I'm currently reading this e-book. This is first Doctor Who novel ever published and is slightly different from the televised version. It's pretty good, though, and a pretty quick read. BBC Books reprinted this from the Target novelizations along with five other titles. I hope they will continue to reprint these.

- So, I finished the book. It's pretty good. In the BBC Books edition, there is an afterward that talks about how this differs from the televised story and why. It also notes a few things that this book does first such as a glass Dalek that wouldn't be seen until "Revelation of the Daleks", a Sixth Doctor story. This book was also the first use of the word "Exterminate" which wouldn't be seen on-screen until "Power of the Daleks" (incidentally a chapter title in this book) shortly after this book was released. "Exterminate" actually didn't become a mantra for the Daleks until later.Feb 3, 2012
