Target Books' Doctor Who output in 1989 slowed slightly compared to the previous three years. Ten novelisations were offered during the year, with the First and Seventh Doctors getting four apiece, while the Sixth Doctor grabbed the remaining two. The centrepiece of the year was likely the two-volume version of The Daleks' Master Plan.

Also, a couple of the so-called "Missing Episodes" of the original Season 23 made their way into print as well, in an unusual case of novelising something which had never been broadcast.
