The Black Archives: The Pyramids of Mars


My non-fiction book on the classic Tom Baker Doctor Who story The Pyramids of Mars is now available for pre-order, in both paper and e-book formats.

The Black Archive books aren’t just another series of behind-the-scenes making-of guides, but are lengthy examinations of the stories themselves and their contents. I had a blast researching and writing the book, which looks at everything from Ancient Egyptian mythology to Britain’s occupation of Egypt in modern times to Victorian era and Twentieth Century mummy novels and movies – all the rich and colourful ingredients which went into making Pyramids one of the most highly-regarded Doctor Who stories of all time (and one of my favourites).

There’s an interview with me and some of the other Black Archives authors at the Doctor Who Companion blog.
