For the first time, the never-before-told history of the Doctor’s most dangerous enemy, the Daleks, from their genesis thousands of years ago to their conquest of the universe. Doctor Who: Dalek, is the one and only volume devoted solely to the history of the Doctor’s greatest enemy. The Daleks, with their watchword cry "Exterminate!", are a race of cyborg aliens single-mindedly determined to conquer the universe and end all life forms they consider inferior. First appearing on Doctor Who in 1963, the Daleks are among the show’s most popular villains. Reminiscent of human-sized pepper shakers, the external mechanical casing of the Dalek protects a soft, repulsive creature whose electronic voice is reduced to a squeak when outside of its shell. Doctor Who: Dalek chronicles the Daleks’ genesis through the Time War and their ongoing conquest of the universe. Here are never-before-told stories about these legendary creatures—including terrifying near-mythical adventures, startling visual recreations of secret conflicts, and more. Each story sheds new light on what has become the most feared alien race in the universe. With a foreword by showrunner Steven Moffat, full-color illustrations, concept art, cutaways, diagrams, comic strips and more, Doctor Who: Dalek is the ultimate celebration of all things Dalek and a must have for devoted Whovians of every age.

Doctor Who was voted in 1998 as the most popular drama series ever produced by the BBC, a result which shocked its critics and embarrassed the corporation which had cancelled the 35-year-old series nearly ten years before. In its time it enjoyed enormous popularity and was sold to 87 different countries. Today it retains a hugely loyal cult following, even amongst children who are too young to remember Saturday teatimes before the age of the home video.

Doctor Who: A British Alien?

Author: Danny Nicol

Publisher: Springer

ISBN: 3319658344

Category: Performing Arts

Page: 291

View: 4696

This book argues that Doctor Who, the world’s longest-running science fiction series often considered to be about distant planets and monsters, is in reality just as much about Britain and Britishness. Danny Nicol explores how the show, through science fiction allegory and metaphor, constructs national identity in an era in which identities are precarious, ambivalent, transient and elusive. It argues that Doctor Who’s projection of Britishness is not merely descriptive but normative—putting forward a vision of what the British ought to be. The book interrogates the substance of Doctor Who’s Britishness in terms of individualism, entrepreneurship, public service, class, gender, race and sexuality. It analyses the show’s response to the pressures on British identity wrought by devolution and separatist currents in Scotland and Wales, globalisation, foreign policy adventures and the unrelenting rise of the transnational corporation.

The planet Gallifrey. The Shining World of the Seven Systems. Often to be found in the constellation of Kasterborous. Birthplace of one of the oldest civilizations in the universe: The Time Lords. From their technologies and strategies to the renegades like the Master and the Doctor himself, this is the definitive guide to the oldest and most powerful civilization in the universe. They invented black holes, transmits, stellar manipulators, and they atrophied. A bunch of elderly academics in funny hats, the Time Lords watched the whole history of creation. This was the civilization that inflicted some of its most renowned and deadly renegades and criminals on the universe: the Master, the Rani, the Monk, the War Chief, yet it was also the benevolent power that rid the cosmos of the Great Vampires, the Racnoss and the Fendahl.

Doctor Who: Now We Are Six Hundred

A Collection of Time Lord Verse

Publisher: HarperCollins

ISBN: 0062685406

Category: Performing Arts

Page: N.A

View: 2298

With illustrations by Russell T Davies, original showrunner of the new-era Doctor Who, the first ever Doctor Who poetry collection—a charming, funny and whimsical illustrated collection of verse that celebrates the joys and pitfalls of getting older . . . Time-Lord older. Like many of us, the older they get, the more Time Lords realize how little they understand the universe around them. This delightful collection of poems—the first volume of Doctor Who verse published—offers moments of insight, wit, and reassurance for the maturing inhabitants of Gallifrey (and everywhere else), including such delights as: THE END When I was One I was not much fun When I was Two I was barely through When I was Three I liked strong tea When I was Four I hated a bore When I was Five I was really alive When I was Six I somehow could never quite fit in to what was expected of me, well, not exactly but that was because things weren’t neat and there are no easy rhymes in the universe and scansion, my dear Peri, is a thing that’s really overrated and you only have to look at a sunset to realise that creation itself is a poem and oh no wait, got it, of course, Fix! The line needed to end with Fix! (Or tricks. That’s works too.) When I was Seven I sent the gods to Heaven When I was Eight Kissing was great When I was Nine I had forgotten time When I was Ten I began again When I was Eleven I totally got even When I was Twelve, I became as clever as clever And now I think I’ll be Twelve for ever and ever* (*Unless, of course, there is a terrible catastrophe involving explosions, radiation, or heights. And then I guess we’ll find out what comes next. But the eyebrows won’t be as good.)
