Surviving One Year Without ‘Doctor Who’


Novels

Human_Nature_(Doctor_Who)

I don’t think you’ll be surprised to learn that there are Doctor Who novels. After all, producing supplementary media in the form of books have been around for ages. There are literally hundreds of novels to choose from, from straight adaptations of TV episodes, to stories meant to be a continuation of the show during the Wilderness Years.

If you’re curious how Doctor Who could have progressed if it was not cancelled in 1989, read the Virgin New Adventures, continuing the adventures of the Seventh (and later the Eighth) Doctor. As the books were geared for an older audience, they included mature themes, strong language, violence and sexual elements. The revived TV show adapted one New Adventure novel, Paul Cornell’s excellent Human Nature. If you want to see how that story played out with the Seventh Doctor, it’s a great place to start.
