DOCTOR WHO — THE THREE DOCTORS
The inner dustjacket flaps read as follows:
Jo peered through the panel and saw — nothing. Yet someone had entered the cabin. She could hear hoarse breathing and stealthy padding footsteps. A beaker rose in the air of its own accord, then dropped to the floor... THE INVISIBLE ENEMY.
After pursuing the DALEKS through Space, DOCTOR WHO lands on the Planet of Spiridon, in the midst of a tropical jungle... and finds more than Daleks. Vicious plants spit deadly poison, invisible Spiridons attacking from all sides and, in hiding, a vast army waits... for the moment to mobilise and CONQUER.
Terrance Dicks was born in 1935 and educated at East Ham Grammar School and Downing College, Cambridge.
After a spell in advertising the author became a full-time scriptwriter, first for radio, then television where for five years he was Script Editor of the ‘Doctor Who’ series. He is now a free-lance author and writes many of the highly successful ‘Doctor Who’ books, and is currently launching a new adventure series for boys and girls about the Canadian Mounted Police Force.
Terrance Dicks lives in Hampstead, London, is married and has three children. He is an obsessive reader, likes ‘messing about in boats’ and is cultivating an interest in mysticism and meditation.
After pursuing the Daleks through Space, Doctor Who lands on the Planet of Spiridon, in the midst of a tropical jungle... and finds more than Daleks. Vicious plants spitting deadly poison, invisible Spiridons attacking from all sides and, in hiding, a vast army waits... for the moment to mobilise and conquer.
Note: Same ISBN as the original paperback edition; the only change is to the cover design, with a green logo instead of red. Though unusually, subsequent reprints (of which there were several between 1980 and 1987) went back to using the original red logo.

Note: Surprisingly, this uses a different translation than the 1989 German edition (below). In total, 6 TV novelisations were translated into German — the others were An Unearthly Child, The Daleks, The Dalek Invasion of Earth, Death to the Daleks and Destiny of the Daleks.
Note: This uses a different translation than the 1980 German edition (above).
Der phantastische Dr. WHO mit seinem unmöglichen Raum-schiff auf Abenteuersuche im Weltall!
Auf seiner Verfolgungsjagd nach den Daleks landet der Doktor zusammen mit seiner Freundin Jo auf dem Planeten Spiridon, inmitten eines tropischen Dschungels. Doch nicht nur Daleks erwarten ihn auf dem Planeten, sondern auch hinterhältige, spuckende Giftpflanzen, unsichtbare Ureinwohner, eine kleine Thalexpedition — und eine riesige Armee tiefgefrorener Daleks, die jeden Moment aus ihrem Kälteschlaf erwachen kann, um die Galaxie zu erobern...
Note: Same ISBN as previous UK paperback edition.
Alone with the injured and unconscious Doctor, Jo Grant ventures on to the planet Spiridon to find help.
But in the lush undergrowth of Spiridon there lurks disease, poisonous plants, invisible enemies and, most sinister of all, an army of Daleks, waiting in secret for the signal to mobilize — and conquer.
This is a novelization by Terrance Dicks of an original script by Terry Nation, creator of the Daleks as well as of such classic series as Blake’s 7 and Survivors.
