5.0 out of 5 stars Daleks Be Afraid Be Very Afraid!, 29 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doctor Who: Enemy of the Daleks (Dr Who Big Finish) (Audio CD)
Cd Info.
2xCd of a 4 episode audio adventure, Running time 120 minutes approx, Behind the scenes interviews, Trailer.

Trivia.
1)This is Hex first encounter with the Daleks & Aces third.
2)The Doctor references the mission the Timelords sent him on to destroy or avert the Dalek creation in the classic tv story Genesis Of The Daleks.
3)Hex compares the Daleks to the Cybermen who attacked St Garts Hospital in the year 2021.

Synopsis.
The planet Bliss used to be a paradise planet but when the Tardis brings the Seventh Doctor, Ace & Hex to the Bliss the Doctor notices something is very wrong as the air is heavy with the smell of burnt silk & the planet is overrun with Ironweeds.

Bliss is about to receive some other visitors as the Doctors deadliest enemy the Daleks arrive on Bliss on the trail of a lost patrol of starship troopers holed up in Roarke 279 research facility as Lieutenant Beth Stokes is about to make her last stand against the Daleks

Yet there is a secret on the planet Bliss guarded by the obsessive Professor Shimura.

The Daleks are about to encounter there greatest enemy the Kiseibya & this time it's the Daleks who may need saving!

The Doctor knows bad things are about to happen on Bliss history has told him so but can the Doctor change history or must the deadly event's play out as history intended?

Timelord Thoughts.
This story is engaging from begining to end & David Bishop strong & nail bitting script brings back the fear & threat of the Daleks & yet introduces another fearful advisory in the form of the Kiseibya.

Sylvester McCoy is on top form as the Seventh Doctor & for once he isn't manipulating his companions as the Doctor simply knows that terrible things are going to happen on Bliss very soon & he sets about investigating knowing that history has told him he will have a part to play in event's here.

Sophie Aldred & Phillip Oliver both deliver great performances as the duo get involved in the action as Ace battles the Daleks, Hex starts to see the carnage around him unfold as he becomes aware of the death & destruction the Doctor brings with him wherever he goes as Hex eye's are opened to event's around him & sees traveling with the Timelord in a whole new light.

The Daleks are quite sinister in this story as they plan to annihilate a lost patrol of troopers yet the most disturbing scene of this adventure is hearing what the Kiseibya does to the Daleks as this shocking scene takes this story into quite gruesome territory that is chilling to hear on a audio adventure.

Enemy Of The Daleks is a chilling gruesome & action packed tale that delivers one of Big Finishes best Dalek story's to date, With great sound effects & incidental music courtesy of Big Finishes high production values, You have a story that delivers 2 hours of superb tension filled audio adventure featuring the Doctor & his greatest enemy the Daleks.

Hello timelord. I've heard this one and really enjoyed it.
I remember this being pretty fast-paced and full-on action, and is a great story for the Doctor, Ace and Hex when they come up against the Daleks.
Great review. Tim.
