About Time 1 (Seasons 1 to 3)
An Unauthorized Guide to the Doctor Who TV Show

by Tat Wood and Lawrence Miles

About Time vol. 1 covers Seasons 1 to 3 of “Doctor Who,” focusing on the William Hartnell era of “Doctor Who” 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 Hartnell story in the context of the year/historical period it was produced, determining just how topical the stories were.

Essays in this volume include: “Where Did All of This Come From?”, “Who Really Created the Daleks?”, “What Makes the TARDIS Work?”, “Whom Did They Meet at the Roof of the World?”, “Can You Rewrite History, Even One Line?”, “How Telepathic is He?”, “’60s Doctor Who Cultural Primer: Why Z Cars?”, “What Kind of Future Did We Expect?”, “How Many Significant Galaxies Are There?”, “How Important Were the Books?”, “What Are the Most Mod Stories?”, “What’s the Dalek Timeline?”, “What Was the BBC Thinking?”, “What Are These Stories Really Called?”, “Marrying Troilus: What is She Doing?”, “Which Sodding Delegate is Which?”, “What’s Wrong With Dalek History?”, “Are Steven and Dodo Related?”, “What’s the Timeline of the Far Future?”, “What Was Children’s TV Like Back Then?”, “Did the BBC Actually Like Doctor Who?”, “Is His Name Really ‘Who’?
