Additional notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Doctor Who Storybook 2010 followed the same successful format as in recent years.
  • So as not to make the Storybook any less "official" than the BBC's offering, the Storybook was allowed to use the BBC logo on the cover, although the box stating "Published with permission of the BBC" was not found on the back this year.
  • The "A letter from the Doctor" has been a regular feature in the Storybooks. This time around the "letter" that was forwarded to the publisher by Russell T Davies (the outgoing showrunner of the TV series) took the form of a heavily interrupted transcript of a transmision.
Like a cryptic puzzle it begins with "Transmission Ends", and ends with "Transmission Begins", Reading from the bottom up each paragraph appears to reflect a Russell T Davies Doctor Who script, with eligible final/first words being:

Although "Don't forget me" were not the final words spoken by the Doctor in The End of Time, they were among the final words spoken to Sarah Jane Smith in The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith.

  • The Storybook was issued with a dustcover that inside the front flap had a short piece updating "The Changing Face of Doctor Who", and in the back flap a short piece on each of the featured writers accompanied by a small photo.
