Product Description:

‘After all, he does have an interesting story to tell.’

Most people watching Timelash (1985) these days are probably re-watching, and hold firmly to their opinions about this often maligned two-parter. But here are some questions to

How do the ideas of HG Wells haunt Timelash? His socialism? His feminism? Do both Wells and Doctor Who fall short of their ideals in the same ways? How does power speak on
Karfel? Is the Borad a ventriloquist? Is the Borad vegan? Can idealism succeed in Doctor Who in an era script-edited by a profound cynic? And where have we seen that sofa before?
