Dalek: The Astounding Untold History of the Enemies of the Universe

dalek.jpg ? On Order £35.00

Release Date 26 October 2017

Category: Doctor Who Reference Books

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.

Lethbridge-Stewart: Quiz Book

LS_Quiz_Book.jpg ? On Order £8.99

Release Date 31 October 2017

Category: Lethbridge-Stewart Novels and Audios

Mark Jones, author of the recent Lethbridge-Stewart free story United in Blood, says: “When Candy Jar asked me to compile The Lethbridge-Stewart Quiz Book I couldn’t wait to get started. The Brigadier is a character that meant a great deal to me and it gave me the chance to watch the UNIT stories over again.”

 

Like the classic Doctor Who Quiz Books of the 1980s, The Lethbridge-Stewart Quiz Book features over 750 questions on the UNIT era of Doctor Who and beyond. For instance:

 

• In the television story The Time Monster what was TOMTIT?

• Who is attempting to penetrate the Earth’s crust in Inferno?

• What relation is James Lethbridge-Stewart to the Brigadier?

• What does UNIT stand for?

 

Shaun Russell, head of publishing at Candy Jar, is excited about the book. “I remember a trip to Lyme Regis as a boy where I found a copy of the first Doctor Who Quiz Book. For some reason my local WHSmith did not have this book, which made the discovery even more exciting. I don’t think my sister appreciated it though. Asking me questions on the beach about Doctor Who was not her idea of fun.”

 

Mark is revisiting this classic formula, with twelve separate sections dedicated to the adventures of Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart. He says: “There’s something for everyone and it’s a book that will provide hours of entertainment and a challenge to the old grey matter. It’s a book for dipping into whenever you feel like challenging yourself or your friends – hopefully without too many arguments.”
