Happy 20th Anniversary New Adventures

Timewyrm: Genesys was first published on 20th June 1991.

Happy Anniversary New Adventures! For many of us they kept the flame of Doctor Who alive during the so called Wilderness Years. There was plenty of fun and creativity in that wilderness as Paul Cornell himself expounds on in his interview with us (See TTZ7 & 8).

For me I became a fan in 1988 and thus just as I got in to the show it was cancelled. The New Adventures kept me interested and I had the joy of exploring both the back catalogue of Doctors prior to mine as well as having new printed adventures for Seven. What more could I ask for?

We celebrated the New Adventures back in issue 8 of The Terrible Zodin with Tony Gallichan expounded on the background of the creativy explosion from the vantage point of his seat in the Fitzroy Tavern, Barnaby Edwards gives a heartfelt overview of the series and several contributors reviewed their favourite novel for us (see the list of contents below)

So why not celebrate 20 years of the New Adventures by perusing back issue TTZ8 (Click here)
