characters õ eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Elizabeth Sandifer review TARDIS Eruditorum - An Unofficial Critical History of Doctor Who Volume 3: Jon Pertwee Ï eBook or Kindle ePUB Makes any sense with the history of Doctor Who how the TARDIS works and just what happens when Jo Grant as played by Katy Manning meets the eccentric Time Lady Iris Wildthyme as played by Katy Manning On top of that you'll learnWhether The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars is the greatest Doctor Who story of the early 1970sHow Doctor Who is related to the prophetic works of William BlakeWhy this entire series has secretly been about a very ugly yellow so Books about Doctor Who tend to be either superficial and fluffy or packed to the gills with so much trivia information that only the most hardcore fan or RTD could read them allThis though is different A book that takes Doctor Who seriously both as a television program and as a cultural phenomenaSandifer who developed this book from his blog takes the Third Doctor era apart and examines it s split personality both glam space opera and gritty action thriller He also tries to put some sort of historical perspective on an incarnation of the Doctor that pretty much straddles the era of Edward Heath s tenure n Downing Street the time of the Three Day Week a miner strike Britain s entry into the EEC and growing ecological awareness all of which are reflected in Doctor Who plotsAs Sandifer admits this is not his favorite era of Who but it is when the program upped its game and became serious telly paving the way for the great days of Tom baker after which the show would effectively become immortal

characters õ eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Elizabeth Sandifer review TARDIS Eruditorum - An Unofficial Critical History of Doctor Who Volume 3: Jon Pertwee Ï eBook or Kindle ePUB In this third volume of essays adapted from the acclaimed blog TARDIS Eruditorum you'll find a critical history of the Jon Pertwee years of Doctor Who TARDIS Eruditorum tells the ongoing story of Doctor Who from its beginnings in the 1960s to the present day pushing beyond received wisdom and fan dogma to understand that story not just as the story of a geeky sci fi show but as the story of an entire line of mystical avant garde and radical British culture It treats Doctor Who a Like his previous 2 volumes Dr Sandifer s book of critical essays on the Jon Pertwee era of Doctor Who is a must read for all fans of the show His essays are insightful interesting and thought provoking Long time fans who may think they have read everything there is to read about the Jon Pertwee era will enjoy Sandifer s original perspective Probably not the best starting point for the non fan as the book assumes the reader already has a good knowledge of the show Thoroughly recommendedHowever I did have two problems with the book The first is a relatively minor niggle the essay on The Three Doctors was rather self indulgent and both uninteresting and somewhat impenetrable to someone who does not have Sandifer s knowldge of Blake s poetryThe other problem is the flawed politics of the book Flawed politics is actually a term used by Sandifer himself in his essay on The Monster of Peladon and it summed up the major problem I had with the book There seem to be two Philip Sandifers one writes extremely interesting critical essays on Doctor Who and contributed 85 90% of the book while the other Philip Sandifer writes polemical essays attacking the politics of any television programme he disagrees with and contributed the other 10 15% of the bookThe polemical Sandifer seems to consider that the creative forces behind Doctor Who are under an obligation to produce stories whose political content is entirely in accordance with his own particular brand of leftist views If they fail to do so the politics are then said to be flawed Why are the politics of Monster of Peladon said to be flawed As far as I can tell it is only because the story appears to Sandifer to putting forward political ideas with which he disagrees That does not make them flawed it just means that he and the creative team behind Monster need to agree to disagree whilst still respecting each others opinionsSandifer s own brand of leftist politics is so narrow and extreme that Barry Lett s moderate brand of centre left politics is portayed as being rather right wing Sticking with the Monster of Peladon as an example Sandifer goes on to conclude that it is in fact a proto Thatcherite story a case of Sandifer putting 2 and 2 together and getting 22 instead of 4 I want to read a critical analysis of the politics of Monster of Peladon not a polemical condemnation of them If the creative team behind Monster of Peladon wanted to make a proto thatcherite Dcotor Who story then they are entirely at libery to do so Critics like Sandifer are in turn at liberty to agree or disagree with the politics of the story but not to condemn the creative team for having made the story the way they did Sandifer seems incapable of politely disagreeing with the politics of a story he either agrees with the politics or else condemns them in very strong terms as a moral outrageNot only is the polemical Sandifer very narrow in his conception of what the sort of politics are good and what sort are flawed but when he gets going he tends to get rather worked up and carried away in his condemnation of anything he disagrees with In his essay on Moonbase 3 he spends most of it condemning a scene in the last episode where the Base Commander treats attempted rape as something reuiring a minor slap on the wrist rather than a appropriate punishment for such a serious offence I have never watched Moonbase 3 so I am assuming Sandifer s description of what goes on the in scenes in uestion is accurate although given that he concluded Monster of Peladon was proto Thatcherite that may not be a safe assumption in which case I whole heartedly agree with his condemnation of what is criminal behaviour However his condemnation goes on and on and on and on It reads like the transcript of a rabble rousing speech at a political rally than something I would expect to find in a book purporting to be an academic critical analysisThe book has its origins in a blog and is I believe self published and therein lies the problem What Sandifer needs than anything is a good editor to rein is his polemical tendencies and tell him to rewrite his essay on the Three DoctorsThis review may come across as rather harsh and at odds with the 5 star rating I have given The book deserves its rating and I am looking eagerly forward to future volumes Sandifer is an excellent writer and critic but he does need to mature a little when it comes to his politics I am not condemning his political views or any other views but he needs to become accepting of the validity and legitimacy of different political views and rein in his polemical tendencies

characters õ eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Elizabeth Sandifer review TARDIS Eruditorum - An Unofficial Critical History of Doctor Who Volume 3: Jon Pertwee Ï eBook or Kindle ePUB S a show that really is about everything that has ever happened and everything that ever willThis volume focuses on the first years of Doctor Who in colour the five glam rock tinged years of Jon Pertwee looking at its connections with environmentalism JG Ballard neopaganism and Monty Python Every essay on the Pertwee era has been revised and expanded from its original form along with seven brand new essays exclusive to this collected edition including a look at whether Torchwood A hugely impressive contribution to a fascinating series I have to admit to being rather possessive about the Pertwee era as my earliest Who memory is the Sea Devils emerging with their lifeless eyes and ungainly heads Traumatic when you re 4 years oldThis is a stimulating and well argued engagement with the nature of the Pertwee period but sometimes misses but really lands a great deal of critical hits As an old guard fan not terribly versed in the ins and outs of Who fandom I found much here of great interest and plenty to read and stimulate the discussion further I m glad the author has a soft spot for Day of the Daleks and despite happy childhood memories of watching Invasion of the Dinosaurs I think he s basically right about the 11th season The insights into British culture at the time of pretty well sound but this plenty to get your teeth into here politically as well and you might read the politics of the Pertwee period very differently to the author He does make a powerful case however and the high point of the volume the chapter on William Blake read through The 3 Doctors is a mad colourful highly energised piece of writing pushes the book to the limit Recommended
