PANINI is back with issue #9 of their lavish and informative bookazines in The Essential Doctor Who: Invasions of Earth.
This brand new 116-page edition, from the makers of Doctor Who
magazine, looks at the most memorable episodes in Doctor Who history
with great interviews, articles and pictures taking us down memory lane.
There is a tribute to the Brigadier Nicholas Courtney, a look at
Terry Nation’s original storyline for ‘The Dalek Invasion of Earth’ and
at Jon Pertwee’s unmade story ‘The Spare-Part People’.
The Essential Doctor Who: Invasions of Earth also includes 8 interviews with:
- Anna Barry (Day of the Daleks)
- Ray Brooks (Daleks’ Invasion Earth 2150 A.D.)
- Johnny Byrne (Warriors of the Deep)
- Michael Ferguson (The Seeds of Death, The Claws of Axos)

Editor Marcus Hearn says: “Invasions of Earth have been central
to Doctor Who since 1964. It was a big subject for us to tackle, but
we’ve managed to cover almost every major era of the series with some
fascinating articles and plenty of rare images. This is the story of our
planet’s most epic battles!”
