Overview

Constituting the largest reference work on Doctor Who ever written, the six-volume About Time strives to become the ultimate reference guide to the world's longest-running science fiction program. Written by 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, Wood dissects 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 6 examines Doctor Who Seasons 22 to 26 (1985 to 1989) - the end of the show's classic run, starring Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy - as well as the 1996 TV Movie starring Paul McGann. Among other things, About Time 6 answers such vitally important Who questions as Is Continuity a Pointless Waste of Time?, What are the Oddest Romances in the Programme's History? and Does Paul McGann Count?

Author Biography

Since the far-off days of About Time 7, when most people were reasonably sure what number came immediately before 9, Tat Wood has been working further About Time installments and totally non-Doctor-Who-related works (one of which, World History in Minutes, is available through Quercus Books and all good remaindered book shops).
