Customer Review

on 19 June 2009
As other reviewers have noted Trevor Baxendale captures the character of the Doctor as played by David Tennant very well indeed. The novel is full of the best Dalek elements and introduces the idea of the Dalek Inquisitor General (Dalek X), something which could be investigated further in the future. Great pacing and good characterisation for the supporting roles make this a very strong book and I am now looking forward to the CD version read by Nicholas (voice of the Daleks) Briggs later this year.

Set during the Dalek Incursion (possibly at the time of the Big Finish Dalek Empire series) this is truly the Daleks at their best. Scheming, plotting and exterminating just as their creator (by whom I mean Terry Nation) envisaged them so long ago. A true tribute to the most evil beings ever created in the Whoniverse.

As an aside I often wonder why no-one has explored the idea of the Special Weapons Dalek idea featured in Remembrance Of The Daleks. Perhaps this was a creation of the writer Ben Aaronovitch and only he has the rights to it, but it would make a fascinating idea within a future Dalek novel......
