- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
Constituting the largest reference work on "Doctor Who" ever written, the multi-volume "About Time" strives to become the ultimate reference guide to the world's longest-running science fiction program. Written by Lawrence Miles ("Faction Paradox") and long-time sci-fi commentator Tat Wood, "About Time" focuses on the continuity of "Doctor Who" (its characters, alien races and the like), but also examines the show as a work of social commentary. In particular, Miles and Wood dissect the politics and social issues that shaped the show during its unprecedented 26-year run (from 1963 to 1989), detailing how the issues of the day influenced this series. As part of this grand opus, About Time 5 examines "Doctor Who" Seasons 18 to 21 (1980 to 1984) - the end of Tom Baker's time with the show, the whole of the Peter Davison era and the introduction of Colin Baker as the Doctor. Among other things, About Time 5 answers such vitally important "Who" questions as "Why Are There So Many Doubles in the Universe?" and "Which Stories Have the Best Body-Counts?"
