DOCTOR WHO: TWELFTH NIGHT

updated: 
Friday, August 12, 2016 - 8:53am
Dr. Andrew O'Day
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, August 31, 2016

A chapter has become available for the volume Doctor Who: Twelfth Night to be published by I.B. Tauris. The chapter should look at the character of Missy in the context of Moffat's queer characters (Madame Vastra and Jenny and 'odd' figures such as Dorium and Strax). It should argue, however, that casting the Master as female de-queers the relationship between the Doctor and the Master and casts it as heterosexual. Other female characters should be examined such as the Rani and Servalan in Blake's 7. The chapter should NOT look at fan responses to Missy as this is covered elsewhere in the collection.
