Doctor Who: Print The Legend

This lavish, 116-page bookazine is the essential guide to novelisations – hardback, paperback and audio adaptations of television stories.

Highlights include profiles of leading authors, a section on collecting rarities, a look at the recording of the audiobooks and a tribute to illustrator Chris Achilléos. Exclusives include a previously unpublished extract from The Enemy of the World, the book that legendary Doctor Who writer David Whitaker was working on before his death in 1980.

“The first of these books was published in 1964, and there have been 223 to date,” says editor Marcus Hearn. “This special issue includes details on every single one, with cover illustrations, information about reprints, foreign-language editions and much more.”

Each issue of Print the Legend comes with a free CD audiobook, randomly selected from the BBC Audiobooks Doctor Who range.
