5.0 out of 5 stars "...could have flowed from the mighty pen of Terry Nation himself.", 14 Sept. 2012
This review is from: Doctor Who: The Dalek Project (Hardcover)
With portals to a different time-location leading of a Mansion's corridor or even from its Pantry, to legions of all-terrain caterpillar-tracked Germanic-styled daleks, to an archaeological dig that unearths a forgot treasure trove of hate, DOCTOR WHO - THE DALEK PROJECT could have flowed from the mighty pen of Terry Nation himself.

And it's a privilege to say that.

Justin Richards' plotline is seriously eclectic, wonderfully ebullient, and a thrill-a-page that will guarantee that you will want to cruise through the graphic novel a second time, or multiple readings at bedtime to send your children into the land of nod with dreams that the day will be saved by their legendary hero, the Doctor.

Told as a re-cap to Archaeologist, Angela Todd, the Time Lord recounts how remains of a dalek space capsule lay under metres of soil in France (2017) come to be there.

Unsurprisingly, Richards' characterisation of the Eleventh Doctor is wholly accurate, with his verbal mannerisms and `ticks' (questioning himself with lightening speed and agility) coming to the fore but without becoming too much of a gimmick or annoying to the reader. The Time Lord's quirks are enhanced by Mike Collins' attention to detail; the angular fist, the gangly running gate, and the youthful face that belies millennia of experience.

A riot of colour and printed on a high colour paper, DOCTOR WHO - THE DALEK PROJECT, published by BBC BOOKS (6 September 2012) deservedly requires your immediate attention and admiration, and is a welcome addition to the DOCTOR WHO universe.

And what's next? A cyberman graphic novel that takes the reader to the very genesis of their `birth' (in our universe)?
