Doctor Who And The Face Of Evil Target Paperback Novel First Impression 1978 By Terrance Dicks. Released by WH Allen, paperback division Target Books in 1978. Setting the controls for Earth, the Doctor is surprised when the Tardis lands in a primeval forest. Has the Tracer gone wrong or has some impulse deep in his unconscious mind directed him to this alien planet? In investigating the forest, the Doctor meets and assists Leela, a warrior banished from her tribe, the Sevateem. Through Leela, it gradually becomes apparent that the constant war between the Sevateem and the Tesh has been instigated by the god they both worship, Xoanon. Xoanon, an all powerful computer, is possessed by a desperate madness - a madness that is directly related to the Doctor, that causes Xoanon to assume the voice and form of the Doctor, a madness that is partly caused by the Doctor and that only the Doctor himself can rectify! The Doctor must not only do battle with Xoanon, but also must escape from the savage practices of the Sevateem, and the technically mind controlling destructive impulses of the Tesh. This fantastic Doctor Who and the Face Of Evil Paperback Book, is in very good condition, which is amazing considering it is now 40 years old, the front and back covers are nice clean and bright but does have some minor shelf wear along the edges. The spline is in near perfect condition with no visual signs of any shelf wear. Internally the book is in near mint condition, all 128 pages are present and attached they are clean and bright with no writing or damage on any page other than a name has been wrote inside the front cover. A truly fantastic example of a vintage Dr Who Paperback Book from yesteryear. All orders received before 4.00pm Monday to Fridays are shipped the same day
