RealWorld

The Curse of Davros was the one hundred and fifty-sixth story in Big Finish's monthly range. It was written by Jonathan Morris and featured Colin Baker as the Sixth Doctor and reintroduces Lisa Greenwood as companion, Flip Jackson.

Publishers summary

It's been a year since Philippa "Flip" Jackson found herself transported by Tube train to battle robot mosquitoes on a bizarre alien planet in the company of a Time Lord known only as "the Doctor".

Lightning never strikes twice, they say. Only now there's a flying saucer whooshing over the top of the night bus taking her home. Inside: the Doctor, with another extraterrestrial menace on his tail — the Daleks, and their twisted creator Davros!

But while Flip and the fugitive Doctor struggle to beat back the Daleks' incursion into 21st century London, Davros's real plan is taking shape nearly 200 years in the past, on the other side of the English Channel. At the battle of Waterloo...

References

Cultural references from the real world

  • On visiting the battlefield at Waterloo, Jared is reminded of the strategy-based video game franchise Command & Conquer.

Daleks

  • Davros' Kaled brain patterns are similar to those of a Dalek.

Individuals

  • Flip has never had a solid grasp of history and claims that she was not even allowed to do it for her GCSEs. Consequently, her only knowledge of the Battle of Waterloo comes from the Swedish pop group ABBA's song "Waterloo".

Notes

  • This is the second audio drama released in the main range to feature the Duke of Wellington as a character. The first was Other Lives in December 2005 in which he was played by Ron Moody. He does not actually meet the Doctor in either story.
  • This is the first audio drama released in the main range to feature Davros since Terror Firma in August 2005 and the first overall since Masters of War in December 2008.
  • With this audio drama, Colin Baker becomes the sixth actor to portray Davros. Coincidentally, he has played the sixth incarnation of the Doctor since 1984.
  • This audio drama was recorded on 6 and 7 June 2011.
