About the Author

David Whitaker was the first Story Editor for Doctor Who, and was responsible for finding and commissioning writers, and it was Whitaker as much as anyone who defined the narrative shape of Doctor Who. He wrote for the Doctor Who annuals, novelised the first Dalek story and worked with Terry Nation on various Dalek-related material including the hugely successful comic strip The Daleks. David Whitaker died in 1980.

Terry Nation started as a comedy writer and performer, and was approached with an offer to work on Doctor Who, providing the seven episodes of the first ever Dalek story. After inventing the Daleks, Nation moved on to work on The Saint, The Champions and The Avengers. In the 1970s he scripted four more Dalek series - including Genesis of the Daleks which has been voted the best ever story in the series. Nation later devised the hugely popular BBC science fiction series Blake's 7. Terry Nation died in Los Angeles in 1996.

First of all, to answer your question, I think the headless monks, the daleks and the cybermen would do pretty well against the doctor (but they would still fail) And second of all, seriously!? Slithereens!? It's SLITHEENS!!!!

What three Doctor Who critters if you could command them would make the best army? I personally think Cybermen, Weeping Angels, and Daleks. - Phone1811

My favorite alien is the dalek, and this book satisfied me. For you doctor who fans, this is a must!

To be honest, I stopped liking Eleven after the whole food montage in his first full episode. Ten is way better, manic-depressive tendencies, Time Lord Victorious moments, and all! I haven't watched Classic Who, though, so I couldn't say what my opinion on One is/will be.
