A difficult item to review this: The Future is the final chapter in the 6-part Dalek Empire 3, and as a piece of drama in itself is a return to form after the appalling waste of time that was the previous chapter, with a pitched battle on Velyshaa between the Daleks and the Graxis Wardens, Siy Tarkov, Galanar and Elaria leading to a final confrontation between Galanar and the Dalek Supreme. The final confrontation is a particular delight, with some strong material about the two sides becoming more like each other in order to win the war.
Less satisfying is the shape of Dalek War 3 as a whole, as revealed by this last instalment. The entire series is now revealed as a holding exercise for Dalek Empire 4, with Siy Tarkov's mission to get information on the Daleks back to the Galactic Union being strung out over 6 CDs, while we never get to hear the outcome. A retelling of Power of the Daleks on an epic scale, Dalek Empire 3 is easily the least impressive of the series, being overlong, with a lack of focus, messy scripting, and bland characters. If Dalek Empire 4 ever materialises this may well become essential listening, but as a story on it's own Dalek Empire 3 fails miserably.
