DOCTOR WHO AND THE DINOSAUR INVASION
Malcolm Hulke
The Doctor and Sarah arrive back in the TARDIS to find London completely deserted — except for prehistoric dinosaurs, which keep suddenly appearing. Has the return of these creatures to Earth been planned and, if so, who can be behind it all?

The inside cover flaps read as follows:

The world is held in the grip of a Second Ice Age, and faces total destruction from the rapidly advancing glaciers.

DOCTOR WHO, with Victoria and Jamie, lands at a top scientific base in England, where they have just unearthed an ancient ICE WARRIOR. Aliens from Mars, preserved in the ice for centuries and now revitalised, the Ice Warriors feel ready to take over... Can the Doctor overcome these warlike Martians and halt the relentless approach of the ice glaciers...?

DOCTOR WHO — awarded The Writer's Guild Award for the best British children's orginal drama script.

Brian Hayles was born in Portsmouth in 1931. He trained as a sculptor and taught art for some years before becoming a full-time writer for television and radio.

Cover blurb:
Varga struck the fractured ice with his great fist. He faced his comrades boldly and barked a command at their lifeless forms: 'Awake from the dead!'

The world is in the grip of a second Ice Age. Despite a coordinated global effort, the glaciers still advance. But they are not the only threat to the planet.

Buried deep in the ice, scientists at Britannicus Base have discovered an ancient warrior. But this is no simple archaeological find. What they have found is the commander of a spaceship that crashed into the glacier thousands of years ago. Thawed from the ice, and knowing their home planet Mars is now a dead world, the Ice Warriors decide to make Earth their own...

Can the Doctor and his friends overcome the warlike Martians and halt the advance of the glaciers?

THIS NOVEL IS BASED ON A DOCTOR WHO STORY WHICH WAS ORIGINALLY BROADCAST FROM 11 NOVEMBER TO 16 DECEMBER 1967. THIS WAS THE FIRST DOCTOR WHO STORY TO FEATURE THE ICE WARRIORS.

Featuring the Second Doctor as played by Patrick Troughton, and his companions Jamie and Victoria.
