Sounds great. But I'll wait for the price to drop substantially.

Same. It's not like we don't know the story...

Wow! One of my favourite ever stories rewritten by a great writer who can write brilliantly in the style of Season 17 in his sleep! Happy, happy, happy.

(I didn't actually look at the price...)

Interesting, but definitely one for the year end sales for me.

My initial reaction was to punch the air. Then my inner librarian chimed in "this is going to be a hardback, it won't look right in your display cabinet with all your paperback Target novelisation.". So, hopefully a paperback edition will follow.

My thoughts exactly, Cat. And frankly, I don't actually think this story deserves such lavish treatment in the first place.

I'm tempted to check it out at some point, I'm fond of the story.

But with Shada novelised, there will only be the Saward stories left. Although it does look as if jolly old Eric will have to drop off his perch before anyone will have a chance to adapt those scripts.

This is true. Although having said that my views on the questionable validity of treating Shada as a legitimate piece of televisual Who does colour my viewpoint somewhat I'll grant you.
