I mean, I am sympathetic to his project, but man, he doesn't half go on.
Agreed. There comes a point in some of the "TARDIS Eruditorum" articles where my eyes glaze over. I've never made it through the "Rose" entry, which he's said is the longest one, and in some of the more experimental entries the form gets in the way of the content. (The Interference entry is actually very good, but you wouldn't know it if you tried to read it the way it's presented.) Yet some articles, like the one on "The Five Faces of Doctor Who," that are stunning pieces of critique. I supported the Kickstarter, and I'm looking forward to having this series of footnotes to About Time on my shelf.
