Additional Notes

  • The Doctor Who Storybook 2008 followed the same successful format as last year.
  • So as not to make the Storybook any less `official`than the BBC's offering, the Storybook was allowed to use the BBC logo on the cover and a box stating "Published with permission of the BBC" was found on the back.
  • The introduction, by way of 'A letter from the Doctor' is a direct lift from the first and very early issues of Doctor Who Weekly (as Doctor Who Magazine was formerly known as), even down to the Doctor's signature at the end. This time around the letter was, as forwarded to the publisher by Russell T Davies.
  • The Storybook was issued with a dustcover that inside the front flap had a short piece updating "The Changing Face of Doctor Who", and in the back flap a short piece on each of the featured writers accompanied by a small photo.
