Target Books' Doctor Who output in 1987 matched the pace of new novelisations in 1986. It was also the first year since 1973 in which no novelisations of the current Doctor were published. Instead, the First Doctor was featured in the majority of the adaptations that year. Target also produced the first BBC-sanctioned plans of how to build the TARDIS exterior, along with an all-new collection of comic gags by Tim Quinn and Dicky HowettThe Doctor Who Fun Book.
