Previous books in the series, which covered the era when 'Doctor Who' was a serial, devoted a separate chapter to each individual story. Now that the episodes are mainly one-off self-contained stories, each one gets its own chapter, though for the occasional two-parter some of the sections are combined.Read more ›
About Time 7 is no exception to this mix, although it is perhaps an improvement this time around, with slightly more care taken with the proof reading, and side articles that feel more directly relevant to the content than some of the long-winded academic indulgences on popular culture seen in previous editions.
The ‘classic’ series having been dealt with in books 1-6, this time the reader sets out with trepidation to see what the range will make of the ‘new’ revived series, with just the single Christopher Eccleston and first David Tennant seasons covered here. Contrary to comments in some magazine reviews, there isn’t in fact an undue negativity towards the remodelled series (although dismissive references to Matt Smith’s tenure and snide remarks about Steven Moffat suggest that irritation levels may rise in later volumes). Indeed, some traditionally looked down-on episodes which might have expected a good kicking are in fact treated surprisingly fairly, although - be warned - better-liked ones are occasionally assailed. Conversely, some stories, which are initially taken apart for their illogicality and ill-conceived plotting, can unexpectedly be given positive reviews in the final ‘critique’ sections, judged as good pieces of TV drama nonetheless.Read more ›
