Time has gone awry. The Doctor is lost, without his TARDIS. But he’s not alone. The Space Security Service agents Anya Kingdom and Mark Seven haven’t always been on his side in the past, but now they are here to help him.

 And he’s going to need them - because the oldest foes of all are waiting to strike. Ready to take down their greatest enemy...

1.1 Buying Time by John Dorney

The far future. Anya Kingdom of the Space Security Service is on a mission investigating an SSS ship crashing on a distant jungle planet. Unknown to her superiors, she’s searching for something very specific... but what she finds is completely unexpected. Her old friend, the Doctor. With a completely different face and no idea what he’s doing there.

The Time Lord soon finds himself drawn into a conspiracy involving voracious predators, time travel and a malevolent businessman.

History itself is breaking down. If he makes a mistake, it could mean the end of everything...

1.2 The Wrong Woman by John Dorney

The team’s investigations have taken an unexpected turn - but the signs all still point to Sheldrake. With the clock ticking down to the launch of the time tunnels, the Doctor, Anya and Mark split up... but soon discover how hard it is to fight a foe who can always keep one step ahead of you.

But stopping him is only half the battle. The Doctor says that time can be rewritten - and Anya is searching for redemption. Can she put history back on track? Or is the Doctor’s future never going to be the same again?

1.3 The House of Kingdom by Andrew Smith

The Doctor and his friends are trying to locate a scientist to help them on their quest... but an attack on a space-station alters their plans.

Rescued by Anya's grandfather, Merrick, and taken to Neptune, the Doctor and Mark discover her family history. A story of betrayal and loss.

Will the Kingdoms be reconciled? Or are they destined to continue the mistakes of the past?

This boxset release contains all three stories, plus additional behind the scenes interviews.

Reviews

What a boxset! Packed with twists and turns, surprise reveals and reunions between old friends, Dalek Universe 1 is truly an event release ... reflected in the strong guest casting and impeccable sound design and music from Howard Carter. The stars of the show, though, have got to be David Tennant, Jane Slavin and Joe Sims, who put in fantastic performances throughout. Add to that some great direction from Ken Bentley, who does excellent work at directing this despite the inconvenience of national lockdowns and remote recordings, and you get a boxset that is definitely far more than just the sum of its parts. Almost perfect.

Who Review

Ken Bentley’s direction and John Dorney’s script start Dalek Universe off with the perfect bang, leaving us with a cliffhanger that blew social media away. 10/10.

Indie Mac User

Dalek Universe Volume One is a phenomenal release. It sets up so much and has so many possibilities! I can only prepare for more mind-blowing reveals and twists to come. And I can’t wait! Allons-y!

Temple of Geek

A hell of a fine start. 9/10

Sci-Fi Bulletin

The House of Kingdom is a fine hour of audio drama. It may not reach the same highs are the opener, but few do. It’s still a good story with some needed character development for Anya and a bit of fun with the Mechanoids. Dalek Universe 1 turned out to be an extremely strong box set overall!

Hogan Reviews

The start of an epic, multi-part series like Dalek Universe from Big Finish is always exciting. The scale and ambition of sagas such as Doom Coalition or The Syndicate Master Plan takes storytelling possibilities to another level, and seeing the Doctor and companions face up to an ever-expanding threat makes for thrilling listening.

We Made This

Should you buy this box set? Yes, yes, one hundred percent yes. It's quite probably the most fun I've had with a Big Finish audiodrama in a while - you need to grab it before you get THOSE twists spoiled and before the next box set debuts.

The Dreamcage

As opening box sets go, Dalek Universe 1 offers a lot: super characters, lots of drama, and the beginning of an expanded era for David Tennant's Doctor. There is something for fans of both classic series and new series Doctor Who.
