    So happy that this is on the way! For the next potential release, let’s hope that someone can convince Eric Saward to let Resurrection & Revelation of the Daleks be novelised so that we can have all classic TV stories in book form!

    Wonder which version this will be? I’d like it to be sarah and harry, but suspect it will be romana one or two with k9. Whichever it is, i’m just pleased it’s coming out…

      I’d love for an adaption of Dark Dimension.

    Very excited for this. Love what James Goss has done thus far so should be pretty great. Now I’m just hoping for Resurrection and Revelation to get novels of some kind.

    The Scratchman screenplay is actually credited to James Hill, from a story by Tom Baker and Ian Marter. Hill took incorporated their ideas, but undoubtedly it’s him that deserves the lion’s share of the credit creatively.

    Oh hell yeah. I really enjoyed Krikkitmen, so I’m totally down to see more. Though I’m wondering if James Goss will try a different writing approach for this one, considering he’s not writing an Douglas Adams-era Four/Romana story, and rather a Season 10 era story.

    I also wonder if Tom Baker actually has much input in this draft. He’s co-credited on the page but that could be simply honorary and based on his original notes.
