Doctor Who: The Dalek Project & A History of the Universe in 100 Objects - Covers & Info

BBC Books have released the covers and synopsis of a new Doctor Who book and graphic novel:

THE DALEK PROJECT - by Justin Richards
A stunning new graphic novel, featuring the Doctor as played by Matt Smith in an exciting adventure with the Daleks.

1917. It’s the height of the Great War and Hellcombe Hall is a house full of mystery: locked doors, forbidden rooms, dustsheets covering guilty secrets, and ghostly noises frightening the servants. Most mysterious of all, the drawing room seems to open directly onto a muddy, corpse-filled trench on the Western Front…

Arriving at this stately home, the Doctor meets Lord Hellcombe, an armaments manufacturer who has a new secret weapon he believes will win the war: he calls it ‘the Dalek’. Soon, the Doctor and his new friends are in a race against time to prevent the entire Western Front from becoming part of the Dalek Project!

Doctor Who: The Dalek Project is on sale from 14th September at all good book and comic stores priced £14.99 per copy.
A HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSE IN 100 OBJECTS - by James Goss & Steve Tribes
Every object tells a story. From ancient urns and medieval flasks to sonic screwdrivers and glass Daleks, these 100 objects tell the story of the entire universe, and the most important man in it: the Doctor. 

Each item has a unique tale of its own, whether it’s a fob watch at the onset of the Great War or a carrot growing on the first human colony on Mars. Taken together, they tell of empires rising and falling, wars won and lost, and planets destroyed and reborn.

Within these pages lie hidden histories of Time Lords and Daleks, the legend of the Loch Ness Monster, the plot to steal the Mona Lisa and the story of Shakespeare’s lost play. You’ll find illustrated guides to invisible creatures, the secret origins of the internet, and how to speak Mechonoid.

A History of the Universe in 100 Objects is an indispensable guide to the most important items that have ever existed, or that are yet to exist.

Doctor Who: A History of the Universe in 100 Objects is on sale from 27th September at all good book stores priced £20.00 per copy.
