Doctor Who Psychology: A Madman with a Box

How does an immortal deal with death? What kind of person makes the best Companion? Why does the Doctor say he and Freud "got on very well"? How do the Daleks and Cybermen reflect concerns about losing our humanity? And what can looking at an ancient Time Lord teach us about real human nature? Doctor Who Psychology: A Madman with a Box explores these questions and many more. Chapters include:

    "Getting to the Hearts of Time Lord Personality Change"
    "Who's Who: Interview with Four Doctors and a River on the Core of Personality"
    "Post-Time War Stress Disorder"
    "From Human to Machine: At What Point Do You Lose Your Soul?"

Doctor Who Psychology explores the alien in us all. This fascinating in-depth collection, edited by Travis Langley, contains 19 chapters and other special features delving into the psychology behind the time-traveling Doctor in his many iterations, as well as his companions and his foes. With a foreword by Third Doctor Companion Katy Manning and interviews with actors who played Doctors new and old, Doctor Who Psychology travels through the how and why of Who. It's all timey-wimey.
