Time: The Birth of the Daleks

After a thousand years of futile war against the Thals, Davros has perfected the physical form that will carry his race into eternity — the dreaded Dalek.

Without feeling, conscience or pity, the Dalek is programmed to EXTERMINATE.

At the command of the Time Lords, Doctor Who travels back through time in an effort to totally destroy this terrible menace of the future.

But even the Doctor cannot always win...

Cover blurb:
DALEKS

Doctor Who is given the chance of his lifetime, the incredible chance to eliminate his most deadly enemy, the Daleks. Sent to Skaro, the home of their creation, at a point in time just before their existence, Doctor Who's sole mission is to prevent the Daleks' birth — or at the very least, alter their genetic development.

But the Time Lords and Doctor Who has not anticipated the single-minded obsession of the brilliant scientist Davros — a man determined to give his invention, the Daleks, destructive powers and a ruthless intelligence, a man determined to destroy. And least of all did they expect the baby Daleks to turn on their inventor... on the entire city... and prematurely on Doctor Who.
