Summary

Nicholas Briggs reads this brand new novelisation of a thrilling screen adventure for the Ninth Doctor and Rose.

The entire Dalek race, wiped out in one second. I watched it happen. I made it happen!

The Doctor and Rose arrive in an underground vault in Utah in the near future. The vault is filled with alien artefacts. Its billionaire owner, Henry van Statten, even has possession of a living alien creature, a mechanical monster in chains that he has named a Metaltron.

Seeking to help the Metaltron, the Doctor is appalled to find it is in fact a Dalek - one that has survived the horrors of the Time War, just as he has. And as the Dalek breaks loose, the Doctor is brought back to the brutality and desperation of his darkest hours spent fighting the creatures of Skaro...this time with the Earth as their battlefield.

Nicholas Briggs, who voices the Daleks in the BBC TV series, reads Robert Shearman's novelisation of his own 2005 TV script.

Reading produced by Neil Gardner.

Sound design by Simon Power.

Executive producer: Michael Stevens.

Much more than the TV can expose.

Verisimilitude as Shearman weaves it. To quote Pratchett “we don’t do nice, we do right” [witches].

A good Dalek story

Nicholas Briggs is a excellent choice. He is voice of the Daleks and sounds a bit like the 9th Doctor. I think is one of the best new stories.

absolutely amazing!

I thought Briggs did an okay Eccleston impression. He spoke a bit too slow at times but it never took me out of the story. Robert Shearman re-defined what it means to be a Dalek once again. overall a beautiful, insane, story, and I am all for it!!!
