In December 1963, a seven-part serial called “The Daleks” appeared on British television — catapulting the offbeat new series Doctor Who to instant international fame. Through the years, the Daleks — half-robot, half-organic, totally evil beings — have returned again and again to firmly establish themselves as the Doctor’s greatest foes. Now, for the first time, Terry Nation, creator of the Daleks, has teamed with John Peel to tell the complete story of the Daleks. This superb volume includes:
- A complete episode guide to the Dalek television stories, movies, and stage plays, including full credits, detailed story synopses, and behind-the-scenes information and anecdotes.
- A history of the Daleks, recounting in chronological order the complete story of their creation on the planet Skaro, their many campaigns for universal rule, and their eventual destruction — perhaps.
- ”The Survivors”, the never-before-published original story outline that became, with much rewriting, the first Dalek story — plus a synopsis of “The Destroyers”, the never-filmed pilot story for an American Daleks TV series.
- Information on the Dalek books, records and comic strips — plus dozens of photos, drawings, and promotional materials, many of them rare and selected from Terry Nation’s private collection.
