Doctor Who: Rose (Illustrated Edition)



To celebrate the return of the show-runner Russell T Davies to Doctor Who, as well as the 60th anniversary of the show, a special illustrated edition of Rose - the story that relaunched Doctor Who for the 21st century, novelised by Russell from his original script.

'Nice to meet you, Rose. Run for your life!'

In a lair somewhere beneath central London, a malevolent alien intelligence is plotting the end of humanity. Shop window dummies that can move - and kill - are taking up key positions, ready to strike.

Rose Tyler, an ordinary Londoner, is working her shift in a department store, unaware that this is the most important day of her life. She's about to meet the only man who understands the true nature of the threat facing Earth, a stranger who will open her eyes to all the wonder and terror of the universe - a traveller in time and space known as the Doctor.

Rose is the story that brought Doctor Who back for the 21st century - and Russell T Davies's novelisation, based on his script, set the standard for new-era Target novelisations. Now, with illustrations by acclaimed artist Robert Hack - this is Rose as you've never seen it before...
