5.0 out of 5 stars Unmissible Dalek Adventure On Audio, 25 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: "Doctor Who": Prisoner of the Daleks (BBC Audio) (Audio CD)
This novel by Author Trevor Baxendale is a Dalek novel for BBC books which has been adapted for audio & narrated by voice of the Daleks & execute producer of Big Finish Productions Nicolas Briggs.

The plot is a good one as Earth are battling the forces of a Dalek invasion & as the Tenth Doctor arrives in the Tardis on a Starhip on the frontline of the ongoing Dalek battle.

The Doctor helps a team of Bounty Hunters in there attempt to capture a Dalek which they do successfully as the Bounty Hunters plan on interrogating the Dalek who is seemingly deemed powerless, As the Bounty Hunters are to be paid handsomely for ever Dalek they capture.

But as the Daleks are ruthless & manipulate creatures all isn't as it first appears to be & soon the tables are turned on the Timelord as the Doctor becomes a prisoner of the Daleks.

This is a Dalek adventure that acknowledges why the Daleks are a major threat to the universe as this story has huge Dalek battles & yet there is a moral dilemma to this story as the Bounty Hunters resort to torturing a captured Dalek makes for a intriguing scenario as it brings up the moral code of human nature that are we any better than the Daleks.

The Doctor is exellently written here as Baxendale writes a morally conflicted Tenth Doctor who can't interfere as much as he'd like as these event's are set before the Time war yet here we see a solo Doctors morals & judgment tested to the full & this would've made a great Tv 2 parter as it would've given David Tennant some exellent scenes to perform as a conflicted Timelord.

This is narrated by the exellent Nicolas Briggs whom is also on Dalek voicing duties here & gives a exellent narrative flow to the story.

This is a exellent adventure thats superbly narrated & is one of the better Dalek adventures written as the author Trevor Baxendale delivers a fully rounded character driven action packed emotional story.

Great review; I really enjoyed this story, it seems to really have the Doctor Who and Dalek roots well sorted so rings true all the way through. Even the other characters are well written and fully fleshed so to speak.

Thank you my dear, I love this story as its excellently written by Trevor Baxendale who brings back the ruthless nature of the Daleks & writes great characters & a moral dilemma for The Doctor as the story tests him emotionally.

I agree - I thought it was so good I have it on audio cd and in book form! I thought it really captured the whole Doctor / Dalek thing wonderfully.
I gave it a positive hours ago and it showed 2 / 2 (I checked to make sure) - but now it's gone back to 1 / 1!?!? infuriating.

Had two positive votes on Planet of Evil & Dalek Generation yet shows 1 out of 2 on both.

Your right it's a joke mate.
