The Only Good Dalek
As you can see from the cover – freshly released today – it’s a colourful affair, set during the Human-Dalek war.
The Only Good Dalek is an epic tale from Richards, a well known author of childrenâ€™s fiction, and of a good number of Doctor Who books; he’sÂ also Creative Consultant to BBC Books.Â
Meanwhile you may well know Mike Collins work as an illustratorÂ - he is best known for illustrating Doctor Who Magazineâ€™s long running comic strip.
â€˜Station 7 is the most secret establishment in the whole of Earth-Space. Even our own people donâ€™t know it exists. Itâ€™s beyond top secret. Thereâ€™s no way the Daleks can ever find it.â€™
Station 7 is where the Earth Forces send all the equipment captured in their unceasing war against the Daleks.Â Itâ€™s where Dalek technology is analysed and examined. Itâ€™s where the Doctor and Amy have just arrived. But somehow the Daleks have found out about Station 7 â€“ and thereâ€™s something there that they want back.Â
With the Doctor increasingly worried about the direction the Stationâ€™s research is taking, the commander of Station 7 knows he has only one possible, desperate, defence. Because the last terrible secret of Station 7 is that they donâ€™t only store captured Dalek technology. Itâ€™s also a prison. And the only thing that might stop a Dalek is another Dalekâ€¦
An epic, full-colour graphic novel featuring the Doctor and Amy, as played by Matt Smith and Karen Gillan in the spectacular hit series from BBC Television.
