The seventeenth edition under the Target line featured new artwork as well as changing the trade dress to match the other books published at the time. This included changing to the logo associated with the Sylvester McCoy serials and adding the number "16" to the spine of the book. The title was further shortened to Doctor Who - The Daleks.
