Targeting Retro Love

Ever wanted to see new episodes of Doctor Who transformed into the style of classic Target novelisation covers?

Well want no more as Gallifrey Base forum user Old Type 40 has been busy re-imagining the Russell T. Davies era through theses magnificent covers via the Doctor Who Reprint Society.

Like the novels that inspired these covers there’s no shortage of imagination on show here – some, like the brilliant cover for Time Crash – give just enough of a hint as to what a writer could do when not limited by budget or production practicalities. Others are dead on interpretations right down to the ‘and the’ clause added to The Last of the Time Lords cover.

We particularly like the gem accompanying this article, particularly apt given current rumours, we feel not to mention beautifully composed!

There all worth checking out and, what’s more, the set isn’t complete yet.

So remember to keep checking in with Old Type 40 to see just now Target might have tackled the Moffat era.

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
