We Are The Daleks was the two hundred and first story in Big Finish's monthly range. It featured the Seventh Doctor and the Daleks, as well as the return of Melanie Bush who last appeared with the Seventh Doctor nearly a decade earlier in 2006's Red. In the intervening years, Mel had appeared in multiple audio stories with the Sixth Doctor.

Publisher's summary Edit

The year is 1987, and Britain is divided. In Bradford, strikers are picketing and clashing with the police. In the city of London, stockbrokers are drinking champagne and politicians are courting the super-rich. The mysterious media mogul Alek Zenos, head of the Zenos Corporation, is offering Britain an economic miracle. His partners wish to invest – and their terms are too good to refuse.

While the Doctor investigates Warfleet, a new computer game craze that is sweeping the nation, Mel goes undercover to find out the truth about Zenos's partners.

The Daleks have a new paradigm. They intend to conquer the universe using economic power. The power of the free market!

The Doctor Edit

  • The Doctor informs the Daleks that he has many names, including Ka Faraq Gatri, the Bringer of Darkness, the Destroyer of Worlds, and the Oncoming Storm.
  • The Doctor refers to the fact that he defeated the Daleks using the Human Factor during his second incarnation.

Mel Bush Edit

  • Mel claims that she belongs to Time and Related Disciplines Incorporated.
  • Serena Paget has a car phone. She is surprised that Mel has a mobile phone.
  • The Doctor believes that Mel is the best computer hacker there is.

United Kingdom Edit

Skaro Edit

  • Niles Bunbury believes that Skaro looks like "something from a Dan Dare annual."
  • Thal refugees from Skaro inhabit the world of Callico Nine, a Dalek slave world. The only Thals who remain on Skaro are slaves.

Notes Edit

  • This story was recorded on 5 and 6 January 2015 at The Moat Studios.
  • The story makes use of pre-title sequences, a format used occasionally by Big Finish and the television series during the original run in the 1980s.
  • It is noted in the CD extras that this story is now a "historical" story in the same way Remembrance of the Daleks was and a similar amount of time existed between the publish date and date this story.
