Three and a half years ago, myself and a small consortium of Doctor Who role-playing nuts launched the First Doctor Expanded Universe Sourcebook as a companion to the first of Cubicle 7's 50th Anniversary books. We always planned an update down the line because they keep coming out with new extracanonical adventures in print and audio, and so...
In this 50-page addendum to the original book, you'll find material from all the 1st Doctor audios released by Big Finish in the past two and a half years, and a few from short stories and other sources. In fact, there are a couple of stories we either didn't have access to or plum forgot first time around, including what is arguably the first original Doctor Who "novel" published in the same format as the Doctor Who Annuals, Doctor Who and the Invasion from Space, and The Destroyers, the Sara Kingdom/Daleks audio adventure, omitted because we didn't really know what to do with abortive spin-offs at the time. Also included are a complete revised timeline for Hartnell's Doctor, adventure seeds aplenty, and even some characters from the shows that were omitted in C7's book. Allies, villains, locations, a gadget, and all of it pretty much written by my partner in all this, Peter "MisterHarry" Gilham, with only the most modest of contributions from me (layouts, mostly).
To him, my dearest thanks. To you, this gift in time for Holiday reading. Up next for us, the Fifth Doctor Sourcebook, a beast of a volume that will hopefully be out late winter or early spring. Stay tuned for some extracanonical Peter Davison action, coming soon.

I certainly wasn't expecting this. I have a lot to read but I look forward to going through this book. I hope to contribute to expanded universe books at some point but since most of my area of expertise in that area is the 8th Doctor and Lucie Miller stuff I might be waiting a while. Nevertheless on behalf of the community, thank you
