This story is the first in the recent radio relaunch of Paul McGanns doctor, and what a story it is! Set in the colony of Red Rocket Rising a woman on the colony has contacted a race of aliens to assist the colonists - the Daleks. Then the doctor turns up and things get going...
The thing about Paul McGanns doctor is he doesn't seem too bothered about exterminating the daleks themselves, and this story hints at that, as his doctor advocates their destruction. However, this is not a bad thing necesarily as I find these stories somewhat more scary than the TV show, which is also good at horror.
There is great chemistry between the doctor and his new companion Lucie, and Tom Cardwell's role is played brilliantly. It makes for an exciting drama which leaves you clamouring for the conclusion.
