Big Finish Doctor Who: Enemy of the Daleks

Enemy of the Daleks – Animated!

A few years ago writer David Bishop wrote the Doctor Who Big Finish audio drama Enemy of the Daleks – a fantastic tale featuring Sylvester McCoy, Sophie Aldred and Philip Olivier.

In this tale, the Doctor and companions find themselves on the former paradise planet Bliss where invading Daleks and a dark secret guarded by the obsessive Professor Shimura threatens to turn an ancient feud on its head.

Now, a trio of fan made animated videos using CGI, animation, and even action figures, have recreated that tale, posted their work on YouTube, and have caught the eye of Bishop.

First, Bargie57 renders the Dalek fleet attacking the fleeing humans in space (love the Dalek manned fighters).

Then, doctorpoo21 using 2D animation software has animated the Doctor’s arrival on the Roarke 279 research facility.

Before finally, using nothing more than action figures and patience, TTTE Productions, have re-created a Dalek’s demise at the hands of a Kesabian.

Enemy of the Daleks is still available from Big Finish for £14.99 on CD and £12.99 as a download.

About the Author


Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.

    I like! Particularly the first one.

    I sometimes wonder if, years and years from now, when (god forbid) Doctor Who no longer exists on television, and there are no original Doctors still with us, if going through the Big Finish catalogue and animating them will be the last era of the original show. Imagine the technology that will be available then! Of course, we’ll probably all be holograms by then.

    Blimey, that was quite a morbid thought once it was written down.
