This is a really good audio to listen to.!

`Davros' has been an enjoyable listening experience as it's a story where the Doctor faces Davros, without the Daleks! Davros without Daleks! Unheard of! Davros always has Daleks in every story he's in. Lance Parkin, who wrote the Fifth Doctor and Nyssa story `Primeval', writes a really intriguing story exploring Davros as a character inside and out, going deeper into what he's thinking as a villain and whether he has anything left in him to redeem himself. It's a fascinating tale and one I've enjoyed immensely.

The story is part of a multi-Doctor `villains' trilogy to celebrate 40 years of `Doctor Who' back in 2003 including Omega, Davros and the Master. This second story of this trilogy stars Colin Baker as the Sixth Doctor in another confrontation with Terry Molloy as Davros. It's great to listen to a story where the two actors are reunited after so long. The story also guest stars Wendy Padbury and Bernard Horsfall who are also reunited after so long since the Patrick Troughton days doing `The Mind Robber' and `The War Games'. I've had great pleasure of having my CD signed by Colin, Terry and Wendy at the same time at a convention recently in Weston-super-Mare this July!

In the story of `Davros', it follows on after the Kaled scientist was seemingly killed in 'Resurrection of the Daleks'. But Davros has been found and is revived on a planet run by the head of an Earth corporation called TAI (TransAllied, Inc). The Doctor comes to the planet and discovers what Arnold Baynes and her wife Lorraine are doing to revive Davros and insists they don't trust him.

Format: Audio CD
Having dominated the Daleks in every TV story since he was introduced Big Finish had ignored the character of Davros to concentrate on the Daleks themselves for several audio releases. For this play Davros finally returns - without the Daleks for the first time - as he is revived from suspended animation to work for a the unscrupulous TAI corporation, where he is partnered by the extremely reluctant 6th Doctor, who is entirely unconvinced by Davros' claim to have reformed his character.
The basic plot of this story is fairly basic and predictable - like the Doctor we know full well that Davros will hatch some plan to kill everyone and take over - but what makes it is the execution and the concentration on Davros' character. Terry Molloy returns to give his best ever performance as Davros, utterly dominating the story and upstaging even the magnificent Colin Baker. Thanks to numerous flashback we also learn masses of backstory on Davros, including before he was crippled and the true story behind the creation of the Daleks. At first these background details, complete with an almost romance with another Kaled scientist seem to be humanising Davros, but the final twist as to the nature of his past actions only serve to end up making the character seeming even more evil than before.
The supporting cast are excellent, particularly Bernard Horsfall as the morally ambiguous corporate executive trying to gain from Davros' knowledge, and ex-companion Wendy Padbury, here playing a historian apologist for Davros past actions, who is ultimately confronted with the true horror of his evil.
One could be picky about a few less than convincing moments, such as the odd overly melodramatic line ("He'll take out you eyeballs and then come back for the sockets!
