1 Target Novelizations Making A Comeback on Sun Nov 12, 2017 4:13 pm

Rose, The Christmas Invasion, Day of the Doctor and Twice Upon A Time are all being adapted. RTD and Moffat are writing some of them, though Christmas Invasion is adapted by someone else

In an update, it looks like Moffat's not writing Twice Upon A Time's adaptation, instead Paul Cornell will.

Good lord, those episodes were bad enough when they were on TV. I couldn't imagine having to sit there and actually READ through them all.

I managed to adapt an episode of the 80s TMNT series, which is about 25 minutes, and I wound up with 55 pages. LOL

In the DWM review for Cornell's Twice Upon a Time novelization, it makes mention that The Doctor married a third time to an unknown spouse during his tenure at St. Lukes' University

They said it on their Twitter feed. I agree, the books don't seem to feature on their website. I looked, too.

They have an actual physical book shop. It sells other things, not just their small range. That would explain it.
