The ultimate collectors’ edition of the classic 1960s strip.

First published in TV Century 21 from 1965 to 1967, The Daleks was devised by Terry Nation and largely written by Doctor Who’s first story editor David Whitaker.

For this collectors’ edition, all 104 instalments have been digitally restored – the vast majority from the original artwork.

The bookazine also includes new features about the writers, illustrators and publishers who created The Daleks, including a detailed interview with artist Ron Turner.

Editor Marcus Hearn says: “This is the fulfilment of a long-held ambition. I loved this strip as a child and now – having seen the stunning restoration by DWM art editor Peri Godbold and her team – I admire it even more. You can’t really say The Daleks has been restored to its former glory, because I think it now looks better than it’s ever looked before.”

The Daleks is on sale at WH Smith, selected supermarkets from Wednesday 11 November priced £9.99 (UK). It’s also available as a digital edition, priced £8.99, from

    Looks like I won’t get one, quite disappointed to be honest. I’ve been checking my local WH Smith’s as I feel relatively Covid secure in there. But they don’t know when/ if it will come in. I’ve missed all the online opportunities.

    If you have this magazine, does it warrant a drive into my city Tesco’s or what?

    I haven’t joined eBay and don’t wish to…

      They have 56 copies still available at the moment (11.30pm). Plenty to go around, assuming they won’t allow scalpers to bulk-buy.
