The Essential Terrance Dicks Volume 1 Hardcover

Available to order from www.amazon.co.uk

About the Author:

Terrance Dicks became Script Editor of Doctor Who in 1968, co-writing Patrick Troughton’s classic final serial, The War Games, and editing the show throughout the entire Jon Pertwee era to 1974. He wrote many iconic episodes and serials for the show after, including Tom Baker’s first episode as the Fourth Doctor, Robot; Horror at Fang Rock in 1977; State of Decay in 1980; and the 20th anniversary special, The Five Doctors in 1983.

Terrance novelised over sixty of the original Doctor Who stories for Target books, including classics like Doctor Who and the Abominable Snowmen and Doctor Who and the Auton Invasion, inspiring a generation of children to become readers and writers. He died in August 2019, only weeks before the publication of his final Doctor Who short story, ‘Save Yourself’, in The Target Storybook.

    I wonder if these will all be Target Books, or if some of Terrance Dick’s Virgin/BBC Books work will get republished in one of these. I’d love it if one of these books contained World Game.

      Just reread world game last year, great fun. No, these are meant to be 10 target books, voted for in late 2019 for publication in 2020, delayed fir obvious reasons!
      The ten books were I believe:

      – The Five Doctors
      – The Auton Invasion
      – The Genesis of the Daleks
      – The Abominable Snowmen
      – The Wheel in Space
      – Dalek Invasion of Earth
      – The Pyramids of Mars
      – The Horror of Fang Rock
      -The Talons of Weng-Chiang
      – The Day of the Daleks

      It was a shame those who voted picked 4 that had been reprinted but I’m happy with the others. And at £25 each it makes the individual books a £5 which is decent. One way to think of the costs is the new reprints at £8 each making the £4 reprints at roughly £2 each.
