The Black Archives
August 14th, 2020
Obverse Books have been on the cutting edge of critical monographs regarding selected individual Doctor Who stories since 2016. Imagine an in depth look at the actual stories themselves, as opposed to documentaries which typically tend to focus on behind the scenes filming details rather than the stories themselves. Then toss into the mix a handful of renowned authors from which we have only seen fictional stories such as; Simon Guerrier, Una McCormack (Star Trek), Jonathan Morris, Simon Bucher-Jones and a bountiful bevy of others. And then toss into that mix a good number of virgin authors new to the whole Who realm.
All of The Black Archives books were added to The Time Scales today, for your consideration of reviews of these fine publications.
The Black Archives on The Time Scales;
This may open the question as to if The Time Scales will be adding the series that Obverse Books is also famous for? Faction Paradox?
Yes. The Time Scales will soon add all Faction Paradox books, anthologies and audios for your consideration of reviews. This will also provide many interesting cross references of not only authors but characters that crossed over into Big Finish and Bernice Summerfield.
May you find a great story that you will love!

The Time Scales Website Upgrades
August 12th, 2020
No one likes it when their favorite website or app changes, and we get that. Do not worry, there's not going to be some major overhaul of 'The Time Scales' under new operational management. No executive orders here.
What we will work on are fun and useful additions to the site which will enhance the user experience.
Here are the major new features coming to your screen soon;
1) Draft reviews. Have you ever started or even finished a review only to find it lost when you clicked on 'SUBMIT'? Perhaps to find that your Internet connection was not on, or some other similar disaster? I think we all have. I typed an 800 word review once and it was lost as when I clicked 'Save'. Something happened and it was gone. See, that sucks beyond belief and we are going to prevent that. The main update for September 2020 is being written by Imperial Heathen (Founder) and this will allow you to write reviews over a period of time. It will save your draft reviews (when logged in) and you can take hours or even days now to finish your reviews. Well, once this is complete. It is not active yet but is expected to be in late September.
2) Enhanced images. You will now be able to click on images of covers and see the full sized ones. A beta of this rolled out on August 11th, 2020 and while it works, this is far from complete. It will get better to enhance the visual experience.
3) Forums. Yes, this idea is being tossed around. It would seem that there would be value in people being able to debate reviews in personal exchanges. Let's just all think of that for a minute.
