Doctor Who: Dalek

The Astounding Untold History of the Greatest Enemies of the Universe




A lavish, richly illustrated 'biography' of the Doctor's deadliest foes, this is the ultimate celebration of all things Dalek

Dalek is the never-before-told history of the Doctor's most dangerous enemies, the famous ‘Outer Space Robot People’ of the planet Skaro - from their genesis in the thousand-year conflict between Thals and Kaleds, to their survival of the Time War and (as foreseen by the Time Lords) their conquest of the universe. Along the way, the authors also reveal all-new stories about these legendary creatures - terrifying near-mythical adventures, startling visual recreations of never-before-seen conflicts, and more. Each of them helps shed new light on what has become the most feared alien race in the universe.

With full-colour illustrations, concept art, cutaways, diagrams, comic strips and more, Dalek is a dramatic retelling of the ascent of the 'supreme race', and the story of the mysteries that lurk in unexplored corners of the universe. It is the ultimate celebration of all things Dalek.
