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.

    Anyone know which ten books have been chosen for volume 2?

      Actually I’m presuming the ten books are split over the two volumes. Five in each, roughly 200 pages each making the roughly 1000 pages these are.

      I presume that the ten are split over the 2 volumes but actually it would be great if they decided to do more! I can hope!

      I think it’s probably five novelizations per book, so it’s the same ten that were voted for.
