The Daleks are back. This story features the Copper and Bronze Daleks from the RTD era and in my view that is a good thing, as I can't help but feel that the new Paradigm has been a bit of a mistake. But not just those, we even get a quasimodo Dalek (and once you've seen it, I'm sure you will agree on the name) and hords of so-called Proto Daleks, which are robotic versions of a Dalek (no Squid type lifeform inside). All a recipe for an enjoyable read, as the Daleks have ensured both parties in the First world War Conflict produce these proto Daleks.
There are actually two plotlines, one taking place in 2017 and another in 1917 (during the Great War). It's Doctor Who, so the future plotline takes place before the main story occurring in 1917. I remembered another kind of "Dalek Project" in the serial "the evil of the Daleks" from 1966. In this serial events took place in 1966 and 1866. No similarities otherwise, but still I like it very much when writers know their Who history and add such details like exactly a century in-between as an extra bonus for the long-time fans, while not distracting from the story for new comers.
The Doctor is executed very well here, characterised as Matt Smith had shown him to be in the series, so that is great. The Daleks are also done very well (besides the fact that I like them better in this version) here. There are also some nice other characters involved. I must say I also very much enjoyed the drawings and colours. Nice faces, expressions on the faces and, truly wonderful Daleks!
Another great thing is shown too: if the Daleks would truly have no organic living core inside of them, time lords would be able to manipulate them far too easily. And that's the most spoilery remark I am going to put in this review. For the rest I would advise all fans of the Daleks, and Doctor Who in general, to just go and read it! Highly recommended.
