Publishing notes Edit

  • 1974 saw the first wave of new Doctor Who novelisations, predominantly featuring the Third (new) Doctor in recently televised adventures.
  • Script writers were encouraged to fill out their scripts with more detail, giving a larger word count than some of the later novels.
  • These early books continued with the "Frederick Muller" tradition of including black and white illustrations.
