Doctor Who and the Invasion of Time was a novelisation based on the 1978 television serial The Invasion of Time.

Publisher's summary Edit

A traitor to the Time Lords?

Can the Fourth Doctor really be in league with the evil Vardans, spearheading a treacherous invasion of his home planet, Gallifrey?

Or is he playing a deadly double game, saving the Time Lords by appearing to betray them?

But the Vardans themselves are only pawns in the game, and the Doctor faces an old and deadly enemy, as he battles to foil the Invasion of Time.

`Terrance Dicks is a skilful professional storyteller … He has deftly recaptured the programme’s popular blend of hectic menace and humorous self-mockery.’ BRITISH BOOK NEWS

Deviations from televised story Edit

  • Upon materialisation in the Panopticon, the Vardans are described "three tall, shimmering shapes, cloaked and hooded figures with the vaguest hint of features under the hoods."
  • Additionally, it is revealed that the Doctor first learnt of the Vardans' attempted invasion of Gallifrey via a telepathic warning from the Matrix.
