The TARDIS lands in a London of future times - a city of fear, devastation and holocaust...a city now ruled by Daleks. The Doctor and his companions meet a team of underground resistance workers, among the few survivors, but after an unsuccessful attack on the Dalek spaceship, they are all forced to flee the capital. A perilous journey through England finally brings them to the secret centre of Dalek operations...and the mysterious reason for the Dalek invasion of Earth! William Russell, who played the Doctor's companion Ian in the original TV serial, reads Terrance Dicks' complete and unabridged novelisation, with specially composed music and sound and Dalek voices by Nicholas Briggs. 'This is a relentless look at a Britain ground into the dirt by an oppressive conqueror, with obvious parallels to what would have happened if we had lost the Second World War, including black marketers, fifth columnists and of course the Nazi-like Daleks overseeing all. An all-time classic Who story, well worth a fresh listen' - "Cambs Times". 'BBC Audiobooks has chosen well with its books and has taken the right approach with its readers...they benefit from new music and sound effects' - "Doctor Who Magazine". '...completely marvellous...the best version of the story there is...this audiobook is as impressive a slice of Doctor Who as you'll find anywhere' - "Doctor Who Magazine".
