A Truly Chilling Origin Story Of Skaros Dalek Creator,
This review is from: I, Davros 1 - Innocence (Doctor Who S.) (Audio CD)
1)Terry Molloy who is more of a narrator in this opening adventure gives a chilling synopsis on his early years as were hear a 16 yr old Davros slowing becoming more insane & obsessive in his quest to create the ultimate weapon in the Thal/Kaled war.
2)A great chilling script by Gary Hopkins whos script deals with dark issues that makes this mini series tone more suitable for a more mature audience.
3)Rory Jennings is excellent as a young Davros.
4)Some truly shocking & disturbing scenes may give some listeners nightmares.
The mature tone & at times graphic nature of the material may put off more sensitive listener's.
1)Rory Jennings was in NuWho Series 2 episode The Idiot's Lantern as Tommy.
2)Richard Franklin plays Davros Father? Colonel Nasgard is better known in the Third Doctor's era as Captain Mike Yates.
1 CD Running time 75 minutes, Trailer.
These event's take place between Revelation of the Daleks & Bif Finishes The Juggernauts.
The planet Skaro is at war with two rival factions determined to wipe out the other.
The Thals & The Kaleds have fought for generations for reasons long forgotten how or who started this long & bloody war but one side is determined to end it by any means necessary.
Born into a influential family a young 16 year old Davros decides against following his father wishes into becoming a soldier in the Military who instead Davros devotes his time to science who is quickly noticed by his mentor as being a gifted genius.
With his mother a scheming politician, His Sister joining the Military Youth, Davros who is aided by his possessive mother to purse his dreams of science begins to assert himself & take control of his own life & this first part to the mini series shows Davros slow decent into madness as he takes his first steps towards his Destiny.
This is part 1 of a 4 part mini series that deals with the early beginnings of Skaros megalomaniac Dalek creator Davros.
This is a dark & yet intriguing first part to the mini series which certainly isn't suitable for younger children as there are several shocking & disturbing moments in this story that really push the boundaries with it's content.
When I first listened to this story I was shocked at it's graphic content putting it another way if this was on tv it would be shown after the 9pm watershed.
There are a few shocking parts to this story showcasing that at 16 Davros was unhinged bordering psychotic using any means necessary to achieve his goals as he slowly decends into his path & destiny.
Gary Hopkins delivers a no holds barred script that punches the listerner in the gut as this is light on humour but heavy on horror.
This is a truly disturbing gruesome first part to the mini series but a intriguing one that draws you in & stays in your mind long after it's finished playing.
Highly recommended but suitable a more mature audience.

This is a fabulous mini series & Big Finish did have a offer of £15 for the set but I'm unsure if the offer still availble.
This has a more mature tone & doesn't hold back on the violence & is very disturbing & gruesome in parts but it is Davros.
Trust me mate this is worth getting.

Oh yes, this series is definitely worth getting!
When I started listening to the first one, I was quite horrified by where it seemed to be going; definitely a series that needs a more mature audience as timelord007 says.
I keep trying to put positives but they just don't always stick :-(
Keep writing though, great reviews, and I will keep trying!

Thanks for feedback, I Davros without doubt for a mature audience, I'm getting fed up with Amazon & this non accepting of my positive votes they soon accept the 3 negative I had yesterday within minutes.
Is it there software?

Well, I suppose it must be. It's like they sometimes read them as accepted then discard them, and sometimes just don't register at all. I guess it must be something in their software algorithms that's rejecting the votes for some reason. But I don't know why? Stick to it though, hopefully it will right itself in time.
