This review is from: Plague of the Daleks (Doctor Who) (Audio CD)The Doctor and Nyssa arrive in Stockbridge and are confronted by strange climate and technological phenomena... and Daleks.
The first two episodes are pretty dull, even though we have zombies lurching around. The story just plods along at a slow pace making me wonder wether I should have some coffee to wake up.
Then at the end of part 2 we get a Dalek. Yay!!
The rest of the story is excellent, with the Daleks up to no good as per usual and giving us yet another fun way to manipulate people.
The Daleks aren't used to their best advantage, and come across as audio versions of the Cult of Skaro... and that bane of the TV series refit - the last Daleks in existance.
But the worst aspect is the writing - there is too much reliance on descriptive dialogue. I have listened to many, MANY BFP audios and none of them come close to this for descriptions. It's almost of the: "What are you looking at?"/"It's a yellow flower" variety.
Not the worst BFP Dr Who audio, but certainly nowhere near the best.
