The twenty-sixth season finale ultimately proved to be the final episode of the original series, and the last weekly episode to be broadcast until 2005. It was the final use of the [[Keff McCulloch]] theme music arrangement, while the current series logo continued to be used for merchandise and books until [[1996]] and it and a version of the [[1987]] opening credits sequence were used again in the [[1993]] special [[TV]]: ''[[Dimensions in Time]]''. It was the final twenty-five-minute episode produced (although ''[[The Sarah Jane Adventures]]'' revived the format in 2007). Although producer [[John Nathan-Turner]] later said he was aware the series was going off the air, and [[Sophie Aldred]], in the documentary ''[[Thirty Years in the TARDIS]]'' said she was told it was cancelled, the BBC did not make any cancellation announcement, and it was widely assumed, and hoped, by fans that a twenty-seventh season would air in 1990. It was the final regular-series appearance of [[Sophie Aldred]] and [[Anthony Ainley]] (though both reprised their characters in later productions not directly considered part of continuity).

  • 20 - PROSE: Doctor Who - The Chase was first published. Written by John Peel, The Chase was the first of a series of Dalek story novelisations by Peel commissioned after Target Books reached an agreement with Terry Nation to allow his remaining Dalek stories to be adapted as novels (before this, TV: The Chase and other Nation-penned Dalek episodes were expected to remain in limbo, novelisation-wise). Around the time of this book's release, it was announced that a similar agreement had been reached with Eric Saward regarding his two Dalek serials, but ultimately these two stories were never adapted.
