Product Description

Book Description

The First Doctor encounters a new and terrifying threat - the Cybermen, in a new edition of a Doctor Who classic

Product Description

The TARDIS brings the Doctor and his friends to a space tracking base in the Antarctic - and straight into trouble. A space mission is going badly wrong, and a new planet has appeared in the sky.



Mondas, ancient fabled twin planet of Earth has returned. Soon its inhabitants arrive. But while they used to be just like the humans of Earth, now they are very different. Devoid of emotions, their bodies replaced with plastic and steel, the Cybermen are here.



Humanity needs all the help it can get, but the one man who seems to know what's going on is terminally ill. As the Cybermen take over, the Doctor is dying...



This novel is based on the final story to feature the First Doctor, which was originally broadcast from 8 to 29 October 1966. This was the first Doctor Who story to feature the Cybermen.



Featuring the First Doctor in his very last adventure as played by William Hartnell, and his companions Ben and Polly

5.0 out of 5 stars Resistance is useless 10 May 2012
By Michael Finn TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
It's the year 2000 and a South Polar military base is tracking a manned capsule probing Earth's outer atmosphere. The TARDIS crew of an ailing Doctor, accompanied by Ben and Polly arrive at the base just as the capsule begins malfunctioning, seemingly affected by a strange force.
By the time this one came out I'd already witnessed my first Time Lord regeneration when Jon Pertwee bowed out, so the big surprise at the end of the Tenth Planet shouldn't have been much of a shock. What it did do to my understanding of the show, that I'd drifted into loving through Jon Pertwee's tenure, was to make me aware that regeneration had occurred before and that sooner or later it was going to happen again. The story also introduces the Cybermen in their original, almost unrecognisable, though very creepy, cloth masked version. I was a month old when The Tenth Planet was first broadcast and by the time this book got into my hands the BBC had already junked much of their pre-70s episodes including that crucial regeneration episode.
Gerry Davis' novelisation sticks close to the original script. There's a few minor changes like the year being 2000 instead of the original 1986, a Roger Moore James Bond cameo (sort of), some teasing lines from the newly regenerated Doctor at the conclusion and most noticeably the reinstatement of the Doctor's lines from episode three which were delivered in the televised version by Michael Craze (Ben) , somewhat confusedly, when William Hartnell missed filming due to ill health. Even though the Doctor doesn't have much of presence in this story it's still a very enjoyable affair and one of the first times the base-under-siege scenario that would soon become familiar was used.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm the new Doctor. 17 Jun 2012
By Nick
Format:Mass Market Paperback
of course, seeing the title The Tenth Planet flash up at me, i had to get it. The only doctor regeneration i havnt seen and i can imagine it in my minds eye. Not the massive explosion of golden artron energy we get today (although that is very impressive) but the Doctor skulking off to go quietly into his next body. No-one witnesses the change but we all no its happened. This book has certainly fullfilled a 21 year old guys fantasy of witnessing something he thought long lost. Brilliant book for Doctor Who fans

4.0 out of 5 stars Primarily for fans, this one 18 May 2014
By zippy72
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a competent adaptation of the scripts for the first Cyberman story, "The Tenth Planet". While episode 4 of the original TV version may be the most sought-after of all time, you'll probably find reading the book just as enjoyable as if you were watching the real thing.

As usual, the language is simple - this is written for children, after all - and it's a quick read. But it's really enjoyable, and fills a good few hours.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thanks again Amazon 27 Mar 2014
By Mike
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was so pleased to find these books, more riveting Who novels. I have the DVDs and the audio novels (or soundtracks) of many Who stories already. Most come at a good price, post free AND, more recently and most impressive, delivered by Amazon's own delivery service. Excellent, with regular status messages, right down to 'this item has been posted through your letter-box! How good is that!?

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent first ever cyberman adventure 1 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I wasn't born when the original black-and-white episodes came out, and to be honest, having grown up with modern Hi-Def /Blu-Ray TV and films, I probably wouldn't appreciate those B&W films now. But the story from those brilliant Target novellisations is as exciting as the best of modern Dr. Who.
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, make ALL of those Target novels available as ebooks. Not that many would buy these old books if they are full-priced, but A LOT would buy them if they are very competively priced at £2.61 like now.

The modern generation of DR. Who fans have never had a chance to enjoy all those previous decades of DR. Who, so PLEASE give us a chance to take part and experience them too. Just don't try to rip us off by charging full-price.
