He also wrote Doctor Who serials, including The Crusade, The Power of the Daleks and The Evil of the Daleks, with Power being the debut of the Second Doctor.

Doctor Who and the Crusaders was the third and last of the original trilogy of Doctor Who novelisations published in the mid-1960s, years prior to the launch of the Target novelisation range. It was based on the 1965 television serial The Crusade. From unknown Space, the Tardis returns to Earth, but not to the world Ian and Barbara know.

Doctor Who is a British science fiction television programme produced by the BBC since 1963. Hundreds of novelisations of the series have been published by various publishers, the majority based on the original 1963–1989 run of the series. The first three Doctor Who serials to be novelised were the 1960s serials The Daleks, The Web Planet, and The Crusade (published as Doctor Who in an Exciting Adventure with the Daleks, Doctor Who and the Zarbi, and Doctor Who and the Crusaders).

Based on the BBC television serial by David Whitaker by arrangement with the British Broadcasting Corporation. Chapter One Death In The Forest. Chapter Two The Knight Of Jaffa. Chapter Three A New Scheherazade. Chapter Four The Wheel Of Fortune.

They are akin to pulp magazine illustrations, somewhere between concept art used in game design and those classic illustrations mentioned earlier.

The Crusade is the half-missing sixth serial of the second season in the British science fiction television series Doctor Who, which was first broadcast in four weekly parts from 27 March to 17 April 1965. The story is set near Jerusalem, in Palestine, during the Third Crusade. Only two of the four episodes are held in the BBC archives; two remain missing. It is the only serial in the second season to contain missing episodes.

From unknown Space, the Tardis returns to Earth, but not to the world Ian and Barbara know

From unknown Space, the Tardis returns to Earth, but not to the world Ian and Barbara know. The little blue telephone box has wheeled sharply in the cosmos and cut back through the pattern of history to the struggle between Richard the Lionheart and Saladin, Crusader v. Saracen.

y, fair treatment and respect. But there had been changes inside the ship. Susan had gone, left behind in an England all but destroyed in the twenty-first century when the Daleks had attempted the conquest of Earth, an invasion only just foiled by the Doctor.

The Doctor (William Hartnell) returns to his favourite planet, Earth, in 12th century Palestine and his companion Barbara is soon kidnapped by the Saracen leader. Meanwhile the Doctor and Vicki are taken to the court of Richard the Lionheart, who is leading a crusade against the Saracens.

Great adaption of a great serial!
Certainly one of my least favorite adventures of the Doctor. It's based entirely in a historical atmosphere with no other-worldly influence. Barbra is a predictable nuisance by getting kidnapped repeatedly. Ian is unrealistically heroic and lucky. The Doctor isn't even spoken of for most of the book. It's pretty boring compared to most Doctor Who adventures.
The first round of novelisations of Doctor Who happened back in 1965. "The Crusaders" is the third of these. (Novelisations did not recommence until 1973 under the Target banner.)
The Doctor, Ian, Barbara and Vicki arrive in twelfth century Palestine, and are soon split up: Barbara is captured by the Saracens, while the rest fall in with King Richard the Lionhearted. While Ian is knighted and dispatched with a message to Saladin and to rescue Barbara, the Doctor and Vicki are caught up in court intrigue. Given the way things go, one could argue which of them is in the most danger.
Strong characterisation by David Whitaker (author of both the original script and this book) makes this book a very good read (sadly, we only have half of the story still existing on video), and yet again demonstrates that the historical stories were often very good, exceeding the science fiction stories in some cases.
This book is illustrated by line drawings. I wish it wasn't. They aren't very good.
It's better than I remember!
