purplecat: The Tardis (Doctor Who)

It is difficult to explain how incredibly amazing this book was when I first randomly purchased it from The Children's Book Shop on Oxford's Broad Street circa 1980. The truly incredible part about it was that it contained summaries of every Doctor Who story up to Sarah's departure in The Hand of Fear. I spent hours pouring over those summaries which were the only real access one had to information about those episodes though the book recommends to the reader, at the end, the range of Target novelisations of which there were "27 in print and more in preparation".

I have very fond memories of this book. :-) My class library in the 3rd year of junior school had the earlier edition, and like you I spent hours reading it - then bought this one when I saw it in a shop. There's no doubt it was a significant fuel for my love of the show, the history and the behind the scenes stories.
