The Time Lords have a mission for the Doctor. Together with Sarah and Harry, he finds himself stranded on the war-torn planet Skaro where the conflict between the Thals and the Kaleds has been raging for a thousand years. Chemical and biological weapons have started a cycle of mutation among the planet’s inhabitants that cannot be stopped. But Kaled scientist Davros has perfected a life support system and travel machine for the creature he knows his race will ultimately evolve into – the Dalek. The Doctor must stop the creation of the Daleks, or perhaps affect their development so they evolve into less aggressive creatures. But with Davros’s plans to destroy the Thals and to wipe out any dissenters among his own ranks in progress, is the Doctor already too late? This novel is based on a Doctor Who story which was originally broadcast from 8 March–12 April 1975.

"The Doctor is repairing the TARDIS systems once again when it is swept up by a garbage ship roving through space, the Quetzal. When another ship approaches and takes the Quetzal by force, the Doctor discovers that he and Sam are not the only unwitting travelers on board -- there is a strangely familiar survival pod in the hold. Delani, the captain of the second ship, orders the pod to be opened. The Doctor is powerless to intervene as Davros is awakened once again. But this is no out-and-out rescue of Davros. Delani and his crew are Thals, the sworn enemies of the Daleks. They intend to use Davros as a means to wipe out the Daleks, finally ridding the universe of the most aggressive, deadly race ever to exist. But the Doctor is still worried. For there is a signal beacon inside the pod, and even now a Dalek ship is closing in."--Page 4 of cover.

And he also knows that if he doesn't do something very clever very soon, matters will get very, very out of hand"--

Recuperating after the trauma of his recent regeneration, the Doctor falls foul of a final booby-trap set by his arch-enemy, the Master. When he recovers, the disoriented Doctor looks in a mirror and sees the face of a stranger. He knows only that he is called "the Doctor" -- nothing more. But something deep inside tells him to trust the TARDIS, and his hands move over the controls of their own accord. The TARDIS takes him to a strangely familiar junkyard in late-nineties London, where he is flung into a confrontation between local drug-dealers and Samantha Jones, a rebellious teenage from Coal Hill School. But the Doctor soon finds the TARDIS transporting him to various other places in order to recover all of his memories -- and that involves seeing seven strangely-familiar faces."--Page 4 of cover.
