Altrix Books Remembers Oft-Forgotten Doctor Who Stories in Army of Ghosts
New collection of critical essays explores the "ghosts" of the popular sci-fi series
By: Altrix Books
Covering over forty Doctor Who adventures from Hartnell to Capaldi, the essays explore those stories that tend to get lost in the crowd. Between the renowned and the notorious lie plenty of undervalued treasures in the Doctor Who canon. Our ten writers consider the reasons behind their obscurity and whether or not they worth revisiting again.
Writers include Martin Ruddock (Doctor Who Magazine, SHiNDiG!), Kara Dennison (The Black Archive, Crunchyroll), Paul Driscoll (The Black Archive, WhatCulture), Matt Nida, David Cromarty, Steven B, Richard O'Hagan, Tom Marshall, Jim Hall and Tony Green.
Includes a bonus section on such official curios as Dimensions in Time, The Curse of Fatal Death, The Pertwee Radio Plays, Shada in its various incarnations, The BBCi webcasts, The Infinite Quest/Dreamland, and the video games Destiny of the Doctors and Lego Dimensions.
Foreword by the editor of Obverse Books' Black Archive series, Philip Purser-Hallard.

The book was originally conceived and commissioned by JR Southall (Watching Books) as a follow up volume to Hating to Love (Watching Books) which explored those stories often considered the worst. A revised edition of Hating to Love and a third volume – Stitches in Time, covering the most groundbreaking Doctor Who stories, will be released at a future date.
The collection is dedicated to Kenny Davidson, a fellow fan and admin of the Book of Fab Facebook group who tragically died last year. In Kenny's memory, a proportion of the proceeds will be going to The Meningitis Foundations.
