Note:  Sold-out unofficial novelisation of the 1966 Daleks Invasion Earth 2150 A.D. movie starring Peter Cushing, one of four such novelisations published in aid of Doctor Who author Tommy Donbavand who at the time was battling cancer. The book was written under the pseudonym "Alan Smithee" — apparently a well-known Who writer who wished to remain anonymous.
In a nice touch, the back cover blurb (and the foreword inside the book) is written as if there actually was a fourth Peter Cushing movie — if only!

Cover blurb:
Dr Who arrives on the Moon in the 21st Century to find that a strange disease is wiping out the crew of a weather control moonbase. Soon, a new planet in the solar system is causing havoc, and most deadly of all, the metallic, emotionless inhabitants of that world have arrived...

The Cybermen's invasion of Earth has begun.


Written by Kit Pedler, Gerry Davis and David Whitaker, and based on three serials for the BBC's Doctor Who series, The Tenth Planet Invades the Moonbase was Peter Cushing's fourth appearance on screen as Dr. Who. An Aaru/Hammer co-production.
