The Black Archive – a series of book-length looks at single Doctor Who stories from 1963 to the present day.

 

‘This is the Plain of Pamir, known to those who travel to Cathay as the Roof of the World.’

 

Marco Polo (1964) reflects a cultural change reshaping TV’s role as historian, placing the interpretation of history in the viewers’ hands by recruiting them as travellers in Polo’s caravan.

 

Examining camera treatments and mobility, adaptive and remedial interventions, public and book history, cultural assumptions and memories, this book celebrates the work of collaborators, copyists, studio personnel and fans in reconstructing this most famous and earliest of missing Doctor Who stories.
