    I’m delighted these are back, and I wish Jodie had had more of them. But £15 each?? It’s prohibitively expensive when you can’t go into a bookshop and think I’ll get all 3. £45 later. I don’t think so.

      I’ve decided, reluctantly, against them. Rather just get the target books now.

      Dunno, I’ve always found the Targets overrated. They tend to distill stories down far too much for my liking. The novelisations should feel longer, not shorter IMO. It doesn’t help that I think they choose poor ones to do, except for when they’re concurrent releases like the 60th anniversary trio.

      Complete opposite for me now. I find the original fiction either hard work or just a little too childish now. Love the targets though.

    It’s about time the trio-books returned!
