* AdaptationExpansion: ''Doctor Who in an Exciting Adventure with the Daleks'' (usually shortened to ''Doctor Who and the Daleks''). The first ever novelization, David Whitaker's expansion adds a completely different introduction for Ian, Barbara, and the Doctor; also, there's a metric ton of TARDIS lore in about the third chapter. Another highlight is the appearance of a "king" Dalek in a glass casing, which would not appear until [[Recap/DoctorWhoS22E6RevelationOfTheDaleks Revelation of the Daleks]] [[note]]In that story, the glass Dalek is an "incubator," within which an old friend of the Doctor's is gradually turning into a Dalek/human hybrid[[/note]].

Added DiffLines:

* ObscuredSpecialEffects: We never get to see the creature inside the Dalek casing, save for a blink-and-you-miss-it shot of a dark hand-like organ twitching underneath a coat. This was because they'd already blown all the budget on building loads of Daleks, but it fortunately worked as NothingIsScarier horror as well. The "Dalekmania" tie-in media intentionally censored the appearance of the mutant in its Dalek cross-section diagrams for these reasons.

* BigDamnKiss: Barbara doesn't waste any time in becoming the first person in the series to snog someone: a handsome young Thal on Skaro.

whirlpool. Also the one with the debut of everybody's favourite xenophobic salt shakers.



[[FamousLastWords How wrong he was.]]

Susan gets mildly traumatised a few times over but eventually learns how to be brave, Ian puts his ChronicHeroSyndrome to good use, and Barbara fancies one of the Thals and gets in a good snog by the end.

[[FamousLastWords How so very wrong he was.]]

Susan gets mildly traumatised traumatized a few times over but eventually learns how to be brave, Ian puts his ChronicHeroSyndrome to good use, and Barbara fancies one of the Thals and and, in what will turn out to be a rare sight for Classic Who, gets in a good snog by the end.



* AllUpToYou: To save the lives of others, poor little Susan braves a jungle at night in a storm while suffering from radiation sickness, travels several miles, navigates to a pinpoint target to fetch some anti-radiation glov-er, drugs, then keeps it together when surprised by a apparent monster that proves to be a handsome man. Self-possession of the highest order!

* NothingIsScarier: When they crack open a Dalek, Ian appears visibly horrified at what he sees inside, and tells the two girls to wait in the hallway so they don't see. The audience also never sees what's inside, either, except for a single claw later struggling from underneath a cloak. Of course, the audience does eventually see the creature inside a Dalek in later episodes. Although, given that this is a different offshoot, what's inside ''these'' particular Daleks might appear totally different...

** The first appearance of a Dalek is a POV shot of a sink plunger menacing Barbara. Simple, but effective.

** Ian drinks from a river and the camera shows his face reacting in horror to something underwater. He has no idea what it was he saw and later on a secondary character in the same place is heard screaming in fear as he is dragged under the surface. What exactly it was is never revealed.

** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS36E5Oxygen Many, many years later]], it was established that the TARDIS ''can'' fly without the fluid link when the Twelfth Doctor claims that it can't as a bluff to keep someone who wants to strand him from tampering with more important bits of the TARDIS.
