    Novel Experiences: The BBC Books Adventures

  • Starring


Hosted by Robert Dick.

A celebration of Doctor Who novels during what is erroneously called “The Wilderness Years”, from 1989 to 2005, when Doctor Who wasn’t in production.

In Novel Experiences we find out that this time was in fact one of the most creative and innovative periods in Doctor Who’s history …

Filmed around the WHOOVERS event held at QUAD in Derby on the 13th May 2023.

The BBC Books Adventures

In 1999, BBC Books began publishing original Doctor Who novels (featuring the Eighth Doctor) plus original past Doctor adventures. Until 2005, BBC Books published over 100 titles! We talk to Editor Steve Col plus a host of writers about this amazing time … which many feel bridged the gap to the new series of Doctor Who on television in 2005.
