    What would happen if the Daleks tried to influence the outcome of one of the World wars Wait they already tried that It was called Victory of the Daleks The Dalek project presents something very similar, only this time The Doctor s greatest foes are trying to influence the outcome of World War I This graphic novel has it s roots in some of the classic Dalek stories As I said it reminded me of Victory of the Daleks It also gives a nod to Power of the Daleks , as seemingly helpless Daleks convince unsuspecting humans to help them build Daleks under the pretense that it will help win the war The setting of part of the story in a country house is a nod to Evil of the Daleks The story itself, would have felt at home either in the Doctor Who monthly comic, or as part of the comic strip series in Doctor Who magazine Something similar to the Fourth Doctor comic strips, as The Doctor travels on his own without any of the television companions instead he picks up help along the way throughout the course of the story The drama comes from The Doctor having to convince various humans how dangerous the Daleks really are Can humanity see through the Dalek lies and defeat them before humanity is exterminated

    This was fun, but rather derivative and uninspired All in all I was a little disappointed.

    This graphic novel was interesting I really like the style of the drawing, and I liked the style of the story, too The story is not like a hero story, which uses the special power to kill the bad guy This book is about a clever doctor, who used his brilliant mind to solve some problems, find the evidence from old time, and defeat the evil.The book is exciting I saw that the son of professor was killed, but rebuilt into machines by the DALEKs, and the old man in the hall s wife was killed, and the gardeners were killed by the robots too I felt sad about it, and thought the robots are so evil and must be destroyed.The story didn t move on really fast, but I can remember every little bit in the story After reading this book, I can t believe such things happened, and can t believe there are actually such terrible machines which use the weak spot in human s heart, and control the human to work for them But suddenly i thought this might actually happen in real life, too There are some bad friends, who only use people for their purpose, and while you are not as useful as usual, they put you on the side, and never talked to you again So we should read the friend clearly, and not making friends with these kind of people, because we are like tools to them.Also, we shouldn t be the people who use others like they are tools We should be kind to others, and help our friends indeed.And that s what i think about this novel.

    I love Doctor Who And this graphic novel felt so much like the show it was great It has the classic Doctor Who tropes like the witty doctor, courageous self sacrificing companions, near escapes, and of course the Daleks I couldn t give this any lower than 4 stars because it was so well paced and exciting and fun, just because it s small graphic novel doesn t mean it isn t worthy.Book one of the Cram athon complete

    Justin Richards and Mike Collins have created this cool graphic novel The images are clever, well detailed and compelling The bubble text placement works well I enjoy history, and appreciate that there is some non fiction contained in this read This novel is full of action and uses Dr Who s self deprecating humor The Dalek Project is definitely one for the fans of Dr Who.

    Huge Dr Who fan here my son and I just binge watched the final episodes of season 7 as well as The Day of the Doctor I figured since we re due for a regeneration at the beginning of season 8, I should read the graphic novel featuring the Eleventh Doctor Anything with Daleks is sure to catch and keep attention, and we know the whole timey wimey thing can take us anywhere and anywhen Without spoilers I cannot give away the locations and times Let s just say the main action takes place during WWI somewhere in Britain Daleks Big war Gotta stop total annihilation There are time and space portals involved There is death, lots of death we re talking about Daleks Even my fangirl heart can t figure how all the characters kept in the know about all the key events I wanted to mark it , but I have to be okay with Regardless, the comic version of Matt Smith s Doctor is there and up to his winsome ways.

