Doctor Who – Order of the Daleks

The Sixth Doctor’s new companion Mrs Clark encounters his oldest enemy in Doctor Who – Order of the Daleks…

Released today from Big Finish is Doctor Who – Order of the Daleks: the Sixth Doctor’s latest encounter with the feared Daleks, when he and Mrs Constance Clark arrive on the planet Strellin and find all is not as it seems:

In the Galactic Census, idyllic Strellin is recorded as a Grade Three planet – its inhabitants possessing neither advanced technology, nor knowledge of other worlds. Accordingly, Strellin is protected: landings by off-worlders are strictly prohibited. Unless, of course, those off-worlders are officials of the Galactic Census itself, come to investigate the origin of a mysterious sub-space signal – a signal no native of Strellin should be able to send…

Breaking all local by-laws, the time-travelling Doctor and his companion L/Wren Mrs Constance Clarke (AWOL) have only just landed on Strellin, too. But they and the Census officials aren’t the only off-worlders to have come here. Inside a nearby monastery, the monks of the reclusive Brotherhood of the Black Petal are guarding a strange and terrible secret. Something that might bring disaster not just to Strellin, but to every civilised world in the galaxy!

Doctor Who – Order of the Daleks stars Colin Baker and Miranda Raison as the Sixth Doctor and Mrs Constance Clark, alongside British TV legend John Savident, and Nicholas Briggs as the Daleks. The story is directed by Jamie Anderson, son of Gerry Anderson: creator of Stingray, Thunderbirds, Space 1999 and a host of other TV classics. It was written by Mike Tucker, Doctor Who novelist and FX wizard for both the classic and new Doctor Who series.

The Doctor and Constance’s adventures continue next month in Doctor Who – Absolute Power. Why not subscribe Big Finish’s releases today, not only saving money but getting exclusive downloads including PDF scripts, extended extras, and up to four Doctor Who – Subscriber Short Trips a year.
