Dalek Universe is a roller-coaster ride”

Producer David Richardson said: “The Dalek Universe series is a roller-coaster ride and something rarely done in Doctor Who. [It’s] a journey through different worlds within one storyline universe, but not really a journey through time.

“It gives us such a lovely tapestry to work within: interlinking themes, over-arching plots and brilliant character histories to explore. And all this with David Tennant, Jane Slavin and Joe Sims – what a joyous nine days of recording we had!”

Doctor Who: Dalek Universe 2

Cycle of Destruction by Roy Gill

After Mark starts behaving oddly, the Doctor and Anya find themselves on a strange planet with their friend missing. Searching for him they find their way to an isolated research base. The corridors show signs of animal incursions and the scientists are behaving strangely. But a big surprise is waiting for them.

Because this is where Mark Seven came from. They’re about to find out who he is. But is that information too dangerous to know?

 

The Trojan Dalek by John Dorney

The Doctor, Mark and Anya head for an SSS space-station searching for the missing temporal scientist, Arborecc. But the officer in charge denies all knowledge of his presence and demands their departure. Unwilling to leave so easily, the group split up to investigate… and uncover a heinous plot involving the Doctor’s oldest foes.

Or do they?

 

The Lost by Rob Valentine

When the Doctor’s latest scheme to get back to the future fails, the team’s ship crashes on a strange world, potentially trapping them for ever. Searching for replacement parts, they find their way to a building where heart-breakingly familiar faces await them.

Lies are about to be exposed. Everyone will learn the truth. And nothing will be the same again.
