Cover blurb:
The universe is at war.
Action requires courage.

Inside cover flaps read as follows:

'I'm not here as your prisoner, Davros, but your executioner.'

The TARDIS is ensnared in a time corridor, catapulting it into derelict docklands on 20th century Earth. The Doctor and his companions, Tegan and Turlough, stumble on a warehouse harbouring fugitives from the future at the far end of the corridor — and are soon under attack from a Dalek assault force.

The Doctor's oldest enemies have set in motion an intricate and sinister plot to resurrect their race from the ashes of an interstellar war. For the Daleks' plans to succeed, they must set free their creator, Davros, from a galactic prison — and force the Doctor to help them achieve total control over time and space. But the embittered Davros has ideas of his own...

35 years after its first TV transmission, Resurrection of the Daleks is novelised at last, by the author of the original script, Eric Saward.

ERIC SAWARD has written for both radio and television, script edited Doctor Who for five years and also written four original stories for the show. During this time he also novelised four scripts and wrote the first ever Doctor Who radio serial. Recently he has completed a graphic novel based around the adventures of Lytton.
