Doctor Who: A British Alien?
Speaker: Professor Danny Nicol (Westminster Law School)
Tuesday 6th March at 5.30 p.m. in Fyvie Hall, Regent Street Building
This lecture explores political dimensions of Doctor Who, the world’s longest-running science fiction television series, arguing that the programme is just as much about Britain and Britishness as about distant planets and monsters. The lecture interrogates the substance of Doctor Who‘s Britishness in terms of individualism, globalisation, foreign policy adventures and the unrelenting rise of the transnational corporation.
