The first Doctor, his first encounter with the Daleks, in a new facsimile edition of the long-out-of-print original 1960s edition. A thick fog and a girl in distress are just the things that Ian Chesterton needs to escape from a life of dull routine. He has no idea that this is merely a prelude to an advernture quite beyond any normal conception of the word. Both he and the girl he tries to help, Barbara Wright, are transported to a distant planet named Skaro by a mysterious old man known to them as the Doctor. With his grand-daughter Susan, the Doctor sets them down in a world all but destroyed by atomic warfare, the only survivors being a peace-loving and cultured people called the Thals and their bitter enemies the Daleks, horribly mutated both in body and mind.

About the Author:

David Whitaker was the first Story Editor for Doctor Who, and was responsible for finding and commissioning writers, and it was Whitaker as much as anyone who defined the narrative shape of Doctor Who. He wrote for the Doctor Who annuals, novelised the first Dalek story and worked with Terry Nation on various Dalek-related material including the hugely successful comic strip The Daleks. David Whitaker died in 1980. Terry Nation started as a comedy writer and performer, and was approached with an offer to work on Doctor Who, providing the seven episodes of the first ever Dalek story. After inventing the Daleks, Nation moved on to work on The Saint, The Champions and The Avengers. In the 1970s he scripted four more Dalek series - including Genesis of the Daleks which has been voted the best ever story in the series. Nation later devised the hugely popular BBC science fiction series Blake's 7. Terry Nation died in Los Angeles in 1996.

From AudioFile:

William Russell, Ian in the original "Doctor Who" series, narrates the novelization of the 1964 season, a retro sci-fi adventure of two average Brits caught up in the mysterious doctor's travels. On the planet Skaro they intervene to save the pacifist Thals from the evil Daleks. Russell reads with earnest breathlessness, making Ian a sturdy, if querulous, hero. He differentiates other voices adequately, with electronic filtering for the Daleks' voices. Frequent sound effects and occasional music are sometimes laughable, sometimes effective. The story has both the charms of old-time sci-fi and the flaws, including some nasty xenophobia. But those who overlook the negatives and get into the spirit will find this title fun.
