About Time serves as the definitive (albeit unofficial) guide to Doctor Who Seasons 12 to 17, the main bulk of the Tom Baker era. Written by Lawrence Miles (Faction Paradox) and Tat Wood (SFX, TV Zone), About Time not only examines the usual continuity concerns (alien races, etc.) in bursting detail, but looks at how the political / social issues of the 1970s affected the show's production. Essays in this volume include: Where (and When) is Gallifrey?, Why Couldn't the BBC Just Have Spent More Money?, Why Does Earth Keep Getting Invaded? and War of the Daleks: Should Anyone Believe a Word of It?
