Overview

If a person could travel eternally through space and time, how would this power affect him, psychologically and emotionally? In a fun and accessible way, Doctor Who Psychology explores this question through an analysis of the longest-running sci-fi TV series of all time. This fascinating in-depth academic study, edited by Travis Langley, contains 20 essays delving into the psychology behind the time-traveling Doctor in his many iterations, as well as his companions and his foes.
The essays include:
 

  • “Who’s Who: A Myers-Briggs Comparison of the Doctors’ Personalities”
  • “Madness among the Monsters: Are the Doctor’s Enemies Insane?”
  • “Twice the Hearts, Half the Feels: Time Lord Detachment, Attachment, Abandonment”
  • “Fear Fuels Love: Misattribution of Arousal and Companion Attraction”
