Publisher's Summary

The Daleks are advancing, their empire constantly expanding in to Earth's space. The Earth forces are resisting the Daleks in every way they can. But the battles rage on across countless solar systems. And now the future of our galaxy hangs in the balance... The Doctor finds himself stranded on board a starship near the front line with a group of ruthless bounty hunters.

Earth Command will pay them for every Dalek they kill, every eye stalk they bring back as proof. With the Doctor's help, the bounty hunters achieve the ultimate prize: a Dalek prisoner - intact, powerless, and ready for interrogation. But where the Daleks are involved, nothing is what it seems, and no one is safe. Before long the tables will be turned, and how will the Doctor survive when he becomes a prisoner of the Daleks?



  • Koral's unique ability, of being able to extend blades from her fingers, may be a reference to the "Razorgirls" of the sci-fi novel Neuromancer. (It might also be a reference to X-Men as Wolverine and Lady Deathstrike among other characters can also do this.)
  • The planet Auros is blown up by Osterhagen technology.
  • The Daleks in this book are pre-Time War due to the Doctor crossing the Dalek timeline. It specifically takes place during the Second Dalek War of the 26th century (see History of the Daleks), though a specific year isn't given.)
  • Skaro is still in existence due to being pre-Time War and end of Dalek civil war, and mention of a Supreme Dalek.
  • The planet "Gauda Prime" is a reference to Blake's 7; this is the name of the planet on which the last episode of that series was set. ("Auros" may be another such reference, being similair to "Auron", Cally's home planet from B7.)
  • The Daleks' speech is printed using a similair font to that used in The Dalek Chronicles and other comic strips.
