Shelves: doctor-who
Much more enjoyable than volume 8, particularly the essays...which seem a bit more considered and a little less snide than in the past. Unfortunately, the snide attitude remains in regards to (1) anything involving Steven Moffat, (2) anything made in America, and (3) treating the personal aesthetic opinions of the authors as dogmatic, accepted fact.

Hugely disappointing and a massive step down from the previous books in the series. The essays, usually the best part of AT, are all over the place and the number of basic errors is not just worrying, but in at least one place offensive.
