On board the star cruiser Amorist, the outcome of
the war between the human race and the Dalek Empire hangs
precariously in the balance. Salus Kade knows what he has
to do, but has General Landen told him the whole truth about
Susan Mendes? Before his mission is completed, Kade makes
a number of shocking discoveries, which turn his assumptions
on their heads...
notion of the technologically aided Fearless becoming no better
than the Daleks (which I first noted in my review of Part
reaches its apex here, as we realise the extent to which Agnes
Landen (Maureen OBrien) has created a monster in the
shape of Salus Kade (Noel Clarke). As with the Daleks, its
not the battle-suit thats the problem as such but rather
the mind of the being inside it. Here we discover that Landens
engineering of a situation in order to create the emotionally
scarred creature of hate that is Kade is arguably as ruthless
as Davross genetic manipulation and mental conditioning
of the Dalek species.
thats not the biggest revelation in this instalment.
The one concerning Susan Mendes (Sarah Mowat) comes as far
more of a shock, or at least it did to me.
those of you (myself included) who have been a bit mystified
as to why writer/director/Dalek Emperor Nicholas Briggs has
set The Fearless during his first series of Dalek
Empire rather than moving the storyline forward in time,
Briggs explains his reasoning in the interviews that appear
at the end of this CD. He states that it has always been his
intention to revisit the timeline of that first series. He
likens his approach to the genre of the Second World War narrative:
we all know the outcome of that conflict, and what happened
to Hitler, but that doesnt stop people from telling
new stories set within this already well-documented era.
Davros and Landen, Briggs has a powerful creation on his hands.
But will he write more series set in this timeframe? You can
bet he will. Yes, he would do it. That power would
set him up above the gods, and through the Daleks, he shall
have that power!
