And so ends the "Missing Adventures" series. These books were produced by Virgin under a license from the BBC. The BBC elected not to renew the license, choosing instead to start publishing it's own line of new Doctor Who fiction beginning in June, 1997. Thank-you, Virgin, for keeping Doctor Who alive in print, and for producing such a wonderful series of books.
