Critical Fan’s Guide to Doctor Who 2011
Punked Books have announced the publication of Steven Moffat’s Doctor Who 2011: The Critical Fan’s Guide to Matt Smith’s Second Series (unauthorized) by Steven Cooper & Kevin Mahoney, a follow up to their previous book looking at the 2010 series.
At over 90,000 words, this is the most comprehensive guide yet published to the 2011 season of Doctor Who. Series 6 had, according to the blurb, the greatest ambition yet, as Steven Moffat created the most complex Doctor Who story arc ever and the format of this book follows the previous one, with Steven Cooper providing an excellent detailed analysis of each episode soon written after broadcast.
The various controversies of the series (Moffat’s novel move to split the series in half, murmurings and episode reduction, erroneous press reports about the loss of viewing figures) are covered, along with the cancellation of Doctor Who Confidential while this book argues that there is still a great deal to be positive about in Doctor Who.
Steven Cooper is a software developer and long-time Doctor Who fan, living in Melbourne, Australia, while Kevin Mahoney is the founder and editor of the literary website Authortrek.com.
Steven Moffat’s Doctor Who 2011: The Critical Fan’s Guide to Matt Smith’s Second Series (unauthorized) will be published as a paperback during the Summer of 2012 and is already currently available for Kindle devices and Kindle apps for just £2.99.
