Description: Since its revival in 2005, Doctor Who has been transformed from cult franchise into an award-winning, multi-platform, flagship BBC One drama watched by millions each week.  In 2010, the regeneration of Tenth Doctor David Tennant into Eleventh Doctor Matt Smith saw the keys to the Doctor Who kingdom handed over from Russell T. Davies to new showrunner Steven Moffat.  His first series was a highly anticipated moment of change in the production regime of this long-running show. Matt Smith, joined by Karen Gillan as new companion Amy Pond, was an immediate critical success as the new Doctor as was Moffat's new take on the show.

Cult television and film blogger Frank Collins has significantly expanded upon the original reviews from his popular Cathode Ray Tube website to examine this latest series of adventures. He provides an in-depth analysis of episodes, characters, themes and ideas, and places Doctor Who within the wider cultural context of contemporary social, political, historical and psychological debates. A unique view of a television icon, providing much food for thought, this book is essential reading for fans of the new series.

This book is illustrated with many exclusive behind-the-scenes production shots and includes a colour plates section.
