The Only Good Dalek

... is the first original Doctor Who graphic novel from BBC Books.

... is a Base Under Siege, then thanks to escape pods becomes a chase, then another Base Under Siege. It could have done with one less plot twist, and more/any laughs.

(Look away if you want to avoid spoilers, as this refers to the main point of the thing... although I think it’s spelled out on publicity blurb.)

And it’s about the (im)possibility of good Daleks, and despite a big wodge of continuity references at no point does anyone mention Dalek Sec, Dalek Caan, Van Statten’s prisoner, the Daleks with the Human Factor from the mid 60s...
