Imagine if Agatha Christie had written a mystery play in space involving the Daleks and you have, "Curse of the Daleks." It's actually a very good space mystery with a lot of plausible suspects as well as red herrings. The characters are interesting even if many of them are standard stock characters.

The dialogue doesn't really let you forget that this was written as a 1960s stage play, but that's really the story's charm. It's a period piece with absurd science, politically incorrect attitudes, and the same understanding of the Daleks people had in 1965. It's delightfully well-acted and I love that Big Finish brought back one of the actors from the original stage performance. Overall, this is an enjoyable bit of Doctor Who history brought to life.

No Doctor, just Daleks. This is a straight adaptation of an old sixties play by Terry Nation. It's alright but nothing special.

I did enjoy the theme tune which is a version of the Doctor Who theme but it sounds like it's been done by Clint Mansell.
