genesis of the davros,
This review is from: I, Davros 1 - Innocence (Doctor Who S.) (Audio CD)
First in a four part series of audio plays, which tell the life story of davros, the genius scientist who created the daleks.
A brief scene in the present, with davros on trial at the hands of his creations, leads us into flashbacks....
On the planet skaro, a long war that has been raging for centuries between the kaleds and the thals has left much of the planet devastated. Davros, sixteen year old son of a man who wants him to be a soldier, and a woman who wants him to be a scientist, is smart and surly and seemingly above everything. Till he gets some inspiration...
A drama that's positively shakespearian in style. Characters scheme to get what they want. Some die, some fail, and some succeed. And davros takes the first steps to becoming the being we saw on tv. A lot of pleasure comes from seeing how the story goes from this to what we saw during his first tv story, but you can get into this easily without having had to see that [dr who: genesis of the daleks. available on dvd]
Superbly acted throughout, and I really look forward to the second play as a result
