The Daleks are a huge part of Doctor Who history and sci-fi history in general. When the Doctor Who series was halted it was the novels, radio plays and fan fiction that kept it alive. The Dalek stories were a huge part of this. Now, to get them, you can dish out money for CDs OR you can buy this book which has Dalek Empire and Dalek War, which is equal to about eight audio CDs. You can use your MIND and imagination and your own silly voice to read the book. Maybe even out loud if you want. When nobody else is around. Oh, I still plan to get the audio CDs, but this is still fun to have. Lots of behind the scene information and interviews with Nicholas Briggs. Who else, besides the late, great Terry Nation could have pulled off creating so many great stories of the Daleks? Well, besides John Peel.
