Read full description of the books:
These Target books were among the first books I ever read, along with the Narnia books and any kind of encyclopaedia of dinosaurs. 'Palaeontology' is one of my first big show-off words that I ever picked up. So Doctor Who featuring dinosaurs is win-win.
Malcolm Hulke is usually good value. If he was working from his draft scripts it's clear how much his dialogue needed work, as even though the scene break downs and plots remain pretty much as is, the dialogue eventually broadcast is completely different. Many of the Doctor's rambles about dinosaurs and the nature of time were wisely absent from broadcast. Hulke's novelisation begins with a sequence that ends with a criminal type emerging from a drunken binge to discover that London is deserted. It's a shame that some of the accounts of the first monster sightings got distilled down to a couple of lines; the story about the children encountering a creature that ends in tragedy is chilling. Good to see that Hulke wasn't temped to swap the more practical motorbike for the Whomobile as they did in the broadcast version. I loved the Whomobile as a kid but as an adult it just looks like the indulgence it was. Episode five's padding is reduced to a couple of lines thankfully. Other additions are Butler with his scar and somewhat contradictory back story. Best are the UNIT reports during the last wave of dinosaurs; pterodactyls attacking the ravens of the Tower of London is priceless. Great stuff.

Read information about the authorMalcolm Hulke was a British science fiction writer best known for his tenure as a writer on the popular series Doctor Who. He is credited with writing eight stories for Doctor Who, mostly featuring the Third Doctor as played by Jon Pertwee. With Terrance Dicks, he wrote the final serial of Patrick Troughton's run as the Doctor, the epic ten-part story "The War Games." Hulke may be best known for writing "The Silurians," the story that created the titular race that is still featured in Doctor Who. Hulke's stories were well-known for writing characters that were not black and white in terms of morality: there was never a clear good guy vs. bad guy bent to his story. It has also been noted that Hulke's stories usually had a left-wing political bent, as noted by his contemporaries.
In addition to his television writing, Hulke wrote the novelizations of seven television Doctor Who stories, each of which had written for the screen. He died at the age of fifty-four, shortly before his novelization of "The War Games" would be published.
