Telos DOCTOR WHO novellas to end
Independent publisher has license revoked by the BBC

Telos Publishing Limited, responsible for the award winning TIME AND RELATIVE
by Kim Newman and other DOCTOR WHO
novellas, has lost their license to publish original fiction based on the franchise.
On their website, David J. Howe said, "We are shocked and of course deeply saddened by BBC Worldwide's decision, which we know will greatly disappoint the thousands of regular readers of the DOCTOR WHO
novellas. However, having discussed this with BBC Worldwide, we are resigned to the fact that there is nothing we can do to persuade them to change their minds."
Telos had already published four novellas, with Andrew Cartmel's FOREIGN DEVILS
due out next month. They had recently announced an increase in DOCTOR WHO
output. Telos will continue to publish novellas until March 2004 when their current license expires. They also publish their own line of horror and dark fantasy novels.
