The Dalek Project - Cover & Info

The cover and synopsis of an upcoming graphic novel by BBC Books have been released. The book is called 'The Dalek Project' and is their first graphic novel. In it, the Tenth Doctor comes face-to-face with the Daleks during the First World War. 'The Dalek Project' is written by Justin Richards and illustrated by Mike Collins.

Here's what Justin Richards said about the book, "At BBC Books, we're all very excited about publishing our first graphic novel. We're been keen to move into this area for a long time, and it's taken a lot of planning and preparation. Mike Collins' artwork, as readers of his DWM comic strips already know, is so stunning that it's been a real challenge to come up with a script that will do his work - and the Doctor himself - justice. The graphic novel format lends itself to storytelling on an epic scale - so expect to see the Daleks at their most cunning and awesome, and the Doctor at his most brilliant and heroic."

The Dalek Project - by Justin Richards "1917: The Great War is at its fiercest and most terrible. But things are about to get even worse… When the Doctor arrives at Hellcombe Hall in England he discovers a house full of mystery. There are locked doors and forbidden rooms, dustsheets cover guilty secrets, the maid Mary Carter is scared of the ghosts... And that’s before Corporal Anderson finds that his muddy corpse-filled trench ends in the drawing room. Armaments manufacturer Lord Hellcombe has a new secret weapon he believes will win the war. But when the Doctor witnesses the final demonstration he begins to realise how much danger everyone is in. Because Lord Hellcome claims to have invented the Dalek. Except, of course, that nothing is quite what it seems. The Doctor and his new friends must draw on every type of early 20th century technology and every element of human ingenuity and bravery if they are to discover the truth and to survive. If they are to prevent the entire Western Front of World War One from becoming part of The Dalek Project."

'The Dalek Project' graphic novel is released September 24th 2009 for £14.99.

'Children Of Earth' Trailer

The trailer for Series 3 of Torchwood: 'Children of Earth' has been released and is now available to watch on the official BBC Torchwood website. In the trailer children across the world have "stopped" and can be heard chanting, "We are coming", which seems to be this series' slogan. Also, there is a very quick glimpse of a brand-new monster/villain creation, presumably from Neil Gorton and his team at Millennium FX and a big explosion (which some of you may already know about, but I won't explain for 'spoilerific' reasons).
You can view the trailer below below (unforfunately this is only available to residents of Britain):

What do you think of this trailer? How excited about 'Children of Earth' are you?
