5.0 out of 5 stars An unbound ''Genesis of the Daleks''?., 26 Jan. 2009
This review is from: Doctor Who Unbound Masters of War CD (Dr Who Big Finish) (Audio CD)
I loved the way David Warner played the Doctor in the previous play, and he's taken it to the next level. The Third Doctor's dedication to pacifism is shown right at the start, berating the ex-Brigadier for causing insult to their meglomaniac host, while admiting that he had neutralised a dangerous weapon. Equally, his ability to fight his oldest foes with great virulence are also displayed. Warner's Third Doctor comes over as being more combative than Pertwee's. The skewing of the show's timeline is defeated by making Davros a mythical creature at first, then making him the saviour of the Thals, but only so that he can as ever gain control over the Dalek's. Terry Molloy's portrayal of Davros is always at it's best when rational and logical. That is so here. The nazification elements of ''Genesis'' come out in the destruction of 'defective' Thals, the Dalek occupation of Skaro, curfews, resistance cells and such like. Nicholas Courtney never lets the side down, he's the perfect companion, while also being able to drive the plot when seperated from the Doctor. Hopefully Big Finish will bring the pairing back in the future.
