Own accord then dropped to the floor The Invisible EnemyAfter pursuing the Daleks through Space Doctor Who lands on the Planet of Spiridon in the midst of a tropical jungle. No less than modern day Dalek maestro Nicholas Briggs has observed that Terry Nation s 1973 story The Planet of the Daleks was the Daleks greatest hits That Nation returning to the series for the first time in nearly a decade reworked his earlier scripts to a large extent creating a six part story that feels incredibly derivative Derivative and a little on the dull side at times That is on screen at least Because Terrance Dicks novelization published three years later is a very different animal Dicks fixes the major pacing issues the TV version had with its series of escapes and captures having flow in prose Elsewhere he s also able to fill in some of the plot holes Nation left in his TV version and even offers up the odd bit of expanded exposition Perhaps above all else Dicks also can paint in words those things that the BBC Special Effects Department sometimes struggled to realize visually back in 1973 Reading this is like getting a director s cut version of the story what it would have been like if circumstances were a tad bit different It s also a tribute to Dicks whose passing was announced a short time before I picked the book up to read that it reads so well It feels like a uintessential Target novelization It may not have the depth of one of the better Malcolm Hulke or Ian Marter books or say Marc Platt s superb expansion of Ghost Light It is all the same an immensely satisfying and pacey tale and one that should satisfy fans new and old

Jo peered through the panel and saw nothing Yet someone had entered the cabin She could hear hoarse breathing and stealthy padding footsteps A beaker rose in the air of its. Planet of the Daleks was a six part story featuring the Third Doctor Jon Pertwee and companion Jo Grant It was first shown in April to May 1973 and it s one I remember well though I suspect because I may have seen a repeat showing of it later The story starts with a dramatic cold open as the Doctor seemingly lies in the Tardis dying you would have to known that this was a cliffhanger from the previous story Frontier in Space which ends with the Master shooting the Doctor Landing on a planet Jo goes to finds help while the Doctor finds himself trapped inside the Tardis and running out of air Don t worry though because all of this build up is seemingly forgotten within five pages to make way for the plotIt s an exciting story with an army of Daleks a group of Thals the Daleks ancient enemy seeking to sabotage them and invisible monsters that live on the planet All this translates rather better on the page than it did on the screen with a six part story you get a lot of running around The Dalek army if I recall consisted of the production team going out and buying as many Dalek toys as they could find and setting them up on a flat surface Similarly the idea of an invisible monster might have sounded like a good way of saving money technicians waving fronds to simulate movement for example but it just doesn t work The less said about the jungle the better as this was done all on set and so it looks totally fake Back to the story though The Doctor and Jo are portrayed well here as are the Thals and Spiridons the invisible inhabitants of the planet The Daleks fare less well having far too many emotions being shown at times can they really show things such as amazement and astonishment Anger I can understand though as the motley crew successfully destroys the waiting Dalek armyAn entertaining 3 stars

    The most frustrating thing about reading the Target novelizations in episode order rather than published order is that you never know what sort of junk you're going to wind up with So when this episode was broadcast it was the second part of an adventure where the Third Doctor tangles with the Master Daleks and Draconians The first part was novelized as the Space War and ended with the Doctor just fine because

    On TV Planet of the Daleks is simplistic bombastic kids fun bloated over 6 episodes But in the hands of Terrance Dicks this becomes a perfect Doctor Who novelization It cuts out the fat bulks up the plot logic and keeps all the best bits intact It becomes a thrilling all ages action adventure with all the moments of charm
