Further Doctor Who serials in the same year were The Robots of Death (29 January-19 February 1977) and Image of the Fendahl (29 October-19 November 1977). Boucher subsequently worked on Blake's 7 (1978-1981) as script editor and also wrote nine episodes. He devised and wrote for Star Cops (1987), which he much later novelized as Star Cops (2013).

Further genre publications comprise four Doctor Who Ties in the Doctor Who BBC Past Doctors sequence, beginning with Last Man Running (1999) [see Checklist below]. [DRL]
