Cover blurb:
Genesis of the Daleks:
Daleks...! Wherever I have travelled in time and space I have met no deadlier adversary. Their single-minded destructive instinct has terrorized more people on more planets than I have time to mention. As the Tardis was impelled back towards the 20th century, little did I know that I was about to embark on my most dangerous mission... to find the Daleks and avert their creation for ever! — Dr. Who.

Slipback:
Odd events are taking place as the Tardis materializes on board a space-craft: a mysterious killer stalks the ship's ducting; two dubious policemen are investigating the theft of art treasures; and the computer has taken on its own distinctive personality. Soon the doctor stumbles on a shocking secret, a secret upon which depends the fate of the entire universe...

Note:  Two sleeve variations exist for this release: the first one as pictured, and a second version without the gold band behind "BBC Audio Collection" and with the back cover blurb missing the first paragraph — but otherwise having identical content, ISBN & price. Amazon also lists a separate US release under the ISBN "9990412898" which could either be (A) a book club exclusive release or (B) a "phantom" database entry rather than a real item. (If anyone knows for sure, please get in touch)

DR. WHO

Here are two stories to celebrate DR WHO'S 25th Anniversary. In Genesis of the Daleks the Doctor (Tom Baker) is sent by the Time Lords to the desolate planet, Skaro, to avert the creation of the Daleks, who threaten to dominate the entire Universe!

In Slipback the Doctor stumbles upon a shocking secret — one upon which depends the fate of the Universe. This is the only DR. WHO story specially written for radio with Colin Baker as the Doctor. Running time: 2 hours.
