This is a work of non-fiction.

Unlike other fictional universes, the Doctor Who universe is created solely by fiction. To us, this is not a valid source. Information from this source can only be used in "behind the scenes" sections, or on pages about real world topics.


The Daemons was the sixth in Titan Books' releases of serial scripts. As of August 2017, it remains the only Third Doctor script to be made available commercially.

Unlike the cases of the television story and the novelisation, there was no attempt to use the letter æ in the title of this publication.

Publisher's summary Edit

DEVIL'S END... An ancient archaeological barrow. A White Witch warning of impending doom. A trio of formidable foes — Azal, Boc and... the Master! The Doctor and Jo Grant, his assistant, are soon to come face-to-face with an evil almost as old as time itself.

Read the complete, classic script of a story voted by fans the best ever Doctor Who, together with fascinating background and technical information.

Notable features Edit

  • In the back cover text (see Publisher's summary above), Bok's name is misspelt as "Boc". However, the name is spelt correctly inside.
  • On page 15, mention is made of the recording of "episodes five and six in TC3 on Wednesday May 26th". This is obviously a misprint, but may well be the source of the popular myth that there was originally a sixth episode.