    This is the first Doctor Who novel I ve read although I ve been watching the TV show since the Tom Baker days off and on and I intentionally looked for a book that wasn t a retelling of a TV episode so that I could judge it on it s own merits and I think that this Doctor Who adventure belongs in the Whovian cannon There was a similar story set during WW2 about the Daleks being used to end the war This story in this book is set during WW1 and the war doesn t feature as prominently as it did in the TV show Instead the reader is given four companions all new to this story line and a time travelling manor that is hiding secrets that the Doctor unravels before facing his sworn enemy This concept is used well throughout the story with each door of the manor being a portal to some other place and time giving the doctor and artist ample room to play with the time travelling motif But the action seems to feel a little rushed and I got the sense that the doctor was running around putting out fires until the Daleks appeared instead of using his superior intellect and devious cunning to outwit his foe There was also a lack of the analytical, sciency nature of the doctor with the writer preferring action as a means to drive the narrative I sure would have liked the story better if the doctor would slow down and talk that science mumbo jumble that always make me think twice and the TV show so compelling.The art work though is excellent The rendering of the Daleks including a new Proto Dalek are spot on and the rendering of Matt Smith though not exact is certainly passable Also the mechanic of the portals is used well as the Doctor moves between various locations including a German U boat factory, Dalek space ship and an overgrown jungle garden Every inch of the panel is used throughout the book an the colors are vibrant and eye catching the character detail is also very well done This visual aspect is why I chose the comic medium to expand my Doctor Who experience and the artists and colourists do not disappoint.In the end I knocked a few stars because of the pace of the story too quick and the fact that the Doctor doesn t play to his strengths his intellect but I would recommend this book to Whovians because the story does work and the artwork is top quality.

    Myself being an extreme whovian I had utterly high expectations At first I became truly interested, this graphic novel had a balance of action and adventure and sci fi all in one But It honestly wasn t graphic novel of the year The animation in this graphic novel is amazing, if you get past small issues the wrong eye color, something out of place etc The explosions and colors for the action scenes were great but I thought there were to many explosions As always Doctor Who kept the science fiction perfectly kept together, we even get to see our main character time travel many times in this book The book is perfect even for someone who doesn t watch the show or read the books because everything is explained.I ll be honest though, I don t actually think there ever was a theme or moral Which isn t the usual for something Doctor Who related, when Doctor Who has a theme it really sinks in, here that didn t happen in the slightest It actually annoyed me a bit as I read The symbolism, as always was pretty good Lord Hellecomb, a scientist planning on using a series of dangerous machines to attack the enemy could symbolize a fear so strong that it forces you to do bad yourself, and the Doctor, as always represents the courage and or bravery who stands up to or stops the bad things from happening I really enjoyed this book, but it wasn t perfect What else is there to say It s enjoyable because of the amazing animations and colors, but it s no book of the year.

    return return As with a number of the recent Who novels, this is aimed at a slightly younger readership, with the Doctor s co adventurers being three children rescued from a spaceship by him after their parents death no novel with Clara yet, as far as I know, although she has been on the show since April, or perhaps longer depending how you count I was very interested to note that, like Malorie Blackman s The Ripple Effect published last month, The Dalek Generation presents a situation where the Daleks are perceived as a force for good rather than evil, with the Doctor frustrated in his attempts to warn against them I do wonder if this is a subtle or maybe even unsubtle hint about a storyline we can expect for the two episodes due to air later this year return return That apart, it s quite a different story from Blackman s it s clear to the reader from the first chapter that the Daleks really are evil here, but the story of what they are looking for, and how the Doctor and his traumatised young friends thwart their plans in the face of a wilfully ignorant totalitarian society which won t believe them, is nicely convoluted and also evocative of various previous Who stories If you are happy to adjust for the target readership, it is very enjoyable.

    This Doctor Who graphic novel sees the Doctor comes face to face with the daleks in the middle of the First World War Initially the story is not that dissimilar to the Series 5 TV episode Victory of the Daleks but after a while it does take a different direction as the daleks plan is much bigger than it first appears The daleks are at their manipulative best here and look brilliant, as does every part of the artwork For some reason their speech just doesn t quite work the same in comic form that feeling probably wasn t helped by the fact they do talk quite a lot The Doctor s characterisation isn t great here, probably because it s quite hard to put the long speeches into speech bubbles so they are limited Considering he is really supposed to hate the daleks, for the most part he here he doesn t seem that bothered It has fantastic art and some brilliant dalek moments but the relatively weak plots lets this down a bit For the most part, it s just the same old threat that s easily beaten.
