Description

The Doctor may have regenerated on many occasions, but so too has Doctor Who. Moving with the times, the show has evolved across fifty years. New Dimensions of Doctor Who brings together experts on the Doctors, on TV brands, bioethics, transmedia, and cultural icons to explore contemporary developments in the series' music, design and representations of technology, plus issues of showrunner authority and star authorship. Putting these new dimensions into context means thinking about changes in the TV industry such as the rise of branding and transmedia storytelling. Along with its faster narrative pace, and producer/fan interaction via Twitter, 'new Who' also has a new home: Roath Lock Studios at Cardiff Bay. Studying the Doctor Who Experience in its Cardiff setting, and considering audience nostalgia alongside anniversary celebrations, this book explores how current Doctor Who relates to real-world spaces and times.
