PR: TARGET TRAWL (July 2019)

[align=center]Coming Soon from Pencil Tip Publishing[/align]


For Doctor Who fans of a certain age, the Target novelizations of the series are one of its crowning triumphs. Back in 2006, when no-one knew what ‘Brexit’ meant and the show was off-air between seasons, writer and fan Nick Mellish started to review these books in publication order for the fanzine Whotopia.

Now in 2019, when no-one knows what ‘Brexit’ means and the show is off-air between seasons, his journey is complete. Target Trawl contains every installment of his article, redrafted and up-to-date, and carries on reviewing every novelisation, as well as reviews of the Sarah Jane Adventures novelizations, Douglas Adams adaptations and more besides.

Target Trawl will be published this summer.


Nick Mellish lives in the UK where he works in an office and spends much of the time wishing he didn’t. He has been writing for as far back as he can recall and fell in love with Doctor Who at an impressionable age, committing time, money, love and a great portion of his general knowledge to the subject. He has written short stories for numerous anthologies including Seasons of War, Whoblique Strategies and Temporal Logbook 2, articles for fanzines including Fast Return and Whotopia, and reviews for websites including We Are Cult and Doctor Who Online. He once lost a game of Countdown on national television and often talks enthusiastically about Nintendo.

We've got a little surprise for you.

Two weeks early!

Now you can pick up a copy of TARGET TRAWL by visiting ... l/24837362

For many, the words Doctor Who and Target novelisation go together like jelly and baby or Yartek and Voord. In a time where recording TV was often impossible, these novelisations offered fans a chance to relive the very best the show had to offer… and Timelash.

Sometimes they were slavishly accurate to what had been transmitted. Sometimes they were anything but. Often they had rather nice covers. Join writer and fan Nick Mellish as he reads and reviews every single one of them and writes the words “Terrance” and “Dicks” more than any man rightly should.

From David Whitaker to Jodie Whittaker, Target Trawl is a celebration of Doctor Who in its literary form—from the sublime to the ridiculously sublime.

Based on the highly popular column from the magazine Whotopia.
  • The book will be available in Canada, USA, UK, Australia, & New Zealand via Lulu print on demand.
  • 376 pages / 6x9" US Trade Paperback format
