I’m really pleased to announce I will be writing a critical study of Quatermass and the Pit for Obverse Books. It’s part of a newly announced series – The Silver Archive, in contrast to the already available (and very popular) Black Archive. Where the latter focuses entirely on Doctor Who, the Silver Archive covers a much wider field.
The Silver Archive
Obverse Books owner Stuart Douglas explains:
“There’s such a rich history of genre television, and yet discussion of individual series still tend to concentrate on a few big names while the rest are effectively ignored, usually on the basis that there simply isn’t a large enough fanbase to justify a full length analysis.
“The Silver Archive, by allowing writers to narrow their focus to one season or serial, or even a single episode, transcends that problem, and lets us open windows on a wide range of shows, some fondly remembered, some almost forgotten and in need of rehabilitation.
The range opens in 2018 with three Sapphire and Steel titles, before moving to a quarterly cycle. I’m very pleased to have the chance to write about Quatermass and the Pit, and (on the current timetable) this will be available late 2019.
