    review Triumph of a Time Lord Regenerating Doctor Who in the Twenty first Century Matt Hills Î 5 review PDF NEW [Triumph of a Time Lord Regenerating Doctor Who in the Twenty first Century] is one of the better academic books about Who that I have read Hills is a sympathetic fan and also a media studies lecturer in Cardiff In this book he has sensibly not tried to provide a global guide to Who but instead has taken a small number of big issues and tried to illuminate them in detail Looking mainly at New Who up to early 2009 he basically has seven things that he wants to say and takes a chapter to say each of them1

review Triumph of a Time Lord Regenerating Doctor Who in the Twenty first Century

review Triumph of a Time Lord Regenerating Doctor Who in the Twenty first Century Read ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Î Matt Hills Matt Hills Î 5 review Th book to explore the new Who phenomenon through to the casting of Matt Smith as the new Doctor It explores Doctor Who through contemporary debates in TV Studies about uality TV and how can we define TV series as both cult and mainstream Further the book challenges assumptions in focusing on the importance of breath taking dramatic moments along with narrative structures and in analysing the significance of Murr First a compliment This is likely the only book about Doctor Who out there that thoroughly considers the implications of DW through the lens of Cultural Theory Foucault Derrida and their progeny In other words this packs theoretical punch than most introductory college texts However insightful and scholarly written and considered I found Mills style to be irritatingly elitist by his heavy reliance on what I can only term cultural theory speak That is nearly every idea of his is ualified by uotation marks ie high culture cultured up mutually exclusive etc All of which makes him sound both pretentious and hesitant to commit to any of his ideas Yes one can argue that he is simply following in a theoretical approach that is self aware of signifying language But honestly it s downright irritating to read Ditch the uotation marks I say and stand for what you believe inOne of the interesting and least irritatingly written ideas that he considers is the precise genre in which DW fits Whether time travelling to the historical past or a wholly imagined projected future new Who would thus appear to be consistently coded as science fictionalYet new Who has added pseudo futurological stories to its pseudo historicals one recurrent fan complaint has been that depictions of a the future in the series have not been proper science fictional extrapolations from contemporary society Instead the far futures represented have freuently been satirical metaphorical versions of the present day Serious analysis aside Hills does have a sense of humor albeit subtle If you read the following carefully you ll know exactly what I mean which also includes the annoying cloying cultural theory speakResembling author functions and generic functions what I have termed the text function acts as an attempted discursive fixing of textual classifications seeking to police and box in specific textual identitiesblah blah blah my wordsDespite the ridiculousness of that passage as a whole that little TARDIS joke was pretty darn clever if I do say so myself If you want to get into ideas behind DW I would honestly tell you to skip Hills overwrought treatise and pick up instead Russell T Davies A Writer s Tale Not only is the latter thrilling to read but you were certainly get bang for your buck or pound as the case may be as it s over twice the number of pages for almost the same price

review Triumph of a Time Lord Regenerating Doctor Who in the Twenty first Century Read ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Î Matt Hills Matt Hills Î 5 review Before Saturday March 26th 2005 Doctor Who had been off the air as a regular new TV series for than fifteen years; until a production team led by Russell T Davies re imagined the program so successfully so triumphantly that it's become an instant Christmas tradition a BAFTA winner an international superbrand and a number one rated show It's even been credited with reinventing family TV This is the first full leng is one of the better academic books about Who that I have read Hills is a sympathetic fan and also a media studies lecturer in Cardiff In this book he has sensibly not tried to provide a global guide to Who but instead has taken a small number of big issues and tried to illuminate them in detail Looking mainly at New Who up to early 2009 he basically has seven things that he wants to say and takes a chapter to say each of them1 New Who is strongly authored by RTD and now Moffatt which makes it very different from Old Who NB though that the credit for this authoring is shared by others notably Phil Collinson and the BBC s upper hierarchy2 New Who s writers are themselves long term Who fans but this does not mean that they have a harmonious relationship with the fan base3 Time travel though obviously central to Who is not really used in an sfnal way in New Who the weakest of the chapters I thought4 Monsters are even central to New Who both as spectacle and as moral lessons5 New Who cannot clearly be categorised as uality or as non uality TV includes a very interesting passage on how Christopher Ecclestone s comments on the show undermined RTD s attempts to mark it as uality 6 Murray Gold is one of the key creators of New Who also the occasional use of pop songs in the show is mildly interesting7 New Who has managed to become both cult and mainstream NB this is uite a different distinction to uality non uality I thought the two best sections were on Christopher Ecclestone and Murray Gold but there is lots here too By writing this book Hills appears to have hoped to update Tulloch and Alvarado but I think has done a better job It s not uite as magisterial as the Time and Relative Dimensions in Space collection to which Hills contributed the chapter on Big Finish but way better than the books I ve read on Who by Robb Newman Chapman Couch etc I was a bit annoyed at first at yet another book which banishes footnotes to the end why with 21st century typesetting technology is this still considered an acceptable way to publish but fortunately most of the footnotes are simply references to other work most of which I have already read though I am still irritated by the handful that do have substantive content marooned hundreds of pages from the statements they are illuminating So that turns out to be a minor gripe
