Doctor Who Extended Media Review – Doctor Who and the Communist Malcolm Hulke and his Career in Television by Michael Herbert

This short monograph by Michael Herbert was published in 2015. Herbert teaches history in Manchester and has written about other communist personages. He examines the career Malcolm Hulke and how his communist leanings influenced his Doctor Who writing.

Herbert provides a short overview of Hulke’s career and examines each of his Doctor Who contributions with a short synopsis. This was an interesting pamphlet and it made me wish there was a more expansive biography of this seminal Doctor Who writer.
