Friend of the show and Talking Who to You cohost J.G. McQuarrie joins Alasdair to discuss the long history of Doctor Who in print. We start with the Target novelizations, which served as the effective rerun and home video release for stories before VHS, DVD, and streaming were even imagined. We look at the 7th Doctor's continued adventures in the Virgin New Adventures, which represent perhaps the darkest, most complex period in the franchise's entire history. We consider the 8th Doctor's run as incumbent Doctor in his own series of BBC Books, providing a kind of dry run for many of the creative decisions Russell T. Davies would make with the new series. And we touch on the New Series Adventures, the tie-in books for the revived show. If you've ever wondered what Doctor Who has to offer on the page, consider this your primer!
