Target Books' Doctor Who output in 1979 was entirely of Fourth Doctor adaptations, save for the seminal novelisation of The War Games. It was thus the first year that the Third Doctor had been ignored by Target since 1973. Target also made its first attempt at novelisations specifically aimed at younger readers, with the book Junior Doctor Who and the Giant Robot.
