Product Description

Review

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, November 13, 2009

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, January 2010

Book Description

William Russell reads this exciting novelisation of a classic Doctor Who adventure, with Dalek voices by Nicholas Briggs.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By R. C. McGinlay VINE VOICE on 29 Nov. 2009
Format: Audio CD
Originally published in 1977, Terrance Dicks's novelisation of the 1964 serial Doctor Who - The Dalek Invasion Of Earth [1964] [DVD] [1963] was the first Target Book since the company's initial batch of three reprints in 1973 to return to the era of the First Doctor (William Hartnell).

Dicks, writing for Hartnell's Doctor for the first time (barring a few scenes in Doctor Who - The Three Doctors [1972] [DVD] [1963], which he script-edited), perfectly captures the character's mixture of irritability and kindliness, strong will and frailty. Depicting the TARDIS crew members' thought processes, he also plays upon the antagonism between Ian and the Doctor, which had all but disappeared by this point in the television series. The Doctor gets a few additional lines of dialogue during chapters adapted from the fourth episode (in which Hartnell did not appear due to ill health). Susan frequently refers to the Time Lord as "Doctor" rather than "grandfather", playing down this familial aspect of the show's mythology. Dicks also removes the Doctor's assertion that the events of this story take place "a million years" before The Daleks (Doctor Who - The Beginning (An Unearthly Child [1963] / The Daleks [1963] / The Edge of Destruction [1964]) [DVD]), in light of continuity references made in Planet of the Daleks (Doctor Who - Dalek War [DVD] [1973]).

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By J. R. Collyns on 30 Nov. 2009
Format: Audio CD
Another good choice by the BBC, a great original story, very well realised on TV, but the novelisation brings more depth to the story and allows the imagination to cover for some of the 1960s BBC special effect's shortcomings. And William Russell reads this brilliantly - I love the fact that they've added little sound effects and touches such as when the characters are in a warehouse or metallic cell their voices have a slight echo. Nichols Briggs doing the daleks is also very good and gives it another dimension again.

With 4 more confirmed already for next year, the BBC is doing great work issuing these titles - keep 'em coming please.

Dalek Voices By: Nicholas Briggs

What's Up Doc?
The TARDIS lands in a London of future times - a city of fear, devastation & holocaust... a city now ruled by Daleks, The Doctor & 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... & the mysterious reason for the Dalek invasion of Earth!

Timelord Thoughts.
'Daleks Invasion Of Earth' is a 1960's season 2 Tv adventure that is a sequel to 'The Daleks' that also features the departure of the Doctor's granddaughter Susan.

Terrance Dicks once again is responsible for this Target adaptation & does a splendid job here who gives the Daleks & the Roboman especially a far darker & more sinister threat than the Tv episodes did thanks in part to the excellent Nicholas Briggs who's chilling sinister tones add genuine fear & menace to Skaros finest killers.

Dicks also tightens up the pace of the Tv story's 6 episodes & returns the antagonism between the Doctor & companion Ian Chesterton which had disappeared by this point in the television series & echoes back to there conflicting points of view of the situation of earlier adventures, while the Doctors final speech to Susan is poignant & emotional.

Format: Audio CD
Chris Achilleos' searingly brilliant cover montage is a real blast from the past for me; it epitomised all that I loved about Doctor Who as a teenager in the pre-DVD 1980s. The story inside is one of those that built on and massively improved the fairly ordinary TV serial it novelised; the sinister Robomen and remorseless Daleks spring from the pages in all their chilling glory - valiantly opposed by Earth's meagre resistance, alongside The First Doctor, Ian, Barbara, and Susan.

William Russell, who played Ian in the television serial, reads this novelisation, and his delivery of the various characters' lines is extremely easy on the ear. Russell's narrating of the story is accompanied by Nicholas Briggs' welcome rendition of the metallic Dalek voices. This is a great combination, and makes the experience that much more atmospheric. Terrance Dicks embellishes a tight script for the novel, and as always that is what makes these audios (and the Target books from which they are taken) such essential purchases for Doctor Who fans.
