Description:  Novelisation of the 1966 Doctor Who TV story of the same name — Patrick Troughton’s debut in the role of the Second Doctor. Also available as an audio reading.

Cover blurb:
The stranger drew himself up to his full height. ‘I am the Doctor,’ he announced.

Disoriented after his regeneration, the Doctor takes the TARDIS to the Earth Colony Vulcan. Ben and Polly are disturbed — the Doctor isn’t the man he used to be.

The Doctor too is worried. The colonists have found the remains of two Daleks — which they plan to revive.

Once revived, the Daleks claim that they are content to serve humanity. Can it really be true? Or do they have their own, more sinister plans?

This is a brand-new novelization of a classic Dalek story, which is also the first story to feature Patrick Troughton as the Doctor. It has been unavailable since its broadcast in 1966.
