For the fiftieth anniversary BBC Books are planning a large number of releases with details so far emerging (on the Bookseller website) for January / February, a massive set of releases in March (all featured in the picture showing the new artwork) and some new titles for April.
The news story doesn’t give everything away but I have managed to do some digging…
January / February Releases
A 31st January re-release for Shada which seems rather soon as it is not long out anyway but is worth a read and is the Douglas Adams script with polishing from Gareth Roberts. Valentine’s day (February 14th !) sees a quikc read title The Silurian Gift by Mike Tucker.
March the 7th treats us to a novel for each Doctor! These all have new covers as shown above (and taken from the @domcooperdesign feed) and the full list is:
- Ten Little Aliens by Stephen Cole

Now we get some new titles, including one from Nick himself! The details are:
