Wyndham publishers put out a total of 4 hardcover books in 1974 and 1975 using the Allan Wingate imprint. They increased that number to 10 in 1976. These hardcover releases mirror the Target paperback imprints exactly. The growing popularity of Dr. Who in 1976 is clearly evident. The demand for these titles in hardcover is shown by the high prices these are demanding even in ex-library condition. Join me and my guest, Tony Whitt (Target Book Club Podcast), as we do a deep dive into the hardcovers of 1976.
Radio Times is a British TV/Radio program guide that has been around for a very long time. Dr. Who is the most represented TV show to ever appear on the cover. Collectors have been looking for these early rare issues since most of them were discarded after one week of use. Today we talk about the Dr. Who Covers and notable issues of Radio Times. I also have collection protection and the most outrageous offer! Tune in!
Episode 38: The Doctor and the Enterprise Special Joint Episode with the Dr. Who Target Book Club Podcast.
How do you celebrate the landmark episode of a podcast you’ve been doing for years now that talks about Target books? Talk about something entirely different! This time, our three-person discussion panel of Tony Whitt, Alyson Fitch-Safreed, and Dalton Hughes is joined by friend of the podcast Larry VanMersbergen for a special bumper volume (hey, that’s a Target reference) for a joint episode with his own show, THE DOCTOR WHO COLLECTORS PODCAST. And what are we discussing? Only the first major crossover between our favorite show and another franchise (and no, I don’t mean the DARK SHADOWS/VAMPIRELLA comic, either): THE DOCTOR AND THE ENTERPRISE!
The not-at-all Target book we will be covering in this episode can be found in four parts (text only) starting at the first link below, or in PDF version at the second link:
Today, I talk about the Dr. Who Pinball machine and 3 classic video games! We have The Mines of Terror, Dalek Attack, and Destiny of the Doctors. My guest is video gaming expert Ken VanMersbergen (yes, he's my brother!) and he owns the Dr. Who Pinball with working Dalek topper. We also have an outrageous offer from 1975, plus we protect your video games with products from retroprotection.com! Our next episode will be a joint podcast with the Doctor Who Target Book Club Podcast where we will celebrate their 100th episode! We will be talking about the Late Jean Airey's story "The Doctor and the Enterprise." It will be more fun than an Andoran Yo-Yo contest.
Today, I talk about Dr. Who on very obscure video formats including betamax, laserdisc, and something called Video 2000! Very collectible items. I talk about protecting these items and and outrageous offer on a book by our good friend, John Peel! Also, I am announcing the first joint podcast episode featuring the Dr. Who Target Book Club Podcast! Keep collecting!
Today, I talk about the problems that can occur when using eBay. I share two bad experiences that hopefully everyone else can avoid. I find an outrageous offer that is close to 20K! We protect those VHS tapes with new plastic cases from Bags Unlimited. See our new merchandise page with products from our new sponsor, Forbidden Planet! Keep Collecting!
Today, we talk with the host and producer of the Target Book Club Podcast, Tony Whitt, about unusual Target Books. These are the books that were not novels, but marketing filler to capitalize on the successful sales run of Target novels. Some appealing to children, some to adults, and who knows about the others. Listen why most of these are not as collectible and you can still get some of them new! Links to buy the selected titles from Doctorwhostore.com is below. Also the most outrageous offer and collection protection!
See our website for links to buy some of these books new from Doctorwhostore.com!
Today, we talk with a distinguished group of Dr. Who Magazine collectors about collecting this well-known magazine. Since 1979 this magazine has been a staple for Dr. Who news. Freebies were also included like transfers, stickers, posters, Target books, CD's, and vinyl records. As of this month we are on issue 560. I also talk about protecting those magazines and the most outrageous offer.
In this episode, I talk about the Denys Fisher toys of the 70's! I also talk about protecting those action figures. My annual suggestions for great Christmas gifts for the whovian is here along with the most outrageous offer. Keep Collecting!
