Abslom Daak Returns
The Dalek’s second greatest enemy, Doctor Who Magazine’s Abslom Daak, is back in a new CGI feature from Altered Vistas, reports DownTheTubes.
Better known as Abslom Daak – Dalek Killer (coincidentally the title of the previous release), the character was created by Steve Moore for Doctor Who Weekly in 1980, and has since encountered the Doctor several times within Doctor Who Magazine and the Virgin New Adventures novels of the 1990s
This follow up strip to the hugely popular Abslom Daak – Dalek Killer sees the Daleksâ€™ second greatest enemy heading into Draconian space in an attempt to find help for Princess Taiyin. There, he is taken under the wing of Prince Salander, noble of the Draconian royal court, but their association leads them both into a web of intrigue, bribery, corruption and jealousy that will inevitably end in tragedy.
The disc comes packed with bonus features:
* Back-Up – a comprehensive documentary about the Doctor Who Weekly/Doctor Who Monthly back-up strips.
* Landâ€™s End Up Close – an unusual look at the Doctor Who exhibition held at Landâ€™s End in 2008.
* Trailer – a glimpse of the second chapter of Star Tigers to whet your appetite.
The second chapter will be released later this year.
