...OTTOMH , only the Douglas Adams (including one co-written by him , pseudonymously) Who stories , of BBC broadcast episodes , haven't been Target-ed , hah , hah !!!!!!!!!
I think the Who adaptations tend to be generically referred to as " Targets " , after the British company that issued most?? of them originally in the 70s/80s , and , from when I bought DWM , it appears that many of them are still more common than the later reissues on Virgin , though those are what I bought in the 90s , as dealers in DWM still offer a fair amount of Target printings seemingly relatively cheaply , IIRC .
Technically speaking , I guess the Target Whos were never , officially , issued in America , as I suppose the pre-globalization concept of " different companies on either side of the puddle " still applied then...About the time I was becoming a Who fan , the Who paperbacks were still from the Lyle Stuart company in America , though it's possible that by then they just put a LS sticker upon a Target pressing??
You are correct. I actually have the full set of novelizations although I am missing 2 stories from the sixth Doctor's unmade season. Power of the Daleks and I believe Evil of the Daleks came out around about 2000. I also managed to pick up the Fox TV movie novelization. I don't recall & won't be able to check until the weekend if I have one for Shada or even if there ever WAS a novelization for Shada. As far as the American novelizations, I don't think there were that many releases but they were memorable for the preface by Harlan Ellison...." Correct " on the flimsy hardcovers ?The first-generation American series w/the Ellison issues were before my time ( And were packaged a little more like " real " series paperback novels , anyway , with less of a " TV spinoff/series " look to them . ) , though I maybe got one , so I avoided mentioning them .I do believe Lyle Stuart put own Yank editions for a while .
,,,Shada did have a VHS issued , I had it...That played around with the " Is it an official story?? " question by having it introduced by Tom Baker...as himself , not the Doctor !!!!!!!!!
I have read that , in old-school Doctor Who fandom , a version of what was filmed for Shada was shown at some conventions , minus the Baker material filmed for that video . I'm told it would have words on screen againsta color backdrop , telling you what would have been seen there if comething had been filmed !
