Your archivist is suffering from a cold and has spent much of the last couple of days in bed; what work he has been able to do has not made as much sense as he would like, and he has therefore turned to the crafting of a new PDF. Welcome, therefore, to the internet issue 26 of Tides of Time, published in late spring 2000, and edited by Matthew Peacock. It’s a very strong mixture of material, including some of my favourite articles from the entire run, such as David Bickley’s confessions of explaining your fandom at job interviews (I’ve been there too), Fiona Moore’s ‘Continuity – A Modest Proposal’, Al Harrison’s look at the works of J.G. Ballard and Matthew Peacock’s own piece on the rail yards at Barry, unaware that in just over four years Doctor Who, revived, would be filming there. There’s fiction of the adventurous and traditional sorts too, all very much reflecting the era of BBC Books original fiction and showing great affection for the eighth and sixth doctors in particular, though there is an early Big Finish review examining then producer Gary Russell’s policies and how releases such as The Spectre of Lanyon Moor support them.
