Cover blurb:
Doctor Who on trial for murder!

The President of the Time Lords is dead. Only Doctor Who predicted the assassination. Only Doctor Who was seen firing the rifle. And at his trial, with quite probably three hours to live, who else but Doctor Who would announce that he now wants to run for President!

The Deadly Assassin is a Masterpiece of special effects and pure spectacle. It's the ultimate showdown between Doctor Who and his arch enemy, The Master — now more deadly than ever in his twelfth, and final, regeneration!

And, yes! This is the program with the now-legendary hallucinatory battle to the death between The Master's relentless, mysterious champion and the wildly wily Doctor!
