Daleks Versus the Martians was a comic story published in the Doctor Who Magazine Spring Special 1996. It was written by Alan Barnes.

The story was one of only two which attempted to illustrate other adventures of the character of Dr. Who, who had appeared in two theatrical films in the 1960s. A prequel to Daleks' Invasion Earth 2150 A.D., the story featured Dr. Who meeting the Daleks on Mars, where they appear to be planning an attack on the blue planet of Earth.

Summary Edit

While exploring the mysteries of the Martian Sphinx, Dr. Who, Louise and Susan are captured by Daleks who have moved into the Sol system, closer to Earth. Dr. Who and Susan escape with the help of the native Martians and are taken to a city beneath the Sphinx. Dr. Who activates a dormant fighting robot there. As Dr. Who rescues Louise from the Daleks (who have learnt about TARDIS), the robot attacks and destroys the Daleks' Martian base. This only delays their future attack on "the Blue Planet".
