It’s been a year since Philippa “Flip” Jackson found herself transported by Tube train to battle robot mosquitoes on a bizarre alien planet in the company of a Time Lord known only as “the Doctor”.
Lightning never strikes twice, they say. Only now there’s a flying saucer whooshing over the top of the night bus taking her home. Inside: the Doctor, with another extraterrestrial menace on his tail — the Daleks, and their twisted creator Davros!
But while Flip and the fugitive Doctor struggle to beat back the Daleks’ incursion into 21st century London, Davros’s real plan is taking shape nearly 200 years in the past, on the other side of the English Channel. At the battle of Waterloo…
- The Curse of Davros is the first story in the 2012 Sixth Doctor audio trilogy.
- After her flat is destroyed by the Daleks, Flip laments that she will have to move back in her with mother and her boyfriend Nigel whom she considers “creepy.”
- Davros orders a Dalek to self destruct. Given that he and the Supreme Dalek are close to it when it does, this must not be a very violent self destruction.
- The Doctor tells Flip that Davros’ life support chariot does not feature a button with which his life support can be deactivated. This would suggest that Davros has redesigned the chair since he first met the Fourth Doctor on Skaro. (Genesis of the Daleks)
- The Doctor asks Davros if he was “expecting someone else.” (The Caves of Androzani)
- Napoleon Bonaparte is described as having “a genius for war”. (The Daleks’ Master Plan)
