William Hartnell - First Doctor

1963 - 1966

One day, I shall come back. Yes, I shall come back. Until then there must be no regrets. No tears. No anxieties. Just go forward in all your beliefs, and prove to me that I am not mistaken in mine.

The First Doctor

Novelisations

From the early 1970s to the early 1990s almost every television adventure was novelised by Target books, the paperback division of WH Allen, and later an imprint of Virgin Publishing. Early adventures were stand alone novels, sometimes with new companions in the story, but later on they became novelisations of the story.
