Description

Through a richly detailed account of fan cultures and media over the over fifty-year history of the show, Watching Doctor Who explores fandom’s changing attitudes towards this much-loved TV series.

Why do fans love an episode one year but deride it a decade later? How do fans’ values of Doctor Who change over time? As a show that’s featured as part of the shared landscape of home entertainment since the 1960s, Doctor Who helps us understand the changing nature of notions of ‘value’ and ‘quality’ in popular television.

Through a series of in-depth case studies of fan polls and debates, Paul Booth and Craig Owen Jones interrogate the way Doctor Who fans and audiences re-interpret the value of particular episodes, Doctors, companions, and eras of Who.

With a foreword by Paul Cornell.
