Cover blurb:
The TARDIS takes the Doctor and Peri to the planet Necros, where the Doctor plans to visit his old friend Professor Arthur Stengos. But after an encounter with the Great Healer, Stengos is not quite the man the Doctor once knew.

The Great Healer works in the catacombs beneath Tranquil Repose, the galactically famous final resting place for the dead and the not-quite-yet-dead. In the upper chambers the busy workers prepare the deceased for their final burial, while deep below the Great Healer is using their bodies for a sinister project of his own. For the Great Healer is also known by another name — Davros, creator of the Daleks, who's using the bodies to build himself a brand new Dalek army.

The Doctor attempts to stop Davros while Stengos' daughter searches for her missing father and the local DJ uses rock'n'roll music as a defence against the Daleks. Many are searching for Davros, but the evil scientist has a plan that will eradicate all opposition and enable him to lead his Daleks on a new mission of universal conquest...

This stylish adventure with its uniquely dark humour was produced in the 1980's.
