subject it to a thorough 20,000- to 40,000-word evisceration.
