Part one of a new four part audio series charting the early life of Davros before his creation of the Daleks, 'Innocence' focuses on Davros' family, and in particular the ruthless political machinations of his mother Lady Calcula. The play focuses more on character than on science fiction concepts, but while the plot occasionally seems a little languid ultimately a strong theme concerning the relationship between children and parents emerges, both with Davros and his tutor Magrantine. While not brilliant this is still a good strong start to this series, just be aware that due to Davros being played as a young man Terry Molloy is virtually absent in this installment.

The story of Dvros as an audio play? 'Genesis of the Daleks' is one of my favourite Dr Who stories from childhood and one of the few I can say has really stood the test of time, so I thought this one had to be worth the cost of its download. Boy, was I not disappointed.

'Innocence' opens what could be as many as fifty years before the events of 'Genesis of the Daleks'. The war between the Kaled and Thal peoples on Skaro has not yet totally poisoned the planet but that process is well underway. Sixteen year old Davros is being pulled in opposite directions by the demands of his parents. His father Colonel Nasgard is insistant on his son following a military career, whereas his mother, the well-named Lady Calcula, has him down as a scientist in the making. And young Davros? Well, at first he seems quite happy at the family villa by Drammankin Lake studying the water life. Against a background of political intrigue and explosive (literally) personal and family revalations we see the beginnings of the journey from arrogant teenager to murderously insane genius.

Overall, this is play is a well produced 77 minutes worth of drama. Diehard Whovians will enjoy the backstory - for example neither the Kaled nor Thal cities is covered by a protective dome and nuclear weapons have not yet been extensively used. Drammankin Lake is not the nest of icky things it will become in time for the First Doctor's visit five hundred years later.

Some of the dialogue is quite creepily disturbing - especially that between Davros and his tutor Magrantine. As Davros' personality slides further and further along the sociopathic spectrum, he starts to take an unhealthy interest in his tutor's experiments on the effect of nuclear radiation on Skarosian lifeforms...

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
