In 2010, the eleventh Doctor, Matt Smith, first appeared on TV; in 2013, the year of the 50th anniversary of the first episode of Doctor Who, he regenerated into his successor, Peter Capaldi. This first book devoted to the era of Matt Smith and showrunner Steven Moffat is written by the experts on the Doctor. It is wide-ranging and varied in viewpoint and explores a colourful range of issues, including the performance of the Doctor, the gothic and fairy-tale genres, the portrayal of history on screen, gender and sexuality, the phenomenon of Christmas television, the transatlantic dimensions of the programme, its look and sound, promotional culture and audience response. Also discussed are Doctor Who interactive games and the spin off The Sarah Jane Adventures. Written in an accessible style, Doctor Who, the Eleventh Hour is a valuable contribution to Doctor Who watching and thinking, for all who follow or study this televisio phenomenon.
