Fourth and final entry in a series of four audio plays which tell the story of davros, the creator of the daleks, first seen in the doctor who story genesis of the daleks.
Davros as this story opens is almost the being we met on tv in that story. He falls into the hands of enemies, and is rescued by soldiers lead by lieutenant nyder. Another character who also appeared in genesis of the daleks. The latter has peter miles reprise his role as the character, and he doesn't sound a bit different despite a gap of over thirty years.
Nyder believes in what davros is trying to do to save his people. The politicans don't because davros' scheme has no place for concepts such as morality. But with nyder by his side, can anyone stand in his way?
Strong stuff, and if this had been on tv in 1975 it would have probably gotten a few complaints for how graphic it is. But just like the others in the series, it is also completely gripping drama, and the actors involved are superb. It also poses a few moral questions that will make you think for a while, as all good drama should do.
A great end to a great audio series
