Energy of the Daleks is an audio drama based on the long-running British science fiction television series Doctor Who. This audio drama was produced by Big Finish Productions.[1][2]

Plot[edit]

The scene is set in London 2025. An energy crisis persists and The GlobeSphere Corporation plans to alleviate it with solar panels on the moon and a satellite dish on top of the National Gallery. The Doctor has detected an even more incongruous energy in the vicinity.

Cast[edit]

Continuity[edit]

  • The Daleks converted humans into electronically controlled mind-slaves called "Robomen" in their second television story, The Dalek Invasion of Earth in 1964.

Notes[edit]

  • This is Tom Baker's first Dalek story since 1979's Destiny of the Daleks. He also faced them in 1975's Genesis of the Daleks.
  • Mark Benton played Clive in the first episode of the revived Doctor Who television series, Rose, in 2005.
  • Dan Starkey has played Sontarans in several recent Doctor Who television stories, such as The Sontaran Stratagem and A Good Man Goes to War.
  • Although the fourth in this series, Energy of the Daleks was the first story Tom Baker recorded with Big Finish Productions. The recording took place 22 April 2011.[3]

Critical reception[edit]

Paul Mount, writing for Starburst, gave the story 7/10, describing it as a "cracking little romp".[4]
