It suddenly struck me that I should have mentioned The Black Archive on here at some point in the past seven years we've been producing them - but I am notoriously poor at self publicity!
Anyway, with another (less grumpy) hat on, I run Obverse Books, and one of the things we publish is the Black Archive, a series of book length studies of individual Doctor Who episodes, published every two months. We're currently just about to publish volume 66, on 'The Greatest Show in the Galaxy' - all the others are still in print, including a couple which have won awards (the series as a whole was described by DWM as 'a treat for your bookshelves' - and we have covered stories which are missing from the BBC archives).
(we also do a less frequent Silver Archive, covering other genre shows - so far we've done books on Sapphire & Steel (3 books, covering two Assignments each - PJ Hammond said lovely things about each of them), Stranger Things, Dark Skies, Gurney Slade, Survivors and Millennium.
The latest Black Archive is now available to order in electronic format, and pre-order in paperback - Simon Guerrier, author of the new biography of David Whitaker, takes a look at the very early, and very odd, Hartnell story THE EDGE OF DESTRUCTION.
