Note: A print-on-demand edition (linked via the Lulu logo above) was also released in January 2018 to allow Australia/NZ readers to order the book with much cheaper postage costs. It is identical to the original version, except for having a glossy cover instead of the original’s matt cover.
‘Evolution goes in quantum leaps, but it doesn’t go that fast.’
Full Circle (1980) exemplifies a new production team’s vision at a time for profound change for Doctor Who, rejecting the fantasy of previous years and putting science — in this case, evolution — at the heart of the series. Or does it? This book puts Full Circle under the microscope and discovers a mixed heritage of discredited science, pseudoscience and mysticism, in a story which affects the evolution of the series itself.
