Centuries ago on the war-torn planet Skaro, a great scientist created the most evil creatures the Universe would ever know... Daleks.
It was at their genesis that the scientist, Davros, first met and was defeated by the Doctor.
Over the years and throughout space, they fought, a fight that ended with the Doctor's destruction of Skaro and the Daleks. Except...
Davros survived. Alone. In the dark. With only thoughts of revenge keeping him alive.
The Doctor is back. Davros is waiting. Their destiny is now.
A welcome return to Doctor Who for the arch-fiend and creator of The Daleks. The story continues on from Big Finish audio 'The Next Life' and is a direct sequel (for Davros) to 1988 TV story 'Remembrance of The Daleks'. The story is a great opportunity to explore the mad genius' psyche and see him duel with the Eighth Doctor for the first time.
The TARDIS crew have returned to their normal universe after the story arc that took place in the 'Divergents universe' and they are immediately confronted by The Timelord's greatest enemy.
There is plenty going on here; from The Doctor's intense verbal duelling with Davros to his companions' rollercoaster ride as they uncover another dark Dalek masterplan. There is a totally unexpected ending too, making this one of the best Dalek stories for years; on TV or audio.
The first part of this story leaves the listener quite baffled; it’s hard to reconcile some of the scenes that we hear with what is quite clearly happening in some of the other scenes. These all come together as the story progresses, but it is very cleverly done, and throws the listener right out of any ability to piece together the world or the scenarios that they are about to find themselves in (and with them, the Doctor and the Tardis crew). To that extent, the listener is flying as blind as the Doctor and the others for quite a while in the story. When the narrative falls into place and the pieces of the story come together, you find yourself realising all that has happened before really does make sense; and you find yourself wanting to listen to the whole story over again (which I did, just so I could see again how it all fitted together).
The Doctor is in fine form in this story; psychologically, ethically and morally finding his hands bound for quite a while in the story, Paul McGann plays the sensitive and morally aware Doctor very well indeed. Charley and C’rizz have their own very important parts to play in the story, and what C’rizz ultimately makes of the new universe in which he finds himself is quite troubling for future stories. Really great stuff; while the Daleks may play a part in this story, their actions are not always the paramount ones in the resolution of the story, but their role is definitely pivotal to the development of the other characters.
This is the first Eighth Doctor story to not be part of its own miniseries. I have to say it felt quite odd to hear a one off release in amongst all the other Doctor's adventures instead of a big chunk of Eight in one go. This is a bit of a one for the fans in that it contains references to the events of Storm Warning, the divergent universe saga and previous Davros stories both on screen and audio. I am guessing that casual listeners will not get a lot of the story.
Following their return from the divergent universe, Eight, Charlie and C'Rizz are captured by some dopey Daleks and a deranged Davros. Soon events unfold that shows the Doctor had another companion in the divergent universe, unbeknownst to him, and that all was not as it seemed when he first met Charlie. I don't want to give too much away, but some of the revelations are pretty interesting.
It's a decent story that spends time exploring the relationship between Charlie and C'rizz, and hints at the possible future for C'Rizz. McGann and Molloy try desperately to steal every scene off each other when they appear together, and largely Molloy wins by a nose as a Davros who is very frightened and totally unhinged even by his own standards. It's a great pairing, and their scenes together are electric.
In all a decent little release. Some of the plotting is a bit confused at times, and it is mainly for the committed fans, but the actors and producers work their socks off, so 4 stars.
