Wasn't Barbara Wright wonderful... so sensible and so down-to-Earth... except when she attempted to change the course of Aztec history. But she did it with the best of intentions!
Fans of Doctor Who were quite rightly well-chuffed when the fledgling Target books announced a new series of 'original' novels featuring The Assistants of Doctor Who back in the primeval seventies - one dedicated to the further adventures of TV's sixth favourite history teacher.
Sadly only one was published (and even that was only available in selected outlets).
The 'Assistants' range of novels was shelved until the eighties when Target decided it needed to inflict 'Turlough and the Earth Link Dilemma' on the world.
And the rest is history.
