About Time 1: Seasons 1-3 (First Doctor)

abouttime1 ? In Stock £19.99

Highly detailed reference guides to each era of Doctor Who by Lawrence Miles and Tat Wood.

In addition to the usual concerns such as the TV show's continuity (alien races, the Doctor's abilities, etc.) and lore (anecdotal, Did You Know?-style material), Miles and Wood will examine each story in the context of the year/historical period it was produced, determining just how topical the stories were.

Along those lines, each About Time volume will include several essays on a myriad of comprehensive "Doctor Who" topics such as: When are the UNIT stories set?, What's the Timeline of the Earth Empire?, How believable is the British Space Programme? and Just How Chauvinistic is Doctor Who?

AboutTime2 ? In Stock £19.99

Highly detailed reference guides to each era of Doctor Who by Lawrence Miles and Tat Wood.

With a hit new “Doctor Who” series airing across the globe, About Time serves as the definitive (albeit unofficial) guide to the classic “Doctor Who” Seasons 4 to 6—a massive paradigm shift as Patrick Troughton takes over the show's lead role. Written by Tat Wood (SFX, TV Zone) and Lawrence Miles (Faction Paradox), About Time not only examines the usual continuity concerns in bursting detail, but looks at how the political / social issues of the 1960s affected the show's production. Essays in this volume include: “What's the Cyberman Timeline?”, “Whatever Happened to the USA?” and “Did Sergeant Pepper Know the Doctor?”
