Doctor Who Target 2022 The Androids of Tara

Available to order from and

“Why is your first impulse to reach for your swords and never a screwdriver?”

The Doctor and Romana’s search for the fourth segment of the all-powerful Key to Time leads them to the planet Tara, where courtly intrigue and romantic pageantry employ the most sophisticated technology.

Within hours of arriving, Romana is mistaken for a powerful princess and the Doctor forced to dally with robotic royalty – and both are quickly embroiled in the scheming ambitions of the wicked Count Grendel. Finding the segment of the Key is easy enough, but escaping with it in one piece will prove an altogether more colourful affair…

    Just wondering, but why are they re-releasing the Androids of Tara and The Stones of Blood? Would have thought re-releases like Planet of the Spiders, Robot, the Doomsday Weapon, the Dæmons or even The Sea-Devils would have been re-released instead of Androids and Stones

      Technically this is a new novelisation as the original version was by Terrance Dick’s. I presume that this is manuscript that David Fisher wrote for the audiobook release – or perhaps a cut-down version of it.
