Launched: The Fifth Doctor Expanded Universe Sourcebook

It's here! The fifth volume to act as companion to the 50th Anniversary Doctor Who sourcebooks for Cubicle 7's Doctor Who RPG - they covered the Doctor Who canon, we covered the extracanonical adventures from the novels, audios, comics, and more!
You can download (or just read) it HERE in high (printable) or low (computer screen) resolution.

Thanks to Peter Davison starring in a long range of Big Finish audio stories, this sucker is more than 100 pages more than the previous volume (332 to the Fourth Doctor's 213), with at least one entry from each Fifth Doctor novel and audio, plus material from short stories, comics, and even the televised show itself (characters we felt had been neglected in the official book). You'll find people, monsters, places, dates, gear, the works, as well as a timeline that puts it all together, and adventure seeds, both original and based on the source material, for the prospective GameMaster. While I did the layouts, coordination, and editing, the lion's share of contributions came, as ever, from Peter "misterharry" Gilham, without whom this project would be impossible. Best proofreader in the land as well! I'm also grateful to other contributors, namely Bill Bacon, Mark Turner, and visual artist Brendon Wright.

And of course, my personal thanks to everyone who's kept up with the project for the past four years. If the Sixth Doctor is your jam, you can help on the next one. Check out the list of things we're looking for in The Extracanonical Colin Baker; maybe you can help us out with words or pictures. If you don't know the game very well, we've got guys who can stat it all up for you. Get in touch, we'd love to have more collaborators. And that could be you! I'd love to have it done by start of summer 2018. And a lot closer in time, look for the Second Doctor Update 2017. We like to throw an addendum your way every New Year's.

And now, a few pages for readers not interested enough to click the links. starting with the massive table of contents (click to enlarge), followed by a few select entries:

Well done!
You must have been working like nuts to get this finished.
There were SO MANY hard pics to find.

Which is why I'm crediting for "making" so many of them.

Soooo grateful for real artists like you who contribute a few pieces to the effort.

"Few" is the operational word.
Work pepped up at just the "wrong" moment, not that income is ever inconvenient...

Thanks for your labors guys (and the other contributors). :) I'd personally wondered if we were going to see No.5 given the extended gap between releases, It's only opening up the vast document that I'd remembered the (now) decades of BF audio releases to account for with the latter Doctor. :D

Doc6 is probably going to be just as big, so another big wait (but a 2nd Doctor addendum between then and now).
