The Dalek Project Graphic Novel

Doctor Who The Dalek Project

By Justin Richards

1917: The Great War is at its fiercest and most terrible.

But things are about to get even worse.

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 realize how much danger everyone is in: Lord Hellcombe claims to have invented the Dalek! Except, of course, that nothing is quite what it seems.

Now, 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 survive – to prevent the entire Western Front of World War One from becoming part of The Dalek Project!

      Is the art good?

    • That Dinosaur over there

      September 9th, 2012 - 10:58am

      Yes, it’s very good.

      The story’s quite alright too. Not as good as The Only Good Dalek, but still quite strong. πŸ™‚

  • Give me a Dalek any day

    August 31st, 2012 - 8:09am

    Nope! Definitely out next Thursday now! πŸ˜€

    This sounds very much like a “what if” version of Victory of the Daleks.

  • Give me a Dalek any day

    July 26th, 2012 - 4:06pm

    The latest DWM claims this is being released 6th September. However, Amazon still have it listed for 26th September. πŸ˜•

    This has Time War Daleks… Asylum of the Daleks has Time War Daleks… the Anti-Time Device ad thing has Time War Daleks… TIME WAR DALEKS, MAKING A COMEBACK!!!!!

    • McGann is The Doctor.

      That is the correct term for them, but you can also call them “Bronze Daleks”.

      I like the design, and am more fond of it than EVER now that I’ve been annoyed at how pathetic and unthreatening the colourful design is.

  • McGann is The Doctor.

    June 30th, 2012 - 11:25pm

    It will be nice to have a GOOD Dalek story for once.

    Ofcourse, the season opener is a Dalek story but it’s too early for me to say if it will be good or not. I reckon it will be called “Tomb of the Daleks”. πŸ˜‰

    • Esterath

      July 2nd, 2012 - 1:39pm

      You do know it’s been confirmed as ‘Asylum of the Daleks’?

    • McGann is The Doctor.

      July 23rd, 2012 - 6:16pm

      I found out afew weeks ago, yes. I was pretty close, but never expected it to be ASYLUM of the Daleks.

      These must (possibly) be Daleks that have been defeated and imprisoned while alive, but who could do such a thing ? ❗ I’m intrigued

    I am so pleased. Been waiting for this ever since the Dalek Handbook cane out, and read about it. Yes, originally envisaged as a 10th doctor story. And I am so glad the big plastic doll Daleks aren’t going to be in it, but Time War ones. But variants from the classic series would have suited as well. Great, great, great. That was the in my view truly horrific thing with the only good dalek: a story with lots of things from classic stories (think of for example the ogrons) but with these new daleks. That just didn’t fit very wel.

    hasn’t anyone realized it’s victory of the daleks with a few changes.

      See my comment earlier. πŸ™‚

    whens it out because i have the only good dalek

    • Bazinga

      June 28th, 2012 - 5:04pm

      September, I think?

    • Give me a Dalek any day

      June 28th, 2012 - 5:27pm

      Yes, it’s released 26th September. πŸ™‚

    It would be interesting to see what the Time War Daleks are doing alive

  • jacondanjake

    June 28th, 2012 - 2:29am

    So they are releasing this. I saw an ad in a tenth doctor nsa only in that it showed the tenth doctor on the cover. Nice to see it come out. (By the way I’m doctorwhofan27 with a new email and name.)

    June 27th, 2012 - 8:20pm

    Looks quite cool. I may get this. Aren’t Amy and Rory in this though?

    • Commander Strax

      June 28th, 2012 - 6:04pm

      i dont think so

  • Jason doctorwhoone

    June 27th, 2012 - 7:20pm

    Only problem I have with this is it should have the red Drone Daleks, instead it features the Time War Daleks, and there are ment to be no more of those ones.

    • Bazinga

      June 27th, 2012 - 7:23pm

      Maybe this is before the Paradigm were ‘progenitored’?

    • Boodleoo

      June 27th, 2012 - 7:50pm

      Maybe but then why wouldn’t the doctor make a reference to the situation in victory of the daleks if it was before I mean. Loving the name by the way Bazinga.

