Description


About Time vol. 7 continues an examination of the real-world social-political context in which each Doctor Who story was made, this time focusing on Series 1 and 2 of the revamped series (2005 to 2006) starring Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant. Essays in this volume include: Why Now? Why Wales?; RT Phone Home?; Is the New Series More Xenophobic?; Why is Trinity Wells on Jackie's Telly?; He Remembers This How?; What's Happened to the Daleks?; Why Doesn't Anyone Read Any More?; Reapers - Err, What?; What's So Great About the 51st Century?; Gay Agenda? What Gay Agenda?; Does Being Made in Wales Matter?; Did He Fall or Was He Pushed?; Bad Wolf - What, How and Why?: What's a 'Story' Now?; How Long is Harriet in No. 10?; Has All the Puff 'Totally' Changed Things?; Stunt Casting: What Are the Dos and the Dont's?; The Great Powell Estate Debate; Is Arthur the Horse a Companion?; Are Credited Authors Just Hired Hands?; How Many Cyber-Races Are There?; and more.

About the Author


Dorothy Ail's writing has appeared in publications such as Outside In: 160 New Perspectives on 160 Classic Doctor Who Stories by 160 Writers, Obverse Press's Liberating Earth and one of the more recondite entries in Chicks Dig Gaming.

Louise Jameson has enjoyed an extensive career as an actress, appearing in TV series that include EastEnders, Bergerac and Tenko. She is especially beloved for her portrayal of Leela on Doctor Who (1977-1978).

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).
