Energy of the Daleks (#1.04)

Big Finish, Fourth Doctor Series

Now THAT is a Dalek adventure! Mind you, it’s actually helped by the Daleks not actually being in the adventure for over half of it, just the humans. I really, really like this one. Some running around, a helper for the Doctor when he gets separated from Leela, some torture of a companion that can handle it and fight back for real. Loved the action in this story! Leela’s first confrontation with the Daleks and she does quite well for herself without being Ace. Not much I can say about this one without ruining it, except I do wonder if there are humans out in the universe at this point in history. It seems far enough ahead that there would be, thus the Dalek goal isn’t really feasible. But that’s the only “complaint” I can think of…
