In 1988, Paul Scoones and Jon Preddle decided to 'fill the gaps' in the Target range of novelisations by writing and publishing adaptations of the un-novelised television stories. Early plans to include the two Troughton Dalek stories in this schedule were abandoned when it became clear that Virgin Books would be publishing these. The first book in the series was a novelisation of Shada by Paul Scoones from Jon Preddle's transcript off a video recording. The pair were credited as co-authors on the first edition, published in March 1989. Later, the full rehearsal scripts for Shada were obtained, from which an entirely new novelisation was written by Paul Scoones and published in October 1991. The second book was The Pirate Planet by David Bishop (later the author of Who Killed Kennedy for Virgin Books). David's book was first published in September 1990 and reprinted in a retyped format in January 1991. July 1992 saw the publication of Revelation of the Daleks by Jon Preddle and City of Death by David Lawrence was published in November of the same year. Over seven years later, a fifth book, Resurrection of the Daleks, by Paul Scoones, was published in January 2000, completing the last of the 'gaps' in the Target novelisations.
