Black Archive (disambiguation)for other, similarly-named pages.
The Black Archive was a series of critical monographs about selected individual Doctor Who stories, from the series' earliest history to the present day. Rather than focusing on behind-the-scenes production history as much Doctor Who fan scholarship has done, the series aimed to analyse and explore the stories as broadcast.
The series' editing team was led by Philip Purser-Hallard, along with Stuart Douglas and Paul Simpson, and published by Obverse Books. It was named after the Black Archive, a museum of alien artefacts first seen in Enemy of the Bane.
The series' first four titles were published simultaneously, in 1 March 2016. Following titles, from Image of the Fendahl up to Full Circle were released each two months. Starting with Carnival of Monsters, titles were released monthly.
