• The flight from history: from H G Wells to Doctor Who – and back again

      Charles, Alec; University of Chester (Monash University, 2009)
      This paper examines how, in the wake of 9/11, BBC Television s Doctor Who has symbolically explored that catastrophe and the efforts to con-struct a new world order in its aftermath. In doing so, it witnesses parallels with the apocalyptic and utopian visions of the programme s own greatest literary influence, the seminal science fiction of H G Wells.
