4.0 out of 5 stars A great little book, 6 July 2006
This review is from: The Dalek Survival Guide (Dr Who) (Paperback)
Did you know that the Post Office can supply form DS-159/G-1 which should be filled out should you ever spot a Dalek? (Though if you do be prepared to fill in how many previous sightings you've filed turned out to be false alarms!)

Such is the content of this great little book. It covers subjects such as a "know your enemy" spotters guide, through what one should do if faced with a Dalek, and finally a section devoted to facts, figures and FAQs.

Peppered throughout are a wealth of amusing illustrations ranging from palaeolithic cave paintings depicting flint-speared battles against Daleks, through to detailed diagrams describing which appendages are best avoided...

The overall tone of this book is that of typical quirky British humour. It may jar with some hardcore Who fans due to the light hearted approach it takes to the subject, but that only helps to make it accessible to everyone else!

The target audience is undoubtably 30 and 40-somethings who have grown up with Dalek stories, and hence have the right mix of nostalgic affection for the jokes to find their mark.

If Dr.Who elicits childhood memories of hiding behind the sofa at your grandparent's house on Saturday evenings, then you NEED this book.

However, for a small book with 158 pages in a fairly large and well spaced font, a four star rating simply has to be the maximum given its price...
