Recap: Big Finish Doctor Who NEDAS 1 E 2 Blood Of The Daleks Part Two
With Lucie captured by the Daleks, she's forced to broadcast a description of the Doctor so he can be found. A giant ponce with stupid hippie hair and a ridiculous coat, about the same age as her dad, she comments.

Martez turns out to have been making Daleks out of humans. These new Daleks quickly go into existential crisis and start a war with the regular ones. Since the regular ones are weak and on the verge of dying, they needed the help of the humans, which explains their unusual guile.

The human Daleks quickly dispose of Martez, who actually manages to be surprised at that. The Doctor decides to side with the regular Daleks if it helps kill the new ones (after all, having one race of Daleks in the galaxy is bad enough). An all-out war begins, in which Tom Cardwell's plan turns out to have consisted of just killing everything. The Doctor tells him he's happy that was part of the plan, because he'd really hate to think that anyone would do something that monumentally stupid by accident.

With the Daleks eventually vanquised (and with some liberal Angst from the Doctor when the Daleks remind him of his own past), the president takes responsibility for her actions. She promises not to be so trusting of helpful aliens in the future.

Acting-President Klint announces to the survivors survivors of Red Rocket Rising that they have been offered help. The transmission cuts as she says the name of their saviours: "Tel—". As of "Human Resources", this is confirmed to have been "Telos", the home of the Cybermen.

A female assassin named the Headhunter receives a call about Lucie and merrily goes out to track her down. Lucie seems to have a connection to the Time Lords, and she can't remember a thing. The Time Lords have also helpfully put a shield around her home year before saddling the Doctor with her. He's got no other choice for now than to put up with her.

Tropes

  • Absolute Xenophobe: The Daleks, of course.
  • Always Chaotic Evil: The Doctor tries to appeal to the dying Dalek Supreme, knowing it won't work. Long experience has taught him that the Daleks are irredeemable, a fact he shares with Martez, warning her that her Daleks will be no different.
  • Colony Drop: How the Daleks wreck the environment on the planet, by steering an asteroid into the planet.
  • Conspiracy Theorist: Tom Cardwell. He's largely correct.
  • Downer Ending: The Daleks may have been defeated but the planet is still in ruins and it is implied the Cybermen are about to arrive on the planet.
  • From Bad to Worse: Red Rocket Rising is in ruins and the survivors are forced to rebuild. How can it get any worse? A Cyberman invasion, that's how.
  • History Repeats: The Doctor has seen the creation of the Daleks before, and regrets not averting it when he had the chance. He won't sit by and watch it happen again.
  • Master Race: The Daleks are so committed to this vision of themselves that even fellow Daleks created by Martez are deemed not pure enough.
  • Tinfoil Hat
