5.0 out of 5 stars Legacy of the Daleks, 4 April 2013
This review is from: Doctor Who: Legacy of the Daleks (Mass Market Paperback)
War of the Daleks was like Marmite when it was released. You either loved it or hated it and I loved it. Now John Peel is back with another Dalek story, Legacy of the Daleks, in a book which is again is likely to divide fans.

The Doctor goes back to Earth 30 odd years after the events of The Dalek Invasion of Earth in search of Sam. There he finds the human race under populated in a Britain which is divided into Domains and littered with Dalek artifacts and sites. Two of those Domains are clamouring to be top dog, and one side has been gifted the use of Dalek weaponry from the mysterious Estro and instructed to power an old Dalek artefact. The story is very good, and it doesn't try too hard making Legacy of the Daleks a very lightweight and easy to read novel.

Characterizations are OK, with the Doctor reading more like an 8/3/4 hybrid and the 2 returning characters written for very well. The Daleks are a little underused, which if you want a Dalek novel might be a let down but it didn't really bother me that much.

Whilst not as accomplished as War of the Daleks was, Legacy of the Daleks is still an entertaining story from a very good author. Suitable for fans of the TV series and also the casual fan, it is a lightweight adventure which doesn't take a lot of concentration to read and enjoy.
