Constituting the largest reference work on Doctor Who ever written, the six-volume About Time strives to become the ultimate reference guide to the world's longest-running science fiction program. Written by Lawrence Miles (Faction Paradox) and long-time sci-fi commentator Tat Wood, About Time focuses on the continuity of Doctor Who (its characters, alien races and the like), but also examines the show as a work of social commentary. In particular, Miles and Wood dissect the politics and social issues that shaped the show during its unprecedented 26-year run (from 1963 to 1989), detailing how the issues of the day influenced this series. As part of this grand opus, About Time 4 examines Doctor Who Seasons 12 to 17 (1975 to 1979)-starring Tom Baker, the actor who popularized the show in America. Among other things, About Time 4 examines how the show's Gothic horror phase and its aftermath, plus answers such vitally important Who questions as Where (and When) is Gallifrey? and Why Couldn't the BBC Just Have Spent More Money?

The second About Time volume to be published, About Time 4 is still quite tentative in its scope, and considering it's intended to cover six whole seasons of Doctor Who it's extremely brief. There are still essays examining the cultural and social context in which Who appeared, although far fewer than in other volumes, and there's still some insightful material about the background of the stories themselves, but compared to the other volumes in the series it looks light. Tom Baker's run is undoubtedly the most popular in the original series, and it's surprising to see it get such short service.
