"A Doctor Who Special" from Target Books!

There were two 'special' Target books published in the late 70s. Edited by the late Terrance Dicks, "The Adventures of K9 and other Mechanical Creatures' and 'Terry Nation's (sic) Dalek Special' were large paperbacks fully illustrated with facts, stories and puzzles from your favourite TV sci-fi show. I couldn't tell you whether they actually sold shed-loads but they were the only two. There were no more... 

Until now...

Here a selections of further 'specials' that could've been but weren't... probably for good reason. 





















And if you didn't like them, you can get stuffed... with the amazing Doctor Who Taxidermy Book !

More Spin-off Annuals For Dr Who...

With my own convention season over, I can now get back to updating the blog.


Here's a further selection of spin-off annuals for Doctor Who - companions, villains and monsters this time! One or two familiar designs along with original period ones. 

Hope you like them. Let me know on the Twitter - @andydrewz - any further suggestions from the classic series - the odder, the better!

60s Spin-off Annuals For Dr Who Companions


The 2020 annuals are about to filter their way onto the shelves of WHSmith so now seems as good a time as any to do a few more covers for annuals that could've been.

Here's a selection of spin-off annuals for some of Dr Who's companions from the 1960s - done in a period style. 

Hope you like.

Those Classic 70s Doctor Who Spin-off DVDs!

Philip Madeley ( @pipmadeley ) did a Pertweet (see what he did there?) a few weeks back on the Twitter to celebrate the release of the Blu ray of Season ten. As part of that, he asked me to produce some DVD covers which could be popped into actual DVD cases and sold on eBay in aid of charity. The fact that people bid for them means that some folk will buy anything. But thanks to them we raised a tidy little sum for Cancer Research. Thanks to Pip for suggesting it.

These are the finished sleeves. (You'll need to click on them to read the text)
