Abstract

From early examples such as "Star Trek" and "Sapphire and Steel" to more contemporary shows including "Life on Mars" and "The Vampire Diaries," time has frequently been used as a device to allow programme makers to experiment stylistically and challenge established ways of thinking. Time on Television offers readers a range of exciting, accessible, yet intellectually rigorous essays that consider the many and varied ways in which telefantasy shows have explored this subject, providing the reader with a greater understanding of the importance of time to the success of genre on the small screen.
