5.0 out of 5 stars Everything Dalek! A Brill Read! What a book!, 15 May 2011
By 
This review is from: Doctor Who: The Dalek Handbook (Hardcover)
At a 160 pages, this crams a lot of facts, storylines, Dalekmania and much more.. all in one pocket size hardbook that is just sensational.

The authors of the 'Dalek Handbook' have done a great job in their research. Not only is every single TV Dalek story is compiled but a host of theatre productions, films, and books. All the Dalek paradigms are included from their first appearance from the 1960s.

The book is wonderfully layed out with colour/b & w photographs throughout, with rare photo shots as well as minor screen captures here and there. There's some terrific photos from 'Day of the Daleks' and 'Planet of the Daleks'.

I found the book really absorbing. For the average fan, they may know a lot of the stuff in this book, but the way the book is richly researched, it makes this book a must buy. Just look at the samples above in the picture pages on this Amazon website to see what I mean.

There have been similar Dalek books in the past like the wonderful 1979's Target book 'Terry Nation's Dalek Special' which actually gets featured in this 'Dalek Handbook'.

This book is not just for die hard fans of Dr Who, but anyone who likes the Daleks from Classic Dr Who to the 'New' series one.
