Cover blurb:
The TARDIS lands in a London of future times — a city of fear, devastation and holocaust... a city now ruled by DALEKS.

The Doctor and his companions meet a team of underground resistance workers, among the few survivors, but after an unsuccessful attack on the Dalek spaceship, they are all forced to flee the capital.

A perilous journey through England finally brings them to the secret centre of Dalek operations... and the mysterious reason for the Dalek invasion of Earth!

Cover blurb:
The Daleks are back!

The TARDIS materializes in London — but Ian and Barbara have not returned home. The streets are deserted; buildings are crumbling.

But the city is not as empty as it seems. Robotized humans stalk the decaying streets, searching for the few beleaguered freedom fighters; and from their flying saucer in Trafalgar Square the Daleks plan the subjugation of the peoples of the world and the transformation of the planet into a giant spaceship.
