It's been nearly 13 years since Doctor Who returned from cancellation, which means it's also been nearly 13 years since Christopher Eccleston made his shock exit as the Ninth Doctor. In the years since Eccleston has kept mostly quiet about why he left the show after just one season, but he's now revealed the full extent of what caused his departure.

Doctor Who fans who grew up in the classic era of the show are more than familiar with the nostalgic legacy of the Target (no relation to the retail store) novelizations - in an era before repeats and home releases, they were often your only chance to re-experience an episode. These days episode novelizations are no longer common, but the BBC is bringing them back for a retro hit.
