In the new essay anthology Queers Dig Time Lords, editors Sigrid Ellis and Michael Damian Thomas have culled together a series of essays that analyze the adventures of our favorite Time Lord from a LGBT critical perspective. In addition to an introduction by John Barrowman and Carole E. Barrowman, contributors to the anthology include Tanya Huff (Blood Ties), Paul Magrs (Hornet's Nest), former Doctor Who and Torchwood script editor Gary Russell, and Nebula Award-winning author Rachel Swirsky. The essays cover a wide range of topics, from personal experiences with the series, to coming out stories, to critical analysis of the series from an academic perspective. Rachel Swirsky's piece is an especially touching story about her own personal "Doctor," which can be read here.
Regardless of sexual orientation, the book highlights the common threads that pull fans of all walks of life together: love of sci-fi, adventure, and a mysterious traveler in a blue box.
Queers Dig Time Lords is available now on Amazon as an e-book, as well as a paperback.
