Target Trawl

For many, the words Doctor Who and Target novelisation go together like jelly and baby or Yartek and Voord. In a time where recording TV was often impossible, these novelizations offered fans a chance to relive the very best the show had to offer… and Timelash.

Sometimes they were slavishly accurate to what had been transmitted. Sometimes they were anything but. Often they had rather nice covers.

Join writer and fan Nick Mellish as he reads and reviews every single one of them and writes the words “Terrance” and “Dicks” more than any man rightly should.

From David Whitaker to Jodie Whittaker, Target Trawl is a celebration of Doctor Who in its literary form—from the sublime to the ridiculously sublime.

Based on the highly popular column from the magazine Whotopia.
