Doctor Who: The Power of the Daleks

Doctor Who: The Power of the Daleks

2nd Doctor Novelisation


Nicholas Briggs reads this epic novelisation of the Second Doctor's debut TV adventure.

Following an encounter with the Cybermen, the Doctor's life appears to hang in the balance - until, before the eyes of his companions Ben and Polly, his physical appearance is transformed!

Disoriented after his regeneration, the Doctor takes the TARDIS to the Earth colony planet Vulcan. Ben and Polly are disturbed - the Doctor isn't the man he used to be. The Doctor is also worried; the colonists have found the remains of two Daleks, which they plan to revive!

Once reanimated, the Daleks claim that they are content to serve humanity. Can it really be true? Or do they have their own, more sinister plans?

Nicholas Briggs, who is the voice of the Daleks in Doctor Who, reads John Peel's novelisation of the original 1966 TV serial by David Whitaker.
