The Daleks' Masterplan is well underway. With the Time Destroyer, the most deadly machine ever devised, they will conquer the Universe. Only one person stands in their way - the Doctor. For he has stolen the precious Taranium core which is vital to activate the machine. Travelling through Time and Space, the Doctor and his companions are forever on the move in case the Daleks track them down. But after several months, to their horror, the TARDIS indicates that they are being followed...This is the second of two novelisations written by John Peel and based on the TV serial "The Daleks' Masterplan". The first book, "Daleks: Mission to the Unknown", is also available from BBC Audiobooks. 'BBC Audiobooks has chosen well with its books and has taken the right approach with its readers...they benefit from new music and sound effects' - "Doctor Who Magazine". Peter Purves and Jean Marsh read this exciting novelisation of a classic "Doctor Who" adventure, with Dalek voices by Nicholas Briggs.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Daleks' Master Plan (part two) 13 July 2010
By Emanon
Format:Audio CD
THE DALEKS' MASTER PLAN was an epic story that unfolded over thirteen episodes (the one part MISSION TO THE UNKNOWN followed - after a gap of four weeks to tell the story of THE MYTH MAKERS - by the twelve part epic that was THE DALEKS' MASTER PLAN itself) and as such was a story rather too epic to be told in one of the slim Target novelisations of the 1970s and 1980s. Wisely then, John Peel split the story into two separate books of which this is the second, and this audio option has followed much the same format. Be warned then, if you buy this rather impressive 5-CD tale, to get the full story you will probably want to invest in PART ONE: MISSION TO THE UNKNOWN at some point.

However it is worth it because this is a very strong retelling of one of the finer epics from the early years of the TV series and the lengthy running time of the original tale means that some very strong characterisations are possible and that the tragedy of the story of Space Security Agent Sara Kingdom and the machinations of the wicked and treacherous Mavic Chen, the Guardian of the Solar System no less, both unfold on a rather epic scale.

This half of the story picks up from the end of the previous volume with a retelling of the events of the first DOCTOR WHO "Special Christmas Episode" - episode 7 of the 12 - which didn't really progress the plot but actually makes for a few chapters of what is a bit of light-hearted fun before the story takes a darker turn as we are returned to the planet Kembel and rejoin the story from where it was left, with the Daleks and their allies now needing to track down a missing vital element which is needed to help complete their "master plan", and the Doctor just happens to have control of it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Story of Two Halves 24 Jun 2014
By Amazon Customer TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This story follows on from one of the best Doctor Who audiobooks I've ever heard, 'Mission to the unknown'.
In that, ( I recommend you listen to that 1st as not only is it superb but it does help explain a lot of what is going on here), the Doctor and his companions are up against the Daleks efforts to control time using something called Taranium which they get from a duplicitous Earth president along with help from a gang of nefarious Galactic rulers all convened on a planet called Kemble.
The Doctor steals the element & he and his chums set off in the TARDIS with the grumpy dustbins in hot pursuit.

This story at first appears to have completely forgotten that plot and as the first hour or two pass it seems the plot is lost all round as we are treated to some of the worst humour and daftest plot elements of any Doctor Who story I've ever heard.
The three hapless heroes stumble from time to time, (including a cringeworthy early movie story which see's the Doctor help Charlie Chaplin come up with a film plot!).
To be honest I came close to giving up altogether at that point as I was pretty miffed at how far things had strayed from the brilliance of the first story.

Things pick up though when everyone turns up in ancient Egypt and when the story finally ends up back on the planet Kemble we are all set for a grandstand finish with the Daleks giving full reign to their nastiness, their 'friends' getting their just desserts and everyone making one last mad dash for the TARDIS.

In the end this concludes really well and very sadly too. It doesn't completely erase the first awful two hours but it does do enough to earn it's four stars and make this worth a listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars A worthy addition to your Doctor Who library! 5 Sep 2012
By Kurt A. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Having foiled the Dalek's master plan by stealing Taranium core that they need for their Time Destructor, the (First) Doctor hopes that it is time for a much deserved rest. Wandering through time and space again, the Doctor and Steven and Sara have some very strange and not entirely serious adventures. However, their fun is finished when the Meddling Monk shows up. Worse, the Daleks have brought out their own time machine and are hot on the Doctor's trail. Whatever the cost, the Doctor is going to have to put an end to this Dalek plan...if he can stay alive long enough!

This is a rather fun audiobook. It's a novelization of the last six episodes of The Daleks' Master Plan. It's a good story, with a lot of fun to it, but also a serious side that will keep you on the edge of your seat to the last.

The audiobook is ably read by Peter Purves, who actually played Steven Taylor opposite William Hartnell, and Jean Marsh, who played Sara Kingdom at that time. It's a great audiobook, and a worthy addition to your Doctor Who library! By the way, I would not listen to this audiobook without listening to the first one.
