Collected Works of Terrance Dicks: BBC Books to Publish Volume of Target Novelisations

BBC Books will publish a commemorative single-volume Collected Works of the late Terrance Dicks in 2020. The lavish hardback will include some of his most popular titles from the Target range, which he contributed over 60 books.

And they want your help with the selection!

On Monday 18th November 2019, BBC Books will be offering Doctor Who fans the chance to vote on social media for their favourite works by Terrance Dicks, to be included in the collection.

The World Cup of Terrance Dicks will take place over five days on the Doctor Who BBC Books Twitter account (@DWBBCBooks), where 64 of Terrance’s Doctor Who novelisations will be sorted into 16 groups of 4, and each day fan votes will get us closer to a final winner.

The book will then be based around the 10 novels that make to the top of the tournament. Fans can keep track of the tournament through the hashtag #TerranceDicksWorldCup.
