Big Finish Folly, Part 106e – Order of the Daleks, by Mike Tucker

Order of the DaleksWe’re still on our semi-regular peregrinations around the previous incarnations here, before carrying on with the Seventh Doctor’s Main Range adventures. And the Dalek stories are turning up like buses at the moment. Ol’ Sixey and Mrs Clarke feature against the most intriguing Dalek concept we’ve seen in the last few years…

Accordingly, Strellin is protected: landings by off-worlders are strictly prohibited.

Something that might bring disaster not just to Strellin, but to every civilised world in the galaxy! (more…)

The Doctor should be taking in an opera, but instead he’s trying to work out why slot A doesn’t fit into flange B… (more…)
