There’s a Big Finish audio that has the Daleks zipping around pretending to be Shakespeare scholars. Yes, really. I couldn’t help but think of that when I saw this.
Lesterson continues to believe he’s in control of the Daleks, this despite basically all evidence to the contrary. One can assume he’s just too deeply invested in the concept to give up on it.
Meantime, Ben and the Doctor are working to try and find Polly. The Doctor has already began to slip into his “acting like a fool to encourage complacency in one’s enemies” thing, which works so well for him.
The Doctor and Ben wander around a bit, and to their surprise, come across four Daleks, when they were under the impression there were only three. This implies someone is making them. How?
Well, when a mommy Dalek and a daddy Dalek love each other very much It’s probably best not to speculate.
The two go to confront Lesterson, who is a little surprised at the idea of there being more than three Daleks. He also seems to be becoming alarmed by the whole situation, so perhaps there’s hope for him yet.
Well, the reconstruction I’m watching of this seems to have kind of gone all to crap all of a sudden. Audio cutting out and images jumping around, but it’s still playing, so I’l deal with it.
Ben and the Doctor spy on the bad guys as they toy around with the Daleks, getting ready to do various evil and sinister things. They’re spotted, and Ben gets knocked out, while the Doctor gets captured. He’s lead to a cell where he quickly begins to plot his escape.
And in our final set of scenes, Lesterson, with the zeal of a convert, goes to see exactly what’s going on with the Daleks. He sneaks and peaks and finally finds…a Dalek manufacturing operation! Dun-dun-dun!
I mean, ok, they actually cut to the end credits theme, but still.
