Friends and foes are back in Doctor Who: Dalek Universe 3!

Big Finish released the third and final volume of its Doctor Who: Dalek Universe series. In this volume, The Doctor is still lost in a time before the Time War and will encounter old enemies, but also a familiar time traveling archaeologist.

David Tennant and Jane Slavin are back for three more stories as The Tenth Doctor and Anya Kingdom. They are joined by Terry Molloy (Davros), Alex Kingston (River Song), Nicholas Briggs (The Daleks), Ajjaz Awad (Vilsa/Jeska/Dranta), Noma Dumezweni (Rodekka), Matthe Jacobs Morgan (Kamen Vers), Joseph Millson (Colonel Keelan) and Paul Panting (Karl Lamb).

The box set is directed by Ken Bentley and produced by David Richardson. You can read the synopsis for the three stories below:

3.1 The First Son by Lizzie Hopley

The Doctor’s attempts to return home have led him to the middle of a war zone… and a familiar voice. The travellers have arrived on a planet made up of crashed space-ships where they encounter River Song… Or do they? Because she’s dressed as a Movellan and claims to be a member of that robot race. Is she undercover, a duplicate, or something more sinister? And more importantly… who is her son?

3.2 The Dalek Defence by Matt Fitton

The Doctor and Anya are trapped between battling Dalek and Movellan forces and only the intervention of Earth can get them out of trouble. But the humans have troubles too – and a very familiar prisoner. Davros. Stuck in a universe before the Time War, the Doctor is bound by the rules of his own past… Can he keep everyone alive without changing history? And would he even want to?

3.3 The Triumph of Davros by Matt Fitton

Returning to a familiar planet, with Movellan and Dalek warships floating in the sky above, the stakes for the time-travellers are higher than ever. The mistakes of the Doctor’s past are coming back to haunt him. Alliances are made and broken. And the course of the war is about to turn. The Doctor can’t stop what’s coming. But maybe, just maybe… he may be able to save his friends.
