Review quote

the complete guide to the Daleks - in and out of their casings., This book stands above many Doctor Who reference books, of both the new series and the Classic. Its presentation is aimed perfectly at the younger audience for which it is intended, yet manages to remain interesting in tone for the older audience... an excellent introduction to the Daleks., A highly informative tome on the factors that allow the Daleks to capture the imagination of Doctor Who fans everywhere ranging from the really young right to the old.
