BBC Books have now revealed the cover and synopsis for their first Doctor Who graphic novel, The Dalek Project. The new graphic novel is written by Justin Richards and is illustrated by Mike Collins who has previously worked on Doctor Who Magazine. The Dalek Project also includes an introduction by Doctor Who lead writer, Russell T Davies. You can read the synopsis for the new book below:
1917: The Great War is at its fiercest and most terrible. But things are about to get even worse… When the Doctor arrives at Hellcombe Hall in England he discovers a house full of mystery. There are locked doors and forbidden rooms, dustsheets cover guilty secrets, the maid Mary Carter is scared of the ghosts... And that’s before Corporal Anderson finds that his muddy corpse-filled trench ends in the drawing room.
Armaments manufacturer Lord Hellcombe has a new secret weapon he believes will win the war. But when the Doctor witnesses the final demonstration he begins to realise how much danger everyone is in. Because Lord Hellcome claims to have invented the Dalek. Except, of course, that nothing is quite what it seems.
The Doctor and his new friends must draw on every type of early 20th century technology and every element of human ingenuity and bravery if they are to discover the truth and to survive. If they are to prevent the entire Western Front of World War One from becoming part of The Dalek Project.
The Dalek Project will be released on the 24th of September and will be sold at the RRP of £14.99. Will you be buying this graphic novel?