    • Bazinga

      June 27th, 2012 - 7:51pm

      Thanks, it’s from The Big Bang Theory!

    • Give me a Dalek any day

      June 27th, 2012 - 8:10pm

      I have a feeling this will tie in slighlty with Asylum of the Daleks considering the fact the book will be released shortly after the episode airs. πŸ™‚

    • Dalek Sec

      June 28th, 2012 - 8:52am

      Well this comic was going to be published until “Victory of the Daleks” came, so being set in WWI with a scientist claiming he invented the Daleks was too similar. But then again why does the Doctor meet the Daleks in order, being a time traveller? Or these Daleks could just been other survivors of the Time War. Anyway what ever it is i look forward to reading it.

    • Boodleoo

      June 28th, 2012 - 10:39pm

      Thats why I like your name Bazinga :). And Dalek sec that might be the case. Let’s hope it’s not too similar and it turns out the inventors a robot who’s actually a bomb :S.

    • GreenAnchorRedWaterfall

      July 27th, 2012 - 6:04pm

      I will not be buying this if it’s like Victory of the Daleks, because I hated that episode.

    • Give me a Dalek any day

      July 27th, 2012 - 6:48pm

      What?? I loved Victory!!! πŸ˜€ I assume I’m in the minority of people who actually liked that episode. πŸ˜‰

  • Esterath

    June 27th, 2012 - 7:18pm

    This looks AMAZING! Can’t wait for it, I loved The Only Good Dalek so The Dalek Project will be great!

  • DoctorWho4Eva

    June 27th, 2012 - 5:29pm

    I probably won’t get it. I’ll just watch Victory of the Daleks or read “The Only Good Dalek” instead.

  • gary

    June 27th, 2012 - 4:14pm

    OMG this was ment to come out in Tennant’s last year but it was too similar to Victory of the Daleks so they have obviously postponed it nd changed it to suit Matt Smith! I remembered it last week and was looking into it so it’s great to see it is coming out!!

    • Commander Strax

      June 27th, 2012 - 5:46pm

      i read that in a book about daleks. Its the same title!!

  • the TARDIS

    June 27th, 2012 - 4:05pm

    Looking forward to this, digging out my copy of the Only Good Dalek! Although it does seem like Victory of the Daleks only in WWI. And without the Jelly Babies Daleks.

    • Give me a Dalek any day

      June 27th, 2012 - 4:18pm

      I love The Only Good Dalek! Such wonderful memories of reading it during the bitter cold of Christmas 2010. πŸ™‚ I must get my copy out as well. πŸ˜‰

  • pupbenny

    June 27th, 2012 - 3:47pm

    What the? This is just Victory of the Daleks in WWI instead of II. πŸ˜›

    • doctor fan5

      June 27th, 2012 - 4:01pm

      your right its just a different story to it!

    • Give me a Dalek any day

      June 27th, 2012 - 4:10pm

      This was orginally meant to be a Tenth Doctor story released in 2009, but it was cancelled most likely because of it’s similarities to Victory of the Daleks. πŸ™‚ I’m glad it’s being released for the Eleventh Doctor though. It wouldn’t surprise me if there was a reference to Victory of the Daleks. πŸ™‚

    • stewie

      July 10th, 2012 - 7:48am

      didn’t they release one called the dalek project

    • stewie

      July 10th, 2012 - 7:49am

      featuring THE 10TH DOCTOR!!!

  • Give me a Dalek any day

    June 27th, 2012 - 3:19pm

    So this is being done for the Eleventh Doctor now? Awesome! πŸ˜€

    Hurry up 26th September!!! πŸ˜€

  • Tardis’nt

    June 27th, 2012 - 3:04pm

    I was actually going to write a story called the dalek project that follows on to genisis. this sounds too simiilar to victory of the daleks.


    June 27th, 2012 - 2:18pm

    What’s this? Have they redone for 11 instead of 10? And is it actually gonna be released this time? Stay tuned………………

  • sausageroll

    January 30th, 2011 - 8:22am

    Whatever happened to this? I was quite looking forward to it.

    i would say the canceled it so they could adapt it into series 5 episode (victory of the daleks)
