Deviations from televised story Edit
- The Production Notes commentary on the 2009 DVD release of Delta and the Bannermen revealed that the first edition of the novelisation contains an unfortunate typographical error: during the scene in which the Doctor and Ray are caught snooping on Gavrok, the Doctor is described as "peeing over" instead of "peering over" a shelf. This is unfortunate as "peeing" is common slang for the act of bodily urination. The typographical error also exists in the 1991 reissue. The error can be found in both editions on page 54.
- On TV, Burton has a dog. However there is no mention of this dog in the novelisation.
- On TV, Hawk burns his hand when he enters the ray of the sonic cone, but in the book, he injures his head.
- In the novelisation the Doctor and Mel mention visiting the planets Zoth and Themlon.
- The epilogue of the book shows Billy, Delta and her daughter arriving on the brood planet, which is said to be covered in hexagonal chambers as far as the eye can see. Delta and her daughter stay on the brood planet and Billy takes the Bannermen to a galactic court before returning to the brood planet.
Writing and publishing notes Edit
- The first edition features a typographical error on the spine, referring to the book as Doctor Who – Delta and the Bannerman.
- A proposed hardback edition for January 1989 was never released.
