The Doctor Who Reading List Part 2
(This list wouldn't have been possible without the thing of wonder that is Tat Wood and Lawrence Miles' About Time: The Unauthorised Guide To Doctor Who and Paul Cornell, Martin Day and Keith Topping's Doctor Who: The Discontinuity Guide)
It does have to be said that the range of influences for the Troughton stories contracts when compared to the Hartnell period, Innes Lloyd changing the stories' settings to more familiar science fiction and fantasy settings.
