The peace and quiet of a remote homestead in the 1880s American West is shattered by the arrival of two shadowy outriders searching for 'the healer'. When the farmer refuses to help them, they raze the house to the ground using guns that shoot bolts of energy instead of bullets... In the town of Redwater, the Doctor and Martha learn of a snake-oil salesman who's patent medicines actually cure his patient. But when the Doctor and Martha investigate they discover the truth is stranger, and far more dangerous. Caught between the law of the gun and the deadly plans of intergalactic mercenaries, the Doctor and Martha are about to discover just how wild the West can become... Featuring the Tenth Doctor and Martha as played by David Tennant and Freema Agyeman in the hit Doctor Who series from BBC Television.

The cyborg – an organic body augmented with technology – is an enduring figure that can be found across science fiction stories, novels, films, and, more recently, television. What can its marked presence in cult TV shows tell us about the rapidly changing world we live in, and indeed about the human condition? This book explores how the image of the cyborg attracts our fears and fascinations. These bionic creations encourage us, as viewers, to think about our interactions with technology in an age of immediacy and surveillance, reassess our own corporeal experiences, and re-imagine gender binaries and racial differences. Chapters draw together cyborg theory and criticism from science fiction and television studies to analyse a variety of popular series: from Doctor Who to Star Trek: Voyager, and Battle Star Galactica to Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, the cyborg appears as action hero, villain, or as a reflection of ourselves. Whether manifested in the Daleks, the Cylons, or the Borg, these figures are ideal sites to explore concepts such as replication, uniformity, performance, embodiment and virtuality, and the serial narratives of cult TV the ideal format to analyse changing cyborg representations over time. This book uses the televisual medium as a tool to understand a range of cybernetic characters, forming a notable event

Doctor Who has always thrived on multiplicity and transformation. In the last two decades, it has grown dramatically in scope and complexity, migrating from television to other media universes. By 2009, Doctor Who was being produced in three different media, with six actors simultaneously playing the role of the Doctor. TARDISbound addresses the full range of Doctor Who texts, including the hitherto neglected audio-adventures and original novel ranges. Piers Britton examines distinctive and shared eatures of the Doctor Who texts in different media, and offers a critique of issues such as class, gender and the monstrous across those texts. He also explores the aesthetics and the ethical implications of this uniquely multifarious fantasy narrative.
