Doc­tor Who: The His­tor Col­lec­tion y

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - Books -

Re­lease Date: 12 Fe­bru­ary

Pub­lisher: BBC Books Eight re­jack­ets of old Who nov­els, in­clud­ing three by writ­ers who later wrote for the TV show: Paul Cor­nell, Mark Gatiss and Gareth Roberts. Cor­nell’s is Sev­enth Doc­tor story Hu­man Na­ture ( 1995), later the ba­sis of a David Ten­nant two- parter. It’s an ex­cel­lent book on its own terms, plus the dif­fer­ences be­tween the two ver­sions are in­ter­est­ing; the orig­i­nal is much darker, and able to give the cen­tral love story a bit more depth.
