Doctor Who in an Exciting Adventure With the Daleks

free download Doctor Who in an Exciting Adventure With the Daleks

This is Doctor Who's first exciting adventure with the Daleks Ian Chesterton and Barbara Wright travel with the mysterious Doctor Who. This was the first ever novelisation of a Doctor Who tv story first published in the mid 60s To most fans of the show this book is all kinds of wonderful being hugely nostalgic and a crackingly well written novel in its own right Back then this was the only way to relive an episode VCRs or DVDs were far fetched science fiction ideas than some ones in the show David Whitaker was Story Editor on the original serial and here he takes Terry Nation's script and really adds life and depth Told in the first person from the point of view of Ian Chesterton the story kicks off by choosing to replace the whole school scenario of the first episode of an Unearthly Child with characters meeting each other for the first time after a traffic accident on Barnes Common It's a pretty atmospheric opening The Doctor is hostile and sly playing his mindgames with Ian The psychology of walking through those police box doors is explored uite comprehensively by Whitaker Due to the limited point of view some characters don't get as much of the limelight as they might have done notably Susan Her alien ualities get lost in retelling and her early baptism of fire having to retrieve the radiation drugs alone through the petrified forest is only briefly mentioned as she recounts the episode to her friends It's also fun to learn a bit about the Tardis facilities and I would like to know what Venusian Night Fish or Martian Summer berries taste like Other additions to the script are a full description of a Dalek mutant a Glass Dalek Everlasting Matches an amusing boxing match that Ian arranges to try to get the Thalls to regard fighting in the same way as other physical sports the seeds of a romance between Ian and Barbara an un sonic buttonhook and Ian's smoking habit Whitaker writes well and has a nice line in poetic phrasing but he also knows how to colour a story with little character points and humour I have only fond memories of reading this book back in the 1970s and I greatly enjoyed the recent reread I'd like to think that the new reprints of these books will inspire a new generation of children in the same way as they did me when I was a little boy wandering about that big building

Hals from the evil intentions of the hideous Daleks Can they succeed And what is important will they ever see their native Earth agai. Most of my experience with the Doctor started in 2005 with the 9th Doctor and I'll admit that at first I was intrigued by a time traveling madman that looked sounded and acted like a British version of a good friend of mine I've had sporadic run ins with prior incarnations since I was a small child but they were solitary episodes with no background to what was going on When I did find them I mainly watched them because of the simplistic set designsNow that I'm several decades older and my tastes have evolved concurrently with the 'Grim Meat hook Future' paradigm of science fiction it was an absolute pleasure to start re familiarizing myself with the introduction of the First Doctor in all of his malicious glory to the KaledsA fairly straight forward plot told from the point of view of one of the Doctor's new companions and adapted from an early serial Doctor Who's Exciting Adventures with the Daleks seems to be broken into 3 main acts The Doctor seems to be the central pivot of the plot than a full blown character in and of himself This is both good in that from Ian's perspective the Doctor is shown to be than a bit of a dick and bad I always feel a little disappointed when a titular character is reduced to co starring status I did enjoy the descriptions of a war torn Skaro and the early limitations placed on the Daleks they can't move off of metal floors or their casings stop receiving power little technological marvels beyond presumably atomic warheads and using static electricity for power generation The descriptions of the Thals were bland in a noble savage reclaiming their societal heritage way and the telegraphing of Barbara's feelings towards an oblivious Ian could have used some work but I will admit that their may be some temporal prejudice on my part in terms of reading a 50 year old storyOverall it was a fun uick read and I'm interested in checking out both the original serial that this was taken from and the rest of the reprints of the Target Dr Who books Cradle of Solitude run ins with prior incarnations since I was a small child but they were solitary episodes with no background to what was going on When I did find them I mainly watched them because of the simplistic set designsNow that I'm several decades older and my tastes have evolved concurrently with the 'Grim Meat hook Future' paradigm of science fiction it was an absolute pleasure to start Cowboy Under the Mistletoe re familiarizing myself with the introduction of the First Doctor in all of his malicious glory to the KaledsA fairly straight forward plot told from the point of view of one of the Doctor's new companions and adapted from an early serial Doctor Who's Exciting Adventures with the Daleks seems to be broken into 3 main acts The Doctor seems to be the central pivot of the plot than a full blown character in and of himself This is both good in that from Ian's perspective the Doctor is shown to be than a bit of a dick and bad I always feel a little disappointed when a titular character is The Christmas Wedding Quilt: Let It Snow\You Better Watch Out\Nine Ladies Dancing reduced to co starring status I did enjoy the descriptions of a war torn Skaro and the early limitations placed on the Daleks they can't move off of metal floors or their casings stop Crybaby Falls receiving power little technological marvels beyond presumably atomic warheads and using static electricity for power generation The descriptions of the Thals were bland in a noble savage Criminal Intent reclaiming their societal heritage way and the telegraphing of Barbara's feelings towards an oblivious Ian could have used some work but I will admit that their may be some temporal prejudice on my part in terms of The Sharpshooter's Secret Son reading a 50 year old storyOverall it was a fun uick Criminal Intent read and I'm interested in checking out both the original serial that this was taken from and the The Daddy List rest of the The Cowboy Collection: Caitlyn's Prize / Madison's Children / A Cowboy's Plan / This Cowboy's Son / The Horseman's Secret / The Brother Returns reprints of the Target Dr Who books

