Upcoming Doctor Who Target book range includes Thirteenth Doctor adventure

Seven Doctors in seven unforgettable adventures join the Doctor Who Target book range, all publishing on 11th March 2021, each with newly commissioned cover artwork by Anthony Dry.

These latest novelisations, almost all written by the original writers of the TV episodes, will help Target fans finally complete their classic-era collection, and take the Target range into its next incarnation.


For Doctor Who fans, the range of novelisations published by Target Books in the 1970s and 1980s hold a special place. There was a novel published for almost every Doctor Who serial between 1963 and 1989, with a very few (five, actually) notable exceptions.

Since 2012, BBC Books has been successfully reissuing these classic paperbacks and expanding the Target range to include all-new novelisations of modern-era Doctor Who episodes.

These seven novelisations include the long-awaited Target editions of Eric Saward’s Resurrection of the Daleks and Revelation of the Daleks; The Pirate Planet by James Goss which is based on the scripts by Douglas Adams; as well as a reissue of Gary Russell’s novelisation of The TV Movie starring Paul McGann.

To complete the set are three new-era novelisations: The Crimson Horror by Mark Gatiss, Dalek by Robert Shearman, and The Witchfinders by Joy Wilkinson.


The Witchfinders is the first Thirteenth Doctor adventure to be published on the Target list, and the first to carry the new-look Target-branding, with the current Doctor Who logo, that will appear on all future Target releases.


You can pre-order all these Target novelisations now ahead of their release on 11th March 2021.
