Torchwood Goes Deeper
Entitled Illuminating Torchwood, written by Andrew Ireland, the book looks at some of the themes and storylines of the Doctor Who spinoff and the questions that they raise.
â€œCreated as a spinoff of Doctor Who, the BBC television series Torchwood is a unique blend of science fiction and fantasy, with much more of an adult flavor [sic] than its progenitor. With its memorable characters, adult language, subversive humour, and openly homosexual and bisexual storylines, Torchwood provides a wealth of material for scholarly analysis and debate.
â€œUsing Torchwood as its focal point, this collection of essays by experts and enthusiasts provides an interpretive framework for understanding the continually developing forms and genres of contemporary television drama.â€
Like a good book? Like it even more when said book leads on to interesting almost unanswerable questions that can provide hours of Doctor Who and Torchwood related chatter with your friends? Then Illuminating Torchwood is just for you!
