Book Review: Terrance Dicks - Doctor Who & the Day of the Daleks
A reprinted adaption of a Target novelisation of the third Doctors first encounter with the pepper pots.
It's a cool little read that romped along at a frantic pace which is pretty much the exact opposite of how these old Pertwee episodes actually were with the story dragged out over 6 or so episodes.
Here the Doctor and Jo are brought in to investigate mysterious attacks on a peace envoy which turns out to be a guerrilla fighter from a Dalek controlled future attempting to change the past. The Doctor is surprisingly passive throughout south only occasional burst of martial arts.
I liked this. It took about an hour to read and was monumentally daft but it was a lot of fun.
