    " It was a fun book, but reading the story is not nearly as fun as watching the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kadri | 1/29/2014

    " I still can't shake the feeling, when reading novelisations of TV-shows, that I'm reading official fan fiction. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paul Doody | 1/18/2014

    " The very first Doctor Who novel, based on the first Dalek story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeremy | 1/11/2014

    " This audio book is punctuated by a tasteful amount of music and sound effects, the best of which is the transformation of reader William Russell's voice into that of a Dalek. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sean | 8/19/2013

    " Enjoyable read - very similar to the serial but some differences. The book is more exciting than the episodes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becca R.G. | 7/4/2013

    " Enjoyable, but occasionally annoying. (Also, the title on mine is Doctor Who and the Daleks, but it seems to be the same story.) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Adam | 5/6/2013

    " A novelisation of the Doctor's meeting with the Daleks. Whilst it differs slightly from the original BBC TV scripts, the story is the same. Interesting in that it gives some idea of how much Doctor Who has moved on in 50 years. "

    " the alterations to the canon of Who in the first chapter took a while for me to get past, but in all it was good "

    " Another bit of Who history, the very first Dalek story.

    Aside from that, it's a good story, very epic feeling and a real sense of menace from the Daleks. "
