    Gareth Roberts’ inclusion interests me, considering his rather shaky views/slagging of the BBC and Capaldi era in recent years, I figured he may’ve been too controversial.

    Terrance Dicks inclusion puzzles me as he’s said plenty of times in the past that he’d never write for Doctor Who again.

      We’re assuming that this is original prose though as opposed to like a “Reflections” type situation.

    Saw this on Amazon, the author list is impressive. Terrance Dicks, Matthew Sweet, Simon Guerrier, Colin Baker, Matthew Waterhouse, Jenny T Colgan, Jacqueline Rayner, Gareth Roberts, Una McCormack, Steve Cole, Vinay Patel, George Mann, Susie Day, Mike Tucker, Joy Wilkinson & Beverly Sanford. No idea what it is but hopefully it’s some kind of short story collection. Interesting that it’s referred to as the target storybook.

      That’s exactly what I thought boo boo, story or history? The title does seem more fiction than factual though. If it said the target story then I’d assume factual but storybook… hopefully we’ll get more info soon

      I think it might be like a ‘memories of Target books’ sort of thing?

      Judging by the price and page count it seems more like city of death/wheel of ice type thing. I’ve ordered it but if it turns out to be factual rather than fiction I’ll just cancel it. Fingers crossed for fiction!
