Doctor Who: Whos On Target

Doctor Who: Whos On Target
Description:
Welcome to Whos On Target - the podcast where we discuss the Target range of classic Dr Who books from the 1970s and 80s. If you missed Dr Who on TV in those pre-DVD days - you missed it forever! Unless, of course, you bought the Target novelization. So jump aboard the TARDIS, set the time rotor for late 20th century Earth, and join us as, with a wheezing, groaning sound, we discuss, analyse and reminisce Whos On Target. We not only read the novelisations, but listen to and review the audiobook versions that are available. We also have some fun, a lighthearted look at the world of Doctor Who fandom and we will probably wander off into other areas of the Doctor Who world as the mood takes us! We are a mixture of Target and Doctor Who fans old and new - some of us read the original Targets on first release, others have come to them fresh and so we have a mixture of opinions and perspectives.
