Re: 50th Anniversary Book Releases

I think Aaronovitch was probably chosen less as an original series legend and more for the success of his current "Rivers of London" novel series, plus of course the already-mentioned desire to get a Dalek book in there. And Dicks, like Cole, Richards, Baxendale, and Rayner, was more likely picked as a recognizable name for established readers of new series fiction, though I doubt the Uncle Terrance effect hurt.
