Each volume of Tardis Eruditorum focuses on a specific era of the show, providing a thorough examination of the stories, characters, and production details. From the early days of William Hartnell's portrayal of the First Doctor to the modern adventures of Jodie Whittaker's Thirteenth Doctor, Sandifer leaves no sonic screwdriver unturned.

One of the standout features of Tardis Eruditorum is its meticulous attention to detail. Sandifer meticulously dissects each episode, exploring the historical and social context in which they were created. The book covers not only the episodes themselves but also the Doctor Who expanded universe, including novels, audio dramas, and spin-off series. This all-encompassing approach ensures that readers get a comprehensive understanding of the show's impact on popular culture.

Another aspect that makes Tardis Eruditorum a must-read for Doctor Who enthusiasts is its exploration of the show's political and philosophical themes. Sandifer goes beyond the surface-level analysis of the show's stories and explores the underlying meaning and symbolism. From discussions on feminism and gender identity to explorations of Marxism and postcolonial theory, Tardis Eruditorum offers a thought-provoking examination of Doctor Who's role in challenging societal norms and sparking intellectual discourse.

The long-tail clickbait title of this article promises an engaging journey through the Tardis Eruditorum. As you delve into the pages of this critical history, you will find yourself captivated by Sandifer's deep knowledge and infectious enthusiasm for Doctor Who. Whether you are a lifelong fan or a curious newcomer, Tardis Eruditorum is an invaluable companion that will enhance your experience of the beloved sci-fi series.

In this sixth volume of essays adapted from the acclaimed blog TARDIS Eruditorum you'll find a critical history of the Peter Davison and Colin Baker eras 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 the story not just as the story of a geeky sci-fi show but as the story of an entire tradition of mystical, avant-garde, and politically radical British culture. It treats Doctor Who as a show that is really about everything that ever happened, and everything that ever will.

This volume focuses on the bulk of the troubled John Nathan-Turner era, looking at its connections with soap operas, the Falklands, gaming, and more. Every blog post from the Davison and Baker eras has been revised and updated from its original form, along with ten brand new essays exclusive to this collected edition, including a look at who's fault the cancellation was, the influence of big budget musicals on Trial of a Time Lord, and an interview with Rob Shearman about the Davison and Baker eras and his efforts writing for the latter with Big Finish. Plus you'll learn:

The secret Norse roots of Terminus.

How the Morbius Doctors reveal the truth about the Fifth Doctor's regeneration.

What it really means to be a renegade Time Lord.