    The Doctor meet his arch enemies for the first time This is a novelization of the serial of the same title Based on the original script by Terry Nation creator of The Daleks WHO The DoctorThe First DoctorCompanionsSusan Foreman Ian Chesterton Barbara Wright WHERE WHEN Planet Skaro Non specified time WHAT This novelization of the second TV serial of Doctor Who is a good example of the importance of having here on Goodreads not only a rating system but also the chance of writing a review Since my 3 star rate having taken alone could mislead my reasons of that over the uality of the TV serial from what this book was writtenWhile this was the second TV serial of Doctor Who this was the first authorized novelization ever made in the franchise So due that the author had to write an explanation of how the main characters The Doctor Susan Ian and Barbara encountered each other uite odd but understandable However the bad part wasn't that but the even odder decision of making up a totally different situation of how the four characters met and how they began their travels in time Fortunately I was aware about this inconsistency with the canon of the franchise but this may confound some readersAlso the author did other even odder choice using Ian Chesterton as the narrator of the book so you get the story from his point of view that it's something really strange since none other Doctor Who novel has used this And it was some limitant to get the whole picture of the story And Ian isn't a very good narrator turning kinda tedious the story at some momentsAt some minor level on the TV serial clearly it's spoken about radiation even the topic of radiation seems to be big deal for the First Doctor since the first serial checking always the levels of radiation of any place before of getting out of the TARDIS However in this novelization it's only spoken about poisoning air instead of just using the issue of radiationAnd speaking of the TARDIS it's odd that the author spells the time ship's as Tardis and not with full capitals since it's an acronymGetting into the storyThe First Doctor is still getting used to have companions and while he is nicer than in the first serial An Unearthly Child he is hardly a nice person since Barbara has to fight with him to make him to feel some compasion for the Thals and also the First Doctor deceives the group to fulfill his selfish desires of exploring the city without thinking in the security of themFifty years later anybody knows that the Daleks are pure evil but reading the way as the group met them it was odd how they were pretty sure that they must be evil when they still hadn't do anything evil but just controling some unknown visitors of their city But certainly they know how to convince anybody how evil they can be since without spoiling the way that they deal with the original leader of the Thals Geez This is a strange story where you aren't sure how good are doing the group since they teach the Thals encouraging them to fight back against the Daleks A civilization that learned in the hard way their lesson of how terrible is making war and the group tell them that they should to make war yet again since it seems that it's the only way to survive mmh and this makes them different from the Daleks in which way? And the way to deal with the Daleks is not only beaten them no they are looking to power down them and in that way all the Daleks will die sure we know that that didn't happen The Daleks would be around the next 50 years but again how the Thals would be the good guys if they are doing whatever they can to exterminate the Daleks?And again this is some of the great points of sci fi like Doctor Who that things aren't just white or black but a large scale of grays where each reader should take a time to think about

    It all started out as a mild curiosity inBarnes CommonThe first Doctor Who novelisation clearly capitalising on Dalekmania at the time as we get a whole new introduction to how Ian and Barbara met the time traveling DoctorTarget books were essential reading for those growing up at this time it was the only chance to be able to enjoy an old storySo inconsistencies will appear throughout the range so it seems fitting that this trend started from the first published bookI uite liked the differences If it makes the storytelling easier and accessible for fans of any age then the author has succeeded

    One of Doctor Who's original leading men reads the first story novelization with Doctor Who and the DaleksWritten when audiences would rarely if ever have a chance to see the original seven part story this was based on author David Whitacker makes some interesting choices in the novelization of Terry Nation's original scripts The first is to have the story told from the first person perspective of travelling companion Ian Chesterton This choice makes for some interesting moments in the story such as seeing and hearing Ian's reaction to first finding the TARDIS and being inside a Dalek but it also takes away one of the most iconic moments in television with Barbara's first encounter with a Dalek Perhaps Whitacker felt the scene couldn't be done justice on the printed page Whitacker also uses the story to introduce readers to the Doctor and the TARDIS borrowing some of the elements of the first episode of Doctor Who in the first several chapters This alternate look at how the TARDIS crew came together is interesting and I find it particularily fascinating that Ian and Barbara don't know each other before entering the TARDIS hereAlso of interest is the final stages when the Daleks are clearly controlled by a glass Dalek something that would have been nearly impossible to achieve on the budget of the 60s though it was attempted years later during Colin Baker's reign Not sure if this was meant to tie into Whitacker's two Dalek stories during the Troughton era with the Emperor Dalek though I did find msyelf thinking of Davros when we first met the mysterious force behind the Daleks Differences aside this is a nice telling of the orignal adventures with the Daleks Some portions of the story are truncated some expanded but for the most part it works Whitacker's storytelling is well done though Ian does seem to be a bit focused on looking into the eyes of his travelling companionsAs read by William Russell the man who brought Ian to life on the small screen the audio book is a treat Definitely a must hear if you're a fan of Doctor Who

    Love this book gave me everything that I wanted in a Doctor Who bookCan't find any fault excellent writing style really enjoyed the book

    The novelization of The Daleks the second ever televised Doctor Who story and one of my favorites The beginning was odd tweaked to make this adventure the beginning so there's a hasty reworking of An Unearthly Child in this version Barbara and Ian are strangers and Ian had never met Susan before either and Skaro becomes their first stop rather than 10000 BC The plot then or less follows the action from the show up until the Thals show up and then there are only minor embellishments up until the climaxThe biggest difference besides the cool creature in the climax was Barbara being pretty distant and much less practical pining after Ian mind you having only been acuainted for literal days and a resolution that implies they go on as a couple And that's well and good I personally ship it but this watered down version of Barbara really bugged me and the whole pining from afar is so out of character and created a weird awkwardness between her and Ian through the whole story instead of the warmth they had in the series

    This was the first novelisation of Classic Doctor Who and it’s written in first person from Ian Chesterton’s point of view It was hard to read and I didn’t particularly enjoy it from Ian’s perspective
