5.0 out of 5 stars "Through the ruins of a city stalked the ruins of a man", 17 Mar. 2013
This review is from: Doctor Who And The Dalek Invasion Of Earth (Audio CD)
Originally published in 1977, Terrance Dicks' novelisation of Terry Nation's 1964 tv script is a solid adaptation. He seems to have worked from Terry Nation's draft scripts, as he reintroduces various scenes that were cut from the transmitted programme.

The story, thanks in no small part to its adaptation as the second Peter Cushing Dalek movie, is one of the most familiar in the Doctor Who canon. The Daleks have invaded and subjugated the Earth. But the reasons why are more puzzling. The Doctor and his companions land in a ruined London, but the presence of the Daleks mean that they soon have to flee the capital. The centre of activity seems to be in the countryside, which the Daleks have turned into a giant mine. But what are they mining for, and how can the Doctor defeat them?

Read by William Russell, with Dalek voices by Nicholas Briggs, this a cracking entry in the Doctor Who Classic Novels series. Anything read by Russell is well worth a listen, and although the story is familiar, William Russell still manages to hold the listeners attention really well.

For anybody who's looking to cherry pick some of these releases, The Dalek Invasion of Earth is well worth picking up.
