'Doctor Who' has always thrived on multiplicty, unpredictability and transformation, it's worlds and characters kaleidoscopic and shifting, and 'Doctor Who"s complexity has grown. With its triumphant return to TV in 2005, it was made up of four different fictional forms, across three different media, with five actors simultaneously playing the eponymous hero. 'TARDISbound' is the first book to deal both with the TV series and with the 'audio adventures', original novels, and short story anthologies produced since the 1990s, engaging with the common elements of these different texts and with distinctive features of each. 'TARDISbound' places 'Doctor Who' under a variety of lenses, from examining the leading characteristics of these 'Doctor Who' texts, to issues of class, ethnicity and gender in relation to the Doctor(s), other TARDIS crew-members, and the non-human/inhuman beings they encounter. 'TARDISbound' also addresses major questions about the aesthetics and ethical implications of 'Doctor Who'.
