Summary Summary: "Triumph of a Time Lord is the first book-length, scholarly study of the 'new Who' phenomenon. It explores Doctor Who through contemporary debates in TV Studies: 'what is quality TV?' and how can we define TV series as both 'cult' and 'mainstream'? More than that, it challenges academic assumptions, analysing the significance of Murray Gold's music as well as visual representations. It also considers the role of fandom in the show's return: what are the consequences of fans taking charge of the TV series they love?"--BOOK JACKET.
