'Doctor Who and the Silurians' is adapted by its original author, Malcolm Hulke. This novelisation varies from the original story, principally by adding more detail. However, don't be surprised if not all the details tally!The Doctor has accepted a post as UNIT's scientific adviser in exchange for the use of facilities to repair the TARDIS. He and Liz Shaw are summoned by the Brigadier to Wenley Moor, where strange things are happening at a nuclear research station. There are mysterious power losses, nervous breakdowns, and UNIT's assistance is sought after one scientist is killed and his pot holing companion goes mad.There is something in the caves under Wenley Moor, and it is not friendly...One of the earliest Target novelisations, author Malcolm Hulke obviously takes a fairly free hand in retelling this story. It is a recognition that what works well on TV won't necessarily work well in a book. This book is not simply an adaptation, but a reworking of the story for a different medium.
