    The press releases have been calling this and Zygon Invasion the “first” 12th Doctor Target novels due to someone at BBC books forgetting that Twice Upon a Time’s novelization was a thing. Pretty amusing.

      The best bit is not only do they deny it’s existence, they also deny the existence of one of the other NuWho Target books as the official press release said there have been 5 NuWho stories released as Target books, meaning that same person forgot Twice Upon A Time and one other as there are 7; Rose, Dalek, The Christmas Invasion, The Crimson Horror, Day of the Doctor, Twice Upon a Time and The Witchfinders. Maybe their research stopped at the last two

    Will be so interesting how Time constraints affected this story. Rona Munro writes superb Stage Plays, with interesting viewpoints.

    So looking forward to this one.

    As I am for all the new Novelisations.

    I’ll be interested to read this, as my feeling is that it will work better as a novel than as a TV episode
