4.0 out of 5 stars Dalek Man, 4 Mar 2012
This review is from: The Man Who Invented the Daleks: The Strange Worlds of Terry Nation (Hardcover)
A very enjoyable book, not only because of the Dalek content but also for the other shows Nation instigated and worked on. I loved the objective nature of the book. It's not just a gushing: Terry is wonderful affair, it also recognises the man's weaknesses as well as his strengths. Very entertaining, Nation wasn't keen on Whitaker's Dalek stories which in my opinion were two of the very best Dalek tales ever told... and his treatment of the designer was at best rather shoddy. The whole episode leaves a bad taste in the mouth. It reminds me of the Stan Lee / artist debate. Were the artists in question just artists working on Lee's concepts, or did their involvement constitute Co creation? Yes Nation created the Daleks in concept, but would they have been as successful without Ray's iconic designs?

All in all though a very good read.
