DWM prose stories

From Tardis Wiki, the free Doctor Who reference

Prose stories first appeared in the inside covers of the first issue of Doctor Who Magazine, then known as Doctor Who Weekly, starting the Fourth Doctor. They continued in 1989-1980, 1986-1995, and then sporadically until the final story in 2005. A continuation of the first story, now staring the Twelfth Doctor, would appear to celebrate the magazine's 500th issue in 2016.
