This is a dramatic reinvention of the very first Doctor Who novel from 1963 and the hundreds of novels that followed, but few can claim to have surpassed its powerful storytelling and unique atmosphere. Written by Doctor Who's first story editor, David Whitaker and lavishly illustrated by acclaimed comic book artist Robert Hack.

Adapted from Terry Nation's first Dalek story, DOCTOR WHO AND THE DALEKS sees Ian Chesterton and Barbara Wright caught up in the flight through time and space of the mysterious Doctor and his granddaughter Susan. They travel in the TARDIS to the planet Skaro, where they strive to save the peace-loving Thals from the evil intentions of the hideous Daleks. Can they succeed? And if they do, will Ian and Barbara ever again see their native Earth?

This is the ultimate edition of an iconic novel - a deluxe volume that embraces both proud tradition and modern innovation to present the drama of a Dalek dystopia as you've never seen it before...

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.

Robert Hack designed covers for several of IDW and Titan Comics Doctor Whocomic series as well as covers for Cutaway Comics spin-off series. Robert Hack's is a a comic books artist who's previous work includes Star Wars Vader's Castle and The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
