Sooooooo, I got my daughter addicted to BBC's Sherlock - you know the one starring Khan Noonien Singh and Arthur Dent that only gets 3 episodes every 2 years or so. In an act of revenge, she got me addicted to the revived Doctor Who that began in 2005. I'm enjoying it so much, I began looking for the classic episodes. Netflix has a selection of classic Doctor Who, but I learned to my horror that many of the early serials don't exist anymore. I mean, who was the genius at the BBC that decided NOT to archive their best shows. However, all is not lost. Pretty much every classic Doctor Who serial was novelized and published by Target books. SWEET! This book is the first appearance of the Daleks, featuring the first Doctor and his first companions. I am now hunting and searching for key serials - the first appearance of the Cybermen, the Master, the Autons, and anything with Sarah Jane Smith and K9 in it. Thank you TARGET books for providing these "reruns" of classic TV sci-fi. In this age of DVD and Netflix no one is novelizing the current Doctor Who shows. True, there is money to be made in writing new adventures for the Doctor, and you can do things and go places in books that a TV show's budget prohibits. Still, I hope someone does the same for the current Doctor Who so these awesome adventures are available on paper after DVD's and Netflix eventually go the way of the VHS tape. After all, only books and Time Lords are eternal.

Very enjoyable adaptation of the classic TV series story, 'The Daleks' with William Hartnell as the Doctor. This is the original Target novelization, which were produced during the classic TV series. We read these because the VCR hadn't been invented yet, so there wasn't an option to re-watch an earlier story. If you wanted to experience it again, you bought one of these Target novelizations.

One thing I love about this particular novelization is that it's told entirely from the viewpoint of Ian. The novelization differs slightly from the TV story; in the series, Ian and Barbara are schoolteachers. Not so in the novelization, where they are passers-by who happen upon the Doctor and Susan in the fog. Once on Skaro, the story pretty much matches the televised story. The book is made more compelling by having it told by Ian, so everything is shrouded in mystery. A great way to adapt the TV story to a book. An excellent read if you are a fan of the original series, or anyone who wants to learn more about the origins of the Doctor's greatest enemies.

I'm glad I bought this book, and it is different from the TV show, which is not a bad thing. I thought that An Unearthly Child was the first novelzation of the show, but it's not. Anyway this book does not disapoint at all. I hope that profits for these six reprints of the old Doctor Who stories are large eneough, so that more of these stories will be printed. There are of course Target books out there avaiable, but the ones that are new, quite often are out of my price range, while these are not. I'm sure that I'm not the only one who hopes that more of these old stories will be reprinted, and the sooner the better!

The 2nd Dr. Who BBC episode introduced the Daleks for the first time. The Doctor's most iconic and deadly adversaries. Thank you Terry Nation and BBC!

I'm a lifelong Whovian, first introduced with Tom Baker's era. So, I'm too young to have see the first 2 or 3 Doctors. I've caught a few on video, and having that as a background, I found this novelization of the show to be outstanding. I really felt like I was watching it.
A fantastic read. Since the Daleks is one of the missing Doctor Who episodes this book is the next best thing. It was so good that it took me not even 24 hours to read it :)
