The ninth to twelfth books in the Cushing Dr Who series of charity releases.
Given that there had been shows of interest in a Doctor Who film from major movers in the American film industry, it was surprising that the BBC chose to go back to Milton Subotsky.
Amicus has recently folded and Subotsky had begun working in Canada. He had started a new company, Sword and Sorcery Productions, to tie in to what he was sure would be the next big fad. Both Conan and John Norman’s Gor books had been optioned for films and Subotsky wanted to be in on that coming fad. However, to be in on that, he had to raise his profile again and raise some finance. Though he had no love for sequels or series, Subotsky saw the sense in returning to a safe property to get him on track, and he set about pursuing the rights for Doctor Who again.”
