‘The most important leaf in human history.’
The Rings of Akhaten (2013) is a
subtle and sophisticated engagement with the contemporary New Atheist
movement, critiquing its more imperialist and patriarchal assumptions
alongside those of Doctor Who itself.
Broadcast in the series’ 50th year, it offers a feminised vision of
the future with the potential for another 50 years’ worth of places to
see. This Black Archive includes an interview with, and additional material by, director Farren Blackburn.
