Remembrance of The Daleks - in Print

  • A novelisation of this serial, written by Ben Aaronovitch, was published by Target Books in June 1990. The book also has a noticeably higher word count than most previous novelisations. It is here that the ancient Gallifreyan figure known as "The Other" first appears. Aaronovitch's novelisation also contains a reference to Kadiatu Lethbridge-Stewart, the granddaughter of Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart. Kadiatu's own great-granddaughter and namesake was a recurring character in the Virgin New Adventures, including Aaronovitch's own Transit and The Also People. There are also several flashbacks, most notably one for Davros describing the accident that left him crippled, which formed the basis of similar flash backs in the audio play Davros and the series I, Davros. Certain phrases are also translated into the Dalek's language and it is established that they refer to the Doctor as the "Ka Faraq Gatri", which is variously translated as "Bringer of Darkness" or "Destroyer of Worlds". The phrase is used throughout the Virgin New Adventures series to refer to the increasingly dark actions of the Seventh Doctor and is referred to again in "Journey's End" where Davros condemns the Tenth Doctor as the "Destroyer of Worlds". The novelisation of this story is widely considered to be one of the best of the entire series.
  • The novelisation also states that the troops seen in this story were from a unit known as the "Intrusion Counter-Measures Group". UNIT Exposed, the 1991 Doctor Who Magazine Winter Special, suggested that the ICMG was a forerunner of UNIT. This was picked up on and expanded in the spin-off novel Who Killed Kennedy by David Bishop, which provides a fictional history of UNIT from an investigative journalist's perspective. Who Killed Kennedy also stated that Dr Rachel Jensen was drafted from the British Rocket Group.

Famous quotes containing the word print:

    Who should come to my lodge this morning but a true Homeric or Paphlagonian man,—he had so suitable and poetic a name that I am sorry I cannot print it here,—a Canadian, a woodchopper and post-maker, who can hole fifty posts in a day, who made his last supper on a woodchuck which his dog caught.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    What do I care
    that the stream is trampled,
    the sand on the stream-bank
    still holds the print of your foot:
    the heel is cut deep.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)
