The Dalek Chronicles: A Doctor Who Magazine Summer Special was the official title of the Marvel UK reprint of TV Century 21's 104-part comic epic, The Daleks. The reprinting tried to remain faithful to the original by prefacing the strips with what appeared to be a newspaper ripped from the 21st century. The comics themselves were thus the "stories behind the headlines".

Although Doctor Who Magazine had printed occasional segments of The Daleks from its very earliest issues, this magazine was the first occasion on which the entire TV Century 21 run had been reprinted.

The work is often considered a stand-alone graphic novel. However, unlike The Age of Chaos, Dalek Chronicles is, by indicia if not by common wisdom, the second DWM "Summer Special" of 1994.
