Who Killed Kennedy was a DWU novel published by Virgin Books. It was written by David Bishop. It is often considered by fans to be a part of the Virgin Missing Adventures series, although it was released as a standalone novel without ties to any of Virgin's ranges. Who Killed Kennedy was the first true Doctor-lite novel. It revolved around how journalist James Stevens' investigations into the Kennedy assassination led him into the world of the Doctor. This allowed the author to explore a number of televised stories from the perspective of a neutral observer, much as the character of Elton Pope would later be used in the television story Love & Monsters.
The book is further notable perhaps even infamous for a subplot involving the attempted rape, near-wedding and murder of former companion Dodo Chaplet. However, this aspect of the story has often been conflated with aspects of The Man in the Velvet Mask. As a result, many fans wrongly believe that Kennedy tells the story of Dodo dying from syphilis something that never happens in either book.
Stylistically, author David Bishop unusually attempts to present the story as genuine journalism. In pursuit of realism, he even allows Stevens front cover credit for writing the book.
