July 20, 1989 in Doctor Who: “The Chase” novelisation published

“Through a Space-Time Visualiser the First Doctor and his companions are horrified to see an execution squad of Daleks about to leave Skaro on a mission to find the TARDIS and exterminate the time travellers.

Eluding the Daleks on the barren planet Aridius the Doctor and his friends escape in the TARDIS. But this is only the beginning of an epic journey.

As they travel through space and time, they try to shake off their pursuers by making a series of random landings-but the Daleks don’t give up easily. This is a chase to the death…”

The Chase was a novelisation based on the 1965 television serial The Chase, written by John Peel, and published by Target Books in July 1989. It was the first of several Dalek story novelisations Peel would write after Target came to an agreement with Terry Nation’s agent.

Because many of the changes made to Nation’s original proposal were for timing and budgetary reasons, rather than artistic ones, Peel restored most of Nation’s original ideas in his novelisation. It was published again in 1991. [Wikipedia] [tardis.wikia.com]
