Note: Sold-out unofficial novelisation of the 1966 Daleks Invasion Earth 2150 A.D. movie starring Peter Cushing, one of four such novelisations published in aid of Doctor Who author Tommy Donbavand who at the time was battling cancer. The book was written under the pseudonym “Alan Smithee” — apparently a well-known Who writer who wished to remain anonymous.
In a nice touch, the back cover blurb (and the foreword inside the book) is written as if there actually was a third Peter Cushing movie — if only!
Dr Who arrives in the future to find that the Earth is now gripped by a new ice age. As the ice spreads south it brings with it a threat from the distant past... and from a distant world...
The Ice Warriors have laid claim to the Earth.
Written by Brian Hayles and David Whitaker, and based on Brian Hayles’ first Ice Warrior serial for the BBC’s Doctor Who series, Dr Who and the Ice Men from Mars was Peter Cushing’s third appearance on screen as Dr. Who. An Aaru/Hammer co-production.
