Note:  This is the first About Time volume to cover the new series, although the cover blurb (partly copied from previous volumes) erroneously mentions “the original series” as its scope.

Cover blurb:
...the unauthorized & ambitiously definitive guide to Who...

The babyfaced killers who took over Downing Street, giggling and farting. The clockwork robots chasing Madame de Pompadour throughout her life. The afternoon the Daleks and the Cybermen clashed over the Streets of London.

These aren’t just the greatest, strangest or most Doctor-Who-like moments in Doctor Who. These are the moments that make up an era, part of a universe of things we’d never seen before and never expected. And this is the all-purpose handbook to that universe, both on- and off-screen. Contained within these volumes is everything you could reasonably want to know about the original series of Doctor Who, from the nuances of Cyberman culture to the science of the Eye of Harmony, from the programme’s most triumphant successes to its most bizarre logical flaws, from its roots in the 1960s to its legacy in the here and now.

But above all else, this is a history. A history of the Doctor Who continuum; a history of the way the series changed across the span of a generation; and a history of those who grew up with it, of what in meant to the children of the ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s.

This is, in a very real sense, About Time.

Written by Tat Wood, About Time Volume VII dissects Doctor Who Series 1 to 2 — the relaunch of the show for a whole new generation, starring Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant. Among other things, this book strives to answer such vitally important questions as “How Many Cyber-Races Are There?", “Is Arthur the Horse a Companion?” and “Gay Agenda? What Gay Agenda?".
