The Black Archives 50: The Day of the Doctor (published 11th January 2021)
Eligible for Best Related Work

The Black Archive is a series of academic treatises on individual Doctor Who stories. I had the pleasure of writing about Day of the Doctor, the show’s 50th anniversary episode. In it I bring together a lot of the strings of my approach to writing: magic and theatricality, the postmodernist approach to structure, 1980s BBC Shakespeare, and (in an early draft) pro wrestling narrative logic, all combine in this celebration of a celebration.
