BBC Books has released cover artwork for its Doctor Who Target range with three new 60th anniversary titles available January 2024
The collection are novelisations of the three 2023 Doctor Who specials, which will feature David Tennant as the Fourteenth Doctor and Catherine Tate as Donna Noble. Each episode’s novelisation will also be available as an eBook.
Each book, The Star Beast by Gary Russell, Wild Blue Yonder by Mark Morris, and The Giggle by James Goss has specially commissioned cover artwork by Anthony Dry.
Launched in 1973, Target Books published novelisations of almost every Doctor Who serial aired between 1963 and 1989. BBC Books began reissuing these classic paperbacks in 2012, and in 2018 expanded the Target range to include all-new novelisations of modern-era Doctor Who episodes. This year, Target Books celebrates its 50th year publishing Doctor Who books.
The new novelisations will cost £9.99 each and will be published on 11 January 2024.

Ncuti Gatwa will star in his first full Doctor Who episode as the Fifteenth Doctor in the Doctor Who Christmas special alongside Millie Gibson as companion Ruby Sunday in December 2023.
A new 8-episode Doctor Who series starring Ncuti Gatwa and Millie Gibson will debut in Spring of 2024 followed by the 2024 Christmas special later in the year.
