Doctor Who and the Christmas Invasion

The first of the ‘Doctor Who’ Christmas specials has been novelized as part of the retro TARGET Collection. Jenny Colgan adapted it from Russell T Davies’ original script – the showrunner confirmed to return to the show in 2023. In these pages, you’ll find out all about the Tenth Doctor’s first adventure with a stocking full of extra details. It’s perfect reading for a Christmas evening until you hear the robot Santa band start to play outside. Several other modern episodes of ‘Doctor Who’ have been adapted, including ‘Rose.’

K9 Women’s Slippers

Now, the TARDIS’s best friend can not only repel Krargs and seal black holes but also keep feet warm.

Time Lord Victorious: Defender of the Daleks

Last year’s Time Lord Victorious event was an epic story that connected several Doctors over multimedia and brought us Daleks, Ood, and the hideous new enemy, the Kotturah. Defender of the Daleks collects the story contribution from Titan comics. A perfect gift for fans of Doctor Who and comic books, it features excellent characterization, stunning art, and one of the most sarcastic Daleks anyone’s met for a while.

Doctor Who’ 17′ Scarf

Classic ‘Doctor Who’ is making its way to Blu-ray with a host of amazing special features. Here’s one of the latest releases featuring all four stories from the Seventh Doctor’s first year – that’s Season 24 in old currency. It’s when the show threw off a lot of criticisms of the 1980s and embarked in a direction that would inspire its revival in 2005. It’s 1987, and the TARDIS is heading for Lakertya, Paradise Towers, Iceworld, and Wales.

What does an Angel have to say? There’s only one way to find out. Squeeze, but maybe don’t blink.
