Publisher's summary Edit

'Without knowing, you have shown the Daleks what their own strength is!'

In the midst of swinging London, the Daleks run an antique shop. The Victorian items on sale are all completely genuine – but they're also brand new. Soon the Doctor is following a trail back to 1866 and then to the Dalek home planet of Skaro. It's not just the authenticity of a few antiques that’s at stake but what it is that makes us human – and how that can be used.

The Evil of the Daleks (1967) is an epic, strange and eerie conclusion to Doctor Who's fourth series, originally commissioned to kill off the Daleks for good. For all it’s set in history and on an alien world, the production team were consciously grappling with very contemporary issues – and improvising round practical circumstances out of their control.

This Black Archive title explores how The Evil of the Daleks developed from commission to broadcast 50 years ago – and beyond. Painstaking research and new interviews with many of those involved in the production shed fresh light on the story, its characters and its mix of science and history.

Simon Guerrier is a writer and producer, and author of a number of Doctor Who books, comics and audio plays.
