Not as good as previous volumes,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: About Time: The Unauthorized Guide to Doctor Who, 2005-2006; Series 1 & 2 (Paperback)
Maybe it's because the author can't draw on decades of hindsight about these episodes, or maybe it's because it misses the gentle sarcastic humour of former co-author Lawrence Miles, but this book somehow just wasn't as enjoyable as the previous ones.
There's too much pedantic listing of production schedules, and not enough new insight to put the ideas behind the episodes into an unexpected wider context.
Despite that, this is still one of the better episode guides out there. It's just disappointing compared to the earlier ones.
