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

 

‘After all, he does have an interesting story to tell.’

 

Most people watching Timelash (1985) these days are probably re-watching, and hold firmly to their opinions about this often maligned two-parter. But here are some questions to consider.

How do the ideas of HG Wells haunt Timelash? His socialism? His feminism? Do both Wells and Doctor Who fall short of their ideals in the same ways? How does power speak on

Karfel? Is the Borad a ventriloquist? Is the Borad vegan? Can idealism succeed in Doctor Who in an era script-edited by a profound cynic? And where have we seen that sofa before?

By asking fresh questions of Timelash, this Black Archive may allow new and old viewers to see the story in a different light – indeed, perhaps, as the most luminous force in this part of the galaxy.
