The Tides of Time – issues online

Every issue of The Tides of Time published since 1990 is available below as a PDF, most with a contents listing. Following the zine through the years reveals changing tastes, developing writing styles, the broadening of scope beyond Doctor Who and back again, and of course through the cover reproductions the advance of easily available desktop publishing and copying technology.

A fair amount of the material has always been inward-looking; it’s a magazine which was born in the pre-internet age, and for most of its history circulated exclusively among people who knew each other. Nevertheless there have been a number of articles over the years which said new things about Doctor Who or which were very representative of where wider Doctor Who fandom stood on matters connected with the programme at the time. One was published in the third volume of the Time Unincorporated series published by Mad Norwegian Press.

Additionally, these were fanzines definitely created for relaxation in between writing essays, attending lectures, long hours spent in labs or libraries, rather than always seeking to break new ground – though some did so and still do.
