In About Time, the whole of classic Doctor Who is examined through the lens of the real-world social and political changes — as well as ongoing developments in television production — that influenced the series in ways big and small over the course of a generation. Armed with these guidebooks, readers will be able to cast their minds back to 1975, 1982 and other years to best appreciate the series’ content and character.
In the About Time 3 Second Edition, Tat Wood vastly expands upon the discussion of the Jon Pertwee era of “Doctor Who,” bringing this installment of the About Time series up to the size and elaborate depth of its fellows. All told, this Second Edition has nearly three times the material of its predecessor.
Many existing essays and entries have been greatly retooled, and evidence from the new “Doctor Who” series (unbroadcast when this book was first published) has been taken into account. New essays in this edition include “The Daemons: What the Hell Are They Doing?”, “Where Were Torchwood When All This Was Happening?” and “Is This Any Way to Run a Galactic Empire?”.
