The Curse of Davros is the first story in the 2012 Sixth Doctor audio trilogy.

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...

Cast

references

  • After her flat is destroyed by the Daleks, Flip laments that she will have to move back in her with mother and her boyfriend Nigel whom she considers "creepy."
  • 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." Upon meeting Napoleon only hours before the battle is to begin, she tells him of its outcome by quoting the song's opening lyric: "At Waterloo, Napoleon did surrender."
  • Upon visiting the battlefield at Waterloo, Jared is reminded of the strategy based video game franchise Command & Conquer.
  • Both the Doctor and Davros claim that the latter is hundreds of years old. It is unclear if this approximation of his age includes the ninety years that he spent in cryogenic suspension between the events of DW: Destiny of the Daleks and DW: Resurrection of the Daleks.
