5.0 out of 5 stars YOU ARE AN ENEMY OF THE DALEKS!, 11 Jun. 2009
This review is from: Doctor Who: Enemy of the Daleks (Dr Who Big Finish) (Audio CD)
A new four part audio adventure for sylvester mccoy as the seventh doctor with his companions ace and hex.

A few things to mention to those who don't follow this range regularly:

this is part of a three part 'season' with The Magic Mousetrap (Doctor Who) preceding it and the forthcoming The Angel of Scutari (Doctor Who) following. whilst this story does stand on it's own there is some character development for hex at the end that will doubtless come into play in the next story.

It also contains episode two of a twelve part story called the three companions which is being spread over the regular releases in the range at the moment. but this episode is a typical tale of the doctor and companions exploring a strange world and you could pick it up without having heard part one.

enemy of the daleks itself sees the doctor and companions reach the planet bliss. they find a hostile landscape and a human base. for once the doctor isn't manipulating his companions. he tries to keep them out of things. because terrible events are due to happen on the planet. and he has to find out what.

Inside the base is a scientist with a secret. a military unit who have fought the daleks before. and a deadly threat to the aliens from skaro.
Battle is joined. People die. Who will walk away?

This is a superb and engrossing listen, because it models itself very much on war movies and shows the various ways people can react in combat. All of which are superbly acted by the cast. added to which there are moral debates of the kind that the show has done before in other dalek stories, but they are presented in a way that makes them interesting and thought provoking.

superb incidental music makes the battle sequences gripping.

part two of the three companions is a very short episode of little more than ten minutes, but it's also very involving, as it tells of the doctor visiting a strange world that's like a cross between the movies logans run and terminator salvation. clever sound design and strong writing conjure up a nightmarish atmosphere.

so all in all a very strong set of episodes and well worth a listen
