City of Death is one of the most watched stories in the programme's history and a firm fan favourite. The story was originally written by producer Graham Williams and script editor Douglas Adams, based on a story idea by David Fisher. Because of rights issues, a novelisation of the story was never produced during the original Target Books run.
In October last year, it was announced that Roberts would finally write a novelisation for the story - following the success of a novelisation of Shada - and would be due for release this year. There is currently no information on when Goss's version of City of Death will be available.
