Dalek Empire 3.6, The Future: We are the supreme beings...,
This review is from: Dalek Empire 3.6 - The Future (Doctor Who S.) (Audio CD)
*Warning, contains plot spoilers*
First released in 2004, this is the final episode of the third season of audio releases to feature the Daleks and no Doctor.
This episode picks up directly from the fifth in the season. All the separate story lines are now merged into one frantic race to Velyshaa and the records of Karlendorf (you will need to listen to seasons 1 and 2 to get the full significance). This is a thrilling non-stop actioner that builds towards an inevitable climax. It explores just what it is to be human or dalek, and events wind towards a seemingly final, dark conclusion. But just as you think all is lost there is a ray of hope. This episode brings the series full circle in a stunning fashion. The ending is dark and bleak, but the bitter taste is sweetened somewhat by that little ray of optimism at the end.
It's a thunderingly good wrap up to the series, the only shortcoming is that it is not a stand alone release, you really need to listen to all the others in the series to get the full story. It's a single disc release, and clocks in at just over an hour. I love the sixties retro artwork, there is a feeling that this has been produced by people like me for people like me - people with a love of good design, a reverence for the Daleks and a sense of style. Excellent, 5 stars.
