Elizabeth Sandifer created Eruditorum Press. She’s not really sure why she did that, and she apologizes for the inconvenience. She currently writes Last War in Albion, a history of the magical war between Alan Moore and Grant Morrison. She used to write TARDIS Eruditorum, a history of Britain told through the lens of a ropey sci-fi series. She also wrote Neoreaction a Basilisk, writes comics these days, and has ADHD so will probably just randomly write some other shit sooner or later.Support Elizabeth on Patreon.

    Hello friends.

    The Doctor wins because he has a better television set.

    Until the Doctor arrived, Salamander had enjoyed a measure of narrative privacy. He compartmentalized his life, so the left hand didn’t know what the right was doing. He can be a different person altogether simply by changing context. But this only works as long as he keeps people from talking to each other. Which isn’t easy, given that he’s an international figure.

    Because the TARDIS gives us a view into all the areas of Salamander’s life that no on else is privy to, Salamander becomes exposed. This is what leads to his downfall, and literally speaking at the end. It has nothing to do with morality, even though the process of narrative non-disclosure is, in itself, amoral.

    “a story about the evils of leftist revolutionaries”

    What actual leftist revolutionary policies does Salamander espouse? Is he raising class consciousness? Is he dismantling the middle-class?

    Surely he’s exposing the evils of a dictator who shares a number of superficial resemblances to contemporary revolutionaries, attacking the symbol not the symbolised. Unless of course, that’s alchemy?

    While on the surface Shakespeare’s history plays are lionising the ancestors of his own day’s ruling class, beneath the surface they’re usually doing something more complicated.

    Take, for example, Henry V. If Shakespeare had intended Henry V as a straightforward heroisation of his subject, then it would be unaccountable why he opens the play with a secret ecclesiastical conference at which the Archbishop of Canterbury reveals that he has made an offer to Henry that the Church will support his war effort against France financially, in exchange for Henry’s siding with the Church against a bill in Parliament that would deprive the Church of half its property.

    In the subsequent scene, Henry asks the Archbishop to prove that Henry’s claims in France are legally valid. The Archbishop then produces a long and complicated legal and historical excursus that no one present is qualified to confirm or disconfirm. But thanks to the earlier scene, we already know that the Archbishop has a strong financial incentive to tell Henry what he wants to hear, and that Henry for his part has a strong incentive, both financial and political, to believe what the Archbishop is telling him — so the effect of the first scene is to undercut the second scene in such a way as to cast doubt on the legitimacy of the war.

    Someone intent on simply telling the glorious rise of the current order would not have included the first scene, nor made the case for a just cause in the second scene so obscure. (And that’s just one of many scenes in the play that undermines a purely heroic reading.)

    This story is big with Jamie/Victoria shippers.
    1. Both of them are wearing nearly matching plaid skirts at the beginning
    2. Victoria is smushed on top of Jamie in the cramped helicopter
    3. Jamie gets her into Salamander’s household by calling Victoria “his girlfriend”.
