Format: Audio CD
Second in a series of four audio plays that tell the backstory of davros, the creator of the daleks from doctor who. First seen in the story genesis of the daleks as a badly mutated man in a chair, davros in this story is a thirty something soldier who desperately wants to be a scientist so he can help end the war between his people the kaleds and their enemies the thals that has dragged on for centuries.

His mother wants him to as well. His sister is a peace activist and will do whatever it takes to end the war. Davros getting sent on a special mission might give everyone the chance to get what they want.

Just as good as the first part. This once again gives us powerful family drama and a look at the nightmare world of skaro, where years of radioactive bombardment have created a horrifying world outside the cities where people still live. This is superbly well realised and great use of sound makes some hoary old creations from the 60's into something quite terrifying.

There's a bit of violence at the end that might have been cut if this was on television. It goes to illustrate the sheer determination of one character.

Another excellent play in an excellent series. And reasonably self contained, so you don't have to have heard the first one to get this.

By the time of this 2nd instalment in Big Finish's 4 part exploration of the early life of the Daleks creator Davros is is now an adult in the military, allowing Terry Molloy to once again reprise his role. The storyline concerns Davros joining a Kaled mission to examine and destroy a new secret Thal weapon, and along the way introducing us to the cannabalistic Mutos and the flesh-eating Vaarga plants. The journey itself is important for Davros own development as he learns the motivating strength of hate. An excellent drama, both showing the more reasonable side of Davros' personality with his friendship with fellow technician Reston, and the ultimate ruthless streak that both the war and his machiavellian mother push him towards. Great stuff.

The action picks up about fourteen years after the close of 'Innocence'. Davros is increasingly dissatisfied with his life in the military and confides to his friend Tech-Ops Reston how fed up he is of testing substandard weaponry. There is an implication that the war with the Thals has simmered down somewhat. To Davros this means the Thals are simply regrouping - to his sister Yarvell it's clear evidence that both sides are approaching exhaustion and a peace treaty has to be signed while they still can. Summoned to the office of the Kaled Supremo, Davros is amazed to be told that his work has been closely followed by the authorities. He is offered the chance to take part in a covert mission behind Thal lines. The objective is a new Thal weapons production plant. The mission goes ahead - but with consequences that will change Davros' life forever.

The backstory of Skaro is further fleshed out and we start to see that the nuclear and chemical effects of the war have begun to mutate the surviving life. Drammankin Lake, by whose shores Davros grew up is now referred to as the Lake of Mutations. Indeed, it's well on the way to becoming the monster-infested radioactive bog encountered by the First Doctor.

Expect by the end of the story to have the Byzantine scheming of Davros' mother Lady Calcula revealled in full. Davros' single-minded obsession to ensure the survival of the Kaled race at any cost is leading him further and further down the route of genetic experimentation and accelerated mutation and he will let nothing and no-one stand in his way.

A thoroughly rivetting piece of audio drama.
