Dr. Who - Art Of Destruction
Tarrant On TV
I'm not sure if any or many of you have read this book. For those who haven't, it's a novel featuring David Tennant's Doctor and Rose set in Africa in the 22nd Century.

Africa is depicted similarly to how it is now, struggling with famine, war and exploitation from the West.
I'm not all that well versed on the Who canon, but I thought the Earth was supposed to be ruled by Daleks in this century.
Am I missing something?
Was the timeline reset somehow?

Obviously novels aren't generally considered canon, but it seems odd that they'd ignore something this big.
Overall though, I still enjoyed the book.

Any thoughts?

I remember reading it, but struggled so much to finish it that I wasn't really paying much attention by the end!
Reversing the polarity of the neutron flow. I bet that means something. It sounds great.

I quite enjoyed it, despite a few gripes here and there.
I have a stack of new Who books that I'm working through at the moment. This was the first.

Well in the run up to the Dalek occupation of Earth in the 22nd century, weren't there wars, famine and plague in the attempt to weaken Earth's nations? Many of these were covert Dalek operations which were revealed once the Daleks had achieved their objectives of conquering Earth.

Perhaps this novel is set during these times?

Aha! Possibly.

I've always been a bit confused by how 'Day Of The Daleks' ties in with 'Daleks: Invasion Of Earth'.
When Sir Reginald Styles' house blew up without all the ambassadors inside, I got the impression that the Dalek invasion may have been thwarted, yet how would that affect the timeline of Susan?
 
Spaceship Dispatcher
Well... what evidence is there that the Dalek invasion was actually thwarted? That version of history becomes effectively an alternate timeline, like those seen in Inferno and Rise of the Cybermen, but the Daleks still come and invade. In the 'primary timeline' of the DW universe the Daleks weaken the planet themselves qv TDioE, whereas in the alternate version mankind has already weakened itself through war; but the Dalek invasion is a constant factor in both realities.

It's something I shall have to verse myself on. I've always been a bit confused by it.

Maybe the actions in Day of the Daleks just delayed them by a decade or so.

A bit like Skynet and Judgement Day in the Terminator franchise.
