4.0 out of 5 stars Too short 30 April 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As the title of my review says, I feel this and the others in the Fourth Doctor series are way too short.

While this series of Fourth Doctor plays are wonderful and evoke memories of the late 70s in my mind, they are just too fast, and over far too quickly. I don't know why they've made them so short, but it's in danger of spoiling my enjoyment of the series. On TV in 1977 you had character development over the 4-6 episodes. Yes there were the odd 2 parters, but they were with a very small cast and certainly didn't involve lots of locations and running around.

Take this Dalek tale for example - it is truly wonderful, and as has been said in another review, the Daleks have just the right amount of menace and panic... but just as you get into it, it's over. I find this with the TV version since 2005 too... 45 minutes does "Doctor Who" no justice whatsoever, likewise Tom really needs more than a hour per story.

It's that which has forced me to only give this 4 stars rather than the 5.

4.0 out of 5 stars Leela meets the Daleks! 18 Aug 2014
Format:Audio CD
The Daleks are back! Tom Baker's Doctor fights them again!

I was excited by the announcement of these new Fourth Doctor adventures from Big Finish. I was equally excited when discovering in the first season with Leela, the Doctor would be facing the Daleks again. This is a real treat as it wouldn't be worth Tom Baker's return to `Doctor Who' in Big Finish without facing the Daleks again. Also this is the first time Leela gets to meet the Daleks, and I was really looking forward to listening to this audio adventure where the Doctor and Leela face the Daleks in the same adventure.

Of course Tom Baker's Doctor has already met the Daleks before on TV in the stories 'Genesis of the Daleks' and 'Destiny of the Daleks'. `Genesis of the Daleks' is a classic story and one of my favourites from the Tom Baker era. Although the Doctor faced the Daleks with their creator Davros in both stories, so it was refreshing to have the Daleks on their own and with their owns plan at their cunning and evil best. This was the first story Tom Baker recorded for Big Finish as the Doctor and it's a cracking good one.

This is a two-part story by Nicholas Briggs who writes, directs and does the voices of the Daleks at the same time. Even for two episodes it kept me hooked all the way through as it's an exciting romp of an adventure with the Doctor and Leela..

The story is about the Doctor taking to Leela to Earth in the TARDIS where he hopes they'll end up in London in the year 2015. But instead they end up in London, 2025.

5.0 out of 5 stars Energy of the Daleks 23 Mar 2013
By Keen Reader TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The only downside of this story is that it's only two episodes on one cd! Come on, we want more Fourth Doctor full-length stories. Just as Tom Baker gets into his stride, we find the story has ended.

Otherwise, this is a great Dalek story - the Daleks are out to destroy the human race (no surprise there) and the Doctor and Leela are determined to stop them (no surprise there either!). The Doctor and Leela land in London at the time of a global energy crisis - the company that promises a resolution by taking energy from the Moon is about to start their testing. But the Daleks are watching, and using the opportunity to take their own revenge on the human race. But can their greatest enemy stop them in time!?

Tom Baker and Louise Jameson are, as always, in top form - they really do just sound like they did in the tv series. Great stuff - but can we please have longer stories!?

Positive.
Great story by Nicholas Briggs whom writes, Directs & voices the Daleks.
Tom Baker gives a magnetic performance as the Fourth Doctor, Oh why didn't you do these audio adventures years ago Tom?

Negative.
The running time hampers the plot & it's structure due to having it's plot crammed into the 2 episodes of a 60 minutes running time.

Trivia.
Mark Benton appeared as Clive in NuWho debut series 1 episode Rose.
This was Tom Bakers first story to be recorded for Big Finish but the fourth to be released in Series 1 of the Fourth Doctor adventures.
Dan Starkey plays Kevin Winston is Sontaran warrior Strax in series 6 & 7 of Matt Smiths Eleventh Doctor era.
Writer/Actor John Dorney plays a Robomen.

Review.
The Doctor & Leela arrive in the Tardis in London 2025 in a time were there is protesting against Global Sphere Corporation's plans to test it's equipment by using solar panels on the moon reflected back by a satellite on the National Gallery back to earth as power from the moon may help stop the energy crisis thats bringing the world to the brink of global disaster.

The Doctor however suspects something untoward is going on having traced an energy signal nearby.

The Doctor's oldest enemy's are watching, Waiting to wage war on planet earth wiping out the entire human race once & for all.

The Daleks are back.

Can the Doctor find a solution to the energy crisis & foil the Daleks Master plan & evade the Daleks Robomen or will the Daleks plan take effect in waging war on the obliteration of all life on planet earth.
