Part one of a new four part audio series charting the early life of Davros before his creation of the Daleks, 'Innocence' focuses on Davros' family, and in particular the ruthless political machinations of his mother Lady Calcula. The play focuses more on character than on science fiction concepts, but while the plot occasionally seems a little languid ultimately a strong theme concerning the relationship between children and parents emerges, both with Davros and his tutor Magrantine. While not brilliant this is still a good strong start to this series, just be aware that due to Davros being played as a young man Terry Molloy is virtually absent in this installment.

Positive.
1)Terry Molloy who is more of a narrator in this opening adventure gives a chilling synopsis on his early years as were hear a 16 yr old Davros slowing becoming more insane & obsessive in his quest to create the ultimate weapon in the Thal/Kaled war.
2)A great chilling script by Gary Hopkins whos script deals with dark issues that makes this mini series tone more suitable for a more mature audience.
3)Rory Jennings is excellent as a young Davros.
4)Some truly shocking & disturbing scenes may give some listeners nightmares.

Negative.
The mature tone & at times graphic nature of the material may put off more sensitive listener's.

Trivia.

1)Rory Jennings was in NuWho Series 2 episode The Idiot's Lantern as Tommy.
2)Richard Franklin plays Davros Father? Colonel Nasgard is better known in the Third Doctor's era as Captain Mike Yates.

1 CD Running time 75 minutes, Trailer.

Review.
These event's take place between Revelation of the Daleks & Bif Finishes The Juggernauts.

The planet Skaro is at war with two rival factions determined to wipe out the other.

The Thals & The Kaleds have fought for generations for reasons long forgotten how or who started this long & bloody war but one side is determined to end it by any means necessary.

Born into a influential family a young 16 year old Davros decides against following his father wishes into becoming a soldier in the Military who instead Davros devotes his time to science who is quickly noticed by his mentor as being a gifted genius.

The story of Dvros as an audio play? 'Genesis of the Daleks' is one of my favourite Dr Who stories from childhood and one of the few I can say has really stood the test of time, so I thought this one had to be worth the cost of its download. Boy, was I not disappointed.

'Innocence' opens what could be as many as fifty years before the events of 'Genesis of the Daleks'. The war between the Kaled and Thal peoples on Skaro has not yet totally poisoned the planet but that process is well underway. Sixteen year old Davros is being pulled in opposite directions by the demands of his parents. His father Colonel Nasgard is insistant on his son following a military career, whereas his mother, the well-named Lady Calcula, has him down as a scientist in the making. And young Davros? Well, at first he seems quite happy at the family villa by Drammankin Lake studying the water life. Against a background of political intrigue and explosive (literally) personal and family revalations we see the beginnings of the journey from arrogant teenager to murderously insane genius.

Overall, this is play is a well produced 77 minutes worth of drama. Diehard Whovians will enjoy the backstory - for example neither the Kaled nor Thal cities is covered by a protective dome and nuclear weapons have not yet been extensively used. Drammankin Lake is not the nest of icky things it will become in time for the First Doctor's visit five hundred years later.

Some of the dialogue is quite creepily disturbing - especially that between Davros and his tutor Magrantine. As Davros' personality slides further and further along the sociopathic spectrum, he starts to take an unhealthy interest in his tutor's experiments on the effect of nuclear radiation on Skarosian lifeforms...

I think the first Play in this series is very strong indeed. The characters and situation are set up nicely with Rory Jenning's chilling portrayal being an inspired choice of the young Davros.
And despite the title, Davros is far from innocent but he does show glimmers of humanity. His best friend, Reston can sometimes bring him down to earth (or should that be Skaro?). Despite his differences with Yarvell, there are hints of sibbling closeness. Of course, he is a Mummy's boy, but the revelation over his father probably didn't do him any favours in the end. Over the course of the series, it is interesting to see these traces of humanity slowly slip away.
The entire cast is magnificent, with Megratine, the Supremo and Nasgard all adding gravitas to the proceedings.
And when Davros shows a Clam thingy to the disgusted Yarvell: "It is a living creature encased inside a protective shell." I wonder what that idea will ultimately evolve into..?
