Doctor Who Target Collection 2024 The Church on Ruby Road Paperback

Available to order from, and

“I’ve been waiting, all this time, for my life to begin. Maybe it’s time to stop waiting. Maybe it’s time to start living.”

Chance. Misfortune. Coincidence. These are the weapons of choice for the Doctor’s latest enemies. And those enemies are very, very hungry…

For Ruby Sunday, this Christmas Eve is a birthday she’ll never forget. It’s the day she joins the Doctor onboard a Goblin ship. The day she learns of dangers from beyond the universe. The day her life really begins… or, perhaps, the day it ends.

The Target novelisation of the first full adventure featuring the Fifteenth Doctor, played by Ncuti Gatwa, and the introduction of his new best friend, Ruby Sunday played by Millie Gibson. Russell T Davies’ original script has been novelised by up-and-coming literary talent Esmie Jikiemi-Pearson.

    Damn, Target format. And just when I was about to break with the hardcover ones. I wonder if those three novels they announced lately will also get this treatment next year. I would much rather get them in paperbacks…

      The three new novels won’t be released as target books. Church is a target book (as stated in the hardcover) so it was always going to get a target paperback. The new novels out this year are not target books so won’t get target paperbacks. In fact they may not get paperback editions at all and if they do they will be expensive.

      Thanks! I just noticed that there will be three Target books in August. So that solves my problem. Will buy Ruby Red in Hardcover, will wait for a pocket Church. Perfect.
