Cover blurb:
Earth, 1984: the TARDIS becomes trapped in a Time Corridor and is drawn off course, emerging in London's deserted docklands. Deep space, the far future: a prison ship comes under attack from unknown forces. Two seemingly unconnected events — but both linked by one terrible purpose. The Daleks are back, and once again they are in search of their evil creator, Davros...

Cover blurb:
Trapped in a time corridor, the TARDIS veers off course, emerging in London's deserted docklands. In the far future, a prison ship in deep space comes under attack. These two remote events are linked by one terrible purpose.

Davros, the ruthless creator of the Daleks, has been liberated after 90 years of imprisonment to assist in the resurretion of his Dalek army. He's their best hope for finding the antidote to the deadly anti-Dalek virus devised by their longtime robotic rivals, the Movellans.

Davros sets about his appointed task with a secret agenda of his own — one that may force the Doctor to descend to Davros' level of evil.

Cover blurb:
The TARDIS is dragged down a time corridor, forcing the Doctor, Tegan and Turlough to materialize in a disused part of London in 1984.

The corridor links Earth with a battle cruiser in the future that contains the Doctor's oldest enemy — the Daleks. Having lost the war with the Movellans, only one person can now help the evil race. With shocking consequences for the Doctor, it is time for the Daleks to resurrect their creator Davros.
