Description

About Time vol. 5 covers Seasons 18 to 21 of "Doctor Who," focusing on the end of Tom Baker's tenure as the Doctor, the whole of the Peter Davison era and the start of Colin Baker's time with the show in mind-bending detail. 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), authors Lawrence Miles and Tat Wood will examine each Davison 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 --- just to name a few --- "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?"
