"The battle-scarred, the insane, the ones even you can’t control": Disability and the female bodies of the Doctor’s companions

Chapter


Abstract


  • The British television series Doctor Who remains one of the most well loved

    science fiction television programs around the world. It features the

    Doctor, an alien Time Lord—a two-hearted , self-proclaimed “madman in a

    box”—who travels through time and space and, at the point of death, is able

    to regenerate into a different body, conveniently allowing the show to continue when the lead actor opts to pursue other projects.
