Target Books' Doctor Who output in 1984 was aggressive. Though dominated by tales of the Fifth Doctor, the first three Doctors returned to the range. It was an especially good year for the Second Doctor, who had two new adaptations.

Publishing notes Edit

  • After two years of using photographic covers for the Fifth Doctor novelisations, Target resumed the use of artistic covers for that Doctor's era (made possible by simply omitting the Doctor from the artwork).
