Target Books' Doctor Who output in 1980 was noticeably greater than the previous two years. The year was again Fourth Doctor-heavy, but it saw the return of the First and Third Doctors to the publication schedule. One of the obvious themes in the schedule was a desire to get the Key to Time stories adapted. The work had begun in 1979 with the adaptation of The Ribos Operation. It was largely completed in 1980, save for a novelisation of The Pirate Planet.
