Note:  Sold-out unofficial novelisation of The Tenth Planet, The Invasion and The Moonbase in aid of Doctor Who author Tommy Donbavand who is battling cancer. The book was written under the pseudonyn "Alan Smithee" — apparently a well-known Who writer who wishes to remain anonymous. Three other novelisations were published simultaneously: Dr Who and the Daleks, Daleks Invasion Earth 2150 AD, and Dr Who and The Ice Men From Mars.
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.
