    Russell T Davies has said in the novel of Rose there is scene they cut, bits they couldn’t afford to film, new friends for Mikey, more about the file in Clive’s shed and we get more Jackie

    the daleks on the cover of the day of the doctor novel bear a resemblance to a type mentioned within engines of war, some sort of paradigm/time war dalek hybrid

    Think I might go for a couple of these. Christmas Invasion and Day of the Doctor.
    Love those episodes.

    I like the look of these. I greatly enjoyed the ‘Target’ books growing up in the 1980’s. Two books in this range I’m most interested in are ‘Day of the Doctor, and especially ‘City of Death’.
