Fourth Doctor Adventures
The Wrath of the Iceni Trail of the White Worm

Energy of the Daleks was the fourth story in the first series of Fourth Doctor Adventures.

Publishers summary Edit

The Doctor and Leela find themselves in the middle of London at the time of a new energy crisis. The GlobeSphere Corporation seems to have all the answers — but several thousand protesters beg to differ.

What is the connection between the National Gallery and a base on the Moon? Has radical thinker Damien Stephens simply sold out, or does he have a more sinister agenda?

The Doctor has detected a mysterious energy reading. Could it be that the most evil creatures in the universe have returned to claim ultimate victory once and for all?

References Edit

  • In preparation for their trip to London in the 21st century, Leela has followed the Doctor's advice and changes into clothing appropriate to the era. However, she finds high heels impossible to walk in, so the Doctor tells her that she should wear trainers instead.
  • On the day before the Doctor and Leela's arrival, a holographic horse appeared outside the HMS Belfast in order to promote the Grand National.
  • The Doctor had intended to take Leela on a trip to London in 2015. However, the TARDIS overshot by a decade and materialised on 30 January 2025 instead.
  • The Doctor describes the Internet as "a 21st-century human obsession".
  • There is a major protest in Trafalgar Square, led by Jack Coulson, against the GlobeSphere Corporation, the founder and CEO of which is the technology pioneer Damien Stephens. After the energy crisis worsened in 2021, Stephens had vast solar panel fields built on the Moon, which are intended to channel energy directly to Earth. The energy transfer was due to begin on 31 January 2025 from the GlobeSphere Moonbase. However, Stephens has seemingly made a deal with the energy companies and various governments, which has delayed the commencement of the energy transfer process until 2025. GlobeSphere HQ is the former National Gallery.
  • Stephens and Jack attended the University of Durham together. Jack is surprised that it was Stephens who discovered the way to transfer the maximum level of energy from the Moon to Earth; Jack was the scientific genius, whereas Stephens was the radical. During the height of the energy crisis, Stephens' mother had died of exposure in her house, as the energy company had switched off all the power.
  • The Doctor and Jack are able to access GlobeSphere HQ as there was an access tunnel built under the National Gallery during World War II through which the paintings were to be removed in the event of bombs damaging the building. The Doctor claims that only he and the Prime Minister Winston Churchill were aware of its existence.
  • Leela is captured by the Robomen, surgically modified humans who are controlled by the Daleks, who were posing as GlobeSphere security guards. The Daleks determine that Leela is a time traveller as they are able to detect traces of chronon particles.
  • The Daleks have installed a transmat beam in Stephens' office in GlobeSphere HQ with a direct link to his bed on the GlobeSphere Moonbase.

Notes Edit

  • This is the first Fourth Doctor story in performed Doctor Who to feature the Daleks since the television story Destiny of the Daleks in 1979. Furthermore, it is the first performed Fourth Doctor story to feature the Daleks which does not also feature their creator, Davros.
  • This audio drama was recorded on 22 April 2011. This was the first audio drama that Tom Baker recorded for Big Finish Productions.
