5.0 étoiles sur 5 Baker Davison Baker (and JN-T) 21 avril 2009
Par Timothy Haugh - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
In About Time 5, Who experts Miles and Wood continue with their excellent, detailed work on the series. In this volume, they cover seasons 18 to 21, the last season of the Tom Baker era, through Peter Davison's tenure, to the beginning of Colin Baker's years.

This book marks the beginning of the John Nathan-Turner era of producership, a time that is rife with criticism of the man who brought the series to it's end in the late `80's. Though not sparing JN-T, I was pleased to see that their analysis is quite balanced. JN-T very possibly saved Doctor Who from an even earlier demise and many of the Davison-era stories are quite good. I have to admit, I always was a fan of Peter Davison.

The books have always been very "British-insider" with a number of references that American might find hard to follow. Still, I think even the authors are stretching a bit when they add a section of "Oh, Isn't That...?" to track the appearance of well-known guest stars, which became a hallmark of the series during this time. The fact is, the guest stars Miles & Wood detail were not necessarily famous before their appearance on the show and, with rare exception, are not particularly famous at all. Perhaps this is a criticism of the show that needs to be re-examined.

Still, this is an invaluable resource for what is arguably the greatest SF television show of all time. I wouldn't have missed having it on my shelf.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Utterly Enjoyable - No Doctor Who fan should be without it 14 février 2006
Par R David Francis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Since I don't see a detailed review of this here, I'll record a few of my thoughts.

I first saw Doctor Who on my local PBS station, probably around 1980. I have been a fan every since. In fact, when I got married it became a passion that my wife and I shared, and my 17-year-old son has enjoyed it for as long as he can remember. Currently, we only have those episodes of the original series that have been released on DVD here in the US.

This book reviews Doctor Who seasons 18-21. That covers the final season of the Fourth Doctor (tall, curly brown hair, long scarf), the entirety of the Fifth Doctor's work (medium build, thinning blond hair, wore a white suit with celery on the lapel), and the first story of the Sixth Doctor (tall, curly blond hair, wore an (almost?) painfully technicolor ensemble).

The <u>About Time</u> series notes when each Doctor Who story was first broadcast; the credited cast members (and who they were); the number of viewers for each episode of the story; how people are most likely to remember which one this is; and the cliffhanger moments ending each episode. More importantly, it covers the continuity of the series: revealed facts about the history and background of not only the Doctor and his companions, but of other significant recurring characters (not just allies, but villains as well); details about each planet, and each alien race, including the Time Lords themselves; and even a breakdown of important facts about the TARDIS. It also lays out what each story is really about, looking at the influence of the time in which the story was written, English culture, and other SF sources. It provides a critique (sometimes two!) of each story, and interesting behind-the-scenes tidbits. Finally, almost every story is accompanied by a detailed sidebar essay into the background of the show, attempts to resolve conflicting information given in the show, and ponderings into both physics and metaphysics.

It's a fascinating look at, into, behind, and through each story, where you may be presented with the real-world reason for an oddity alongside an analysis of how it can still all fit together in the context of the show.

I enjoyed this immensely. I rarely read something twice in quick succession, but I'm about to re-read this after only finishing it about six months ago, in anticipation of getting the next volume.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 As the series decays.... 10 novembre 2008
Par Michael Valdivielso - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Even as Lawrence Miles and Tat Wood talk about the slow downfall and decay of the Doctor Who series their own work starts to suffer. They have spelling mistakes, they misnumber episodes, some sentences don't make sense. Or maybe it is just because I'm American? Also there seems to be a feeling that they are starting to get on each other's nerves. I hope they write about the new Doctors. I do enjoy the information about British history and culture. Just one volume left!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The most comprehensive DOCTOR WHO episode guide around 19 mars 2007
Par Trey - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This fifth volume (of a projected six) in the ABOUT TIME series covers seasons 18-21 of DOCTOR WHO, examining adventures of the fourth and fifth Doctors. In addition to production notes and an critique of each episodes, there are notes and essays on continuity and the series in a cultural context. While not as handy as a one volume guide, the ABOUT TIME series makes for a much more interesting read.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Interesting and funny, but occasionally frustrating 11 juin 2009
Par Hatbox Dragon - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
A guide to Seasons 18-21 (1980-84) of Doctor Who: the last series to feature Tom Baker as the Fourth Doctor and all three seasons featuring Peter Davison as the Fifth Doctor. Each story is given its own entry and discussed through standard categories: things to note, firsts and lasts, character notes, sources, critiques, some production and broadcast information, etc. There is also a series of short essays on topics that cut across multiple stories and seasons. There are no plot synopses, though, and since this is not a BBC-authorised production, there are no pictures. Familiarity with the show is assumed.

Good points:
- A great deal of information about each story
- A great deal of contextual background, especially about the BBC and TV technology and culture in Britain, which illuminates the series in unexpected ways
- No cheap gossip
- Extremely funny at points
- Provides a lot of food for thought, even if you don't agree with what's being said
- Few proofing errors
- Good quality paper and clear print.

Bad points:
- Not always as clearly written as it could have been
- Efforts to link everything in-story together and explain away inconsistencies (why bother?) can be undermined by weak reasoning and odd conclusions
- Takes the position that the series was at a low point by this stage, and the authors' tone reflects that
- Nitpicks over things that will mean nothing to younger/non-British viewers (e.g. actor X can't possibly be taken seriously in a certain role because of their appearances in other British TV shows)
- Bit of an "I've been a fan right from the start" attitude
- Each page is very dense with text, so not easy to read if you're tired.

Worth a look for the information content and the readable prose, and because the personal idiosyncrasies make this book more interesting than one that's carefully dry and intent on not giving offence. However, in the end you may find yourself reading this for something to argue with, rather than something to agree with.
