1)Terry Molloy on full audio dutys now portrays a 29 year old Davros in this second part of the I Davros mini series.
2)A great chilling script by James Parsons & Andrew Sterling-Brown.
Nothing unless horror not your thing.

2)Andrew Wisher plays the role of Tech-Op's Reston & is the son of original Davros actor Michael Wisher.
1 CD Running Time 72 minutes approx.
Davros is now a grown man approaching his 30th Birthday & is trying to get out of the Kaled military academy & use his intellect in advanced sciences in Tech-Operations.
Davros wants to use his genius to devise ways of helping the Kaled race annihilate the Thals in there never ending war bringing about the near destructiveness between the two factions on Skaro.
But as Davros untakes a mission for Kaled military intelligence, Davros & his team must enter behind enemy lines underneath the Thal City were Davros witnesses hardware & technology that he could use to advance his research into creating the ultimate weapon & it may also teach him a few life lessons in the process.
As dangerous as Thal City is it is nothing compared to the sacred relics that inhabit the Thal wastelands including the Cannibalistic Mutos & Vaaraga plants a wasteland Davros & his team must cross not once but twice.
With Davros sister trying to bring about a peaceful resolution via a signed peace treaty between the Thals & Kaleds, Davros mother Calcula who's love & loyalty to her son further descends into madness in the lengths she will go to for her son Davros to achieve his aim of saving the Kaled race & completely obliterating the Thals from existence.
Davros in his continuation of his diabolical experiments of accelerated genetic mutation who's trying to devise the ultimate weapon of pure evil will stop at nothing or let anybody not even his family stand in his way of his inhumane experiments.
This is another exellent chapter to the Davros mini series were Terry Molloy takes centre stage as a 29 year old Davros who is so obsessed with creating a genetic weapon of ultimate evil he descends into dark experimentations that will truly shock the listener here.
This mini series pulls no punches thanks to a wonderful script by James Parson's & Andrew Sterling-Brown as it shows the darkness & evil of the Davros character who's intent is too finally rule Skaro & achieve universal domination.
There are some very dark themes explored here & the reveal of the cannibalistic Mutos is very chilling indeed making this mini series very dark disturbing & edgy story.
But the last 20 minutes is were the drama really unfolds that i won't reveal in this review "Spoilers".
This mini series is certainly not suitable for young children & is aimed at a more mature audience & it works better for it as the series really showcases Big Finish at there gruesome best.
