|Obverse Books unofficial novelisations|
The first was a 2016 novelisation of The Christmas Invasion in the style of a 1970s Target book. Published in aid of the Cystic Foundation Trust, the book appeared as a limited print run of just 40 copies, which sold out nearly instantly when promoted by Obverse on Facebook. It was followed by two similar novelisations for The Runaway Bride and Voyage of the Damned (titled “The Christmas Bride” and “The Christmas Voyage” respectively) — however, both of those were produced as private print runs and not offered for public sale, hence are not listed on this site.
Then, in 2019 Obverse simultaneously released a further set of 4 unofficial novelisations, all featuring “Dr. Who” as played by Peter Cushing, in aid of the late Doctor Who author Tommy Donbavand, who at the time was battling cancer. The books were all written under the pseudonym “Alan Smithee” — apparently a well-known Who writer who wished to remain anonymous. The first two of these books novelised the 1960s movies Dr. Who and the Daleks and Daleks: Invasion Earth 2150 A.D, while the other two were written as if two more Cushing movies had been made, which were loosely based on classic Who TV stories such as The Ice Warriors and The Tenth Planet.
Further “alternate universe” novelisations followed from 2020 onwards, all for charity and written under varying pseudonyms such as “David Agnew” and “Robin Bland”. Some of these later books were further novelisations of other non-existent movies starring Peter Cushing (though these “fake” movies were all based on “real” TV episodes like The Web of Fear). Meanwhile, other books switched to a new conceit, imagining that a Dr. Who radio series was produced in the late 1960s as a co-production between the BBC and Hammer Films, with the books being novelisations of those radio stories.
