Synopsis

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

‘Why is it up to you to save us? That’s quite a God complex you have there.’

Drawing deftly on sources from the Theseus myth to Nineteen Eighty-Four and The Shining, The God Complex (2011) expands a one-line brief about a shifting, labyrinthine hotel into a tragic commentary on the Doctor’s fallibility and Amy’s misplaced faith. Unsettling, disorientating and frankly terrifying, Toby Whithouse’s story considers fear, belief and the series’ fundamental question: Who is the Doctor? Is he a hero, or simply ‘a madman in a box’?

Paul Driscoll is a regular writer for You and Who and Doctor Who Worldwide, and contributed two stort stories to Seasons of War.
