  • Labour action forces production to be halted on the six-episode serial, DW: Shada. Ultimately, it is decided to abandon the serial, which signaled a premature end for the 1979-80 season with DW: The Horns of Nimon.
  • REF: Terry Nation's Dalek Special First Published. This Target Books trade paperback release, edited by Terrance Dicks, includes the novella Daleks: The Secret Invasion, written by Terry Nation, which is the first piece of original Doctor Who-related fiction to be published by Target, as well as Nation's only fiction writing for the company. As the book includes a synopsis of DW: Destiny of the Daleks it can be surmised it was probably published after that serial was broadcast.
