First released in 2001, this is the fourth in a Big Finish spin off series from the Doctor Who main range and, as the title indicates, centres around the Daleks. It's a single disc release, one episode about an hour long.
This is the final episode of the first series, and brings all the strands together in an epic and grand style. Suze is dead, but her final moments put the revolution into full swing, and humanity is now driving the Daleks from the galaxy, lead by Karlendorf. But he is worried about a rogue Dalek trace spotted heading towards the Lopra system. Just what is the Infinity project everyone seems so worried about? He and Albie team up in a desperate race to foil the Dalek's real plan.
This finale centres more on Gareth Thomas' Karlendorf, and allows us to finally get better acquainted with the enigmatic knight of Velyshaa. He comes across as an older, wiser, more cynical Roj Blake as he leads his motley crew into the final battle. He has a superb voice for audio, one that is full of inflection and character, and so charming that you hang on his every word. He draws us into a thrilling and devastating finale, one that rounds out the series superbly.
It's a fitting end to a series that started well and got better. 5 stars.
The Dalek Empire mini-series builds to a terrific climax with this fourth and final instalment. The entire Dalek invasion as witnessed in parts 1-3 is revealed to be an almighty distraction to the real story, as both the humans and Daleks desperately battle for Project Infinity in order to win the war forever. There's a great twist ending, and though it's a rather sudden finale it works perfectly well on its own as it is, though confirmed Dalek Empire addicts can return for more with the sequel Dalek War. A fantastic end to a great spin-off miniseries.
