Cover blurb:
An exciting, action-packed thriller in which The Doctor (Jon Pertwee) comes face-to-face with his oldest and deadliest enemy...

World peace hangs in the balance. Sir Reginald Styles, a high-ranking diplomat is the only person that stands between mankind and a third and final World War. But a mysterious and savage guerilla force from the 22nd Century believe Styles is the agent that shaped their terrifying future and therefore must die...

The Doctor and Jo find themselves flung into the guerillas' world; a brutal dictatorship policed by the merciless and ape-like Ogrons. The Daleks have invaded Earth, enslaved the population and face certain triumph unless The Doctor betrays all he believes in and condones the cold-blooded murder of Styles in an attempt to change the course of history... irrevocably.

Cover blurb:
Earth ruled by Daleks!

Perhaps it was inevitable. The ultimate war came to pass. And with it went all vestiges of civilization as we once knew it. It was exactly the opportunity the evil robot Daleks had been waiting for to seize control of Earth!

But wait! If a band of rebels sent from the future can assassinate the "murderous fanatic" Sir Reginald Styles, history will be changed and the Daleks foiled!

Only one thing stands in the way of their mission to rewrite history and save the world — Doctor Who!

The Day of the Daleks is one of the strangest, and most intellectually challenging chapters in the Doctor's 25 year history. Now, follow every bizarre twist and exciting turn, all the way to the explosive conclusion!
