The Doctor must prevent the Daleks manipulating the Great War's Western Front to destroy Humankind.
The Present: An archaeological dig in Northern France hopes to unearth the remains of a Bronze Age chieftain. But Professor Todd and her team find something much more recent, and much more dangerous – a crashed Dalek spaceship. The Doctor knows how the ship crashed – because he was there... But can he defeat an enemy that just keeps coming back from the dead? 1917: The Great War is at its fiercest. Hellcombe Hall is a house full of mystery: there are locked doors and forbidden rooms, dustsheets cover guilty secrets, the maid Mary Carter is scared of ghosts. And 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. He 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 prevent the entire Western Front of World War One from becoming part of the Dalek Project. A stunning new Graphic Novel from BBC Books, featuring the Doctor as played by Matt Smith in the hit series from BBC Television
