Telos DOCTOR WHO novellas to end

Independent publisher has license revoked by the BBC

By Richard Salter     October 23, 2002

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.
