Summary

The story that became Dalek on TV. Although the televised episode in 2005 (starring Christopher Eccleston) ended up being very different in many important ways, this is the core of the idea that Russell T Davies wanted writer Rob Shearman to develop. Find out how it all started....

Hurrah! The deadly Daleks are back! Yes, those loveable tinpot tyrants have another plan to invade our world. Maybe this time because they want to drill to the Earth's core. Or maybe because they just feel like it. And when those pesky pepperpots are in town, there is one thing you can be sure of. There will be nonstop, high-octane mayhem in store. And plenty of exterminations!

But never fear. The Doctor is on hand to sort them out. Defender of the Earth, saviour of us all. With his beautiful assistant, Evelyn Smythe, by his side, he will fight once again to uphold the beliefs of the English Empire. All hail the glorious English Empire! Now, that sounds like a jubilee worth celebrating, does it not?

Written by Robert Shearman and directed by Nicholas Briggs and Robert Shearman.

Sorry what?

Without giving anything away, there are some major plot issues and some very odd Dalek behaviour that prevented me from really enjoying this as much as I should have.

Incredible and Chilling Summation of Humanity

This story delves so in-depth to both the Daleks and humanity. The latter in such a way I think it prophetic – listening from 2021 - and the former something very joyous for a fan of Doctor Who to hear: Daleks with inner conflicts and questions, in such a way that it’s completely believable in-spite of what I know the Daleks to be.

This is my first audio drama featuring a classic Doctor, it was recommended to me as such - I have many more to listen to.

worth a credit but not the greatest Doctor Who

starts off well, story isn't the greatest doctor who with some inconsistencies in the story. A bit too much dalek conversation at times as they are only really good at saying one word. but all in all I enjoyed it as the performance ones are better than the plain read stories in my opinion. worth a credit for sure

Great story

Keeps you hooked from start to finish
Starts a bit slow the emotions are vintage Dr who could see it in my mind like watching a film. Very well done.
