 "Attention all humans! You are now subjects of the Dalek Empire!" The largest Dalek fleet ever assembled begins its invasion of the galaxy…

 Dalek Empire is a story of human emotion and galactic intrigue set against the most destructive conflict the galaxy has ever known.

 Released, by Big Finish Productions during 2001, these four Doctorless Dalek stories have been written and directed by Nicholas Briggs. It is planned that these stories will evoke some of the spirit of the fondly remembered Dalek annuals and strips of the Sixties and Seventies. All four stories will be closely linked with many of the same characters appearing in each story. The first chapter was released in June, the second in August and the third in November. The final instalment was due to be released in December but was finally released in January 2002. A further series of stories is being planned for 2003.

 On Sunday 6th May 2001 "Dalek Empire - Invasion of the Daleks" was recorded. Written and directed by Nicholas Briggs this story features some returning voices from Big Finish Production's ever-expanding repertory company of actors. Gareth Thomas guest-stars as the mysterious Kalendorf. Best known for his role in Blake's 7, Gareth more recently made his Big Finish debut as Lord Tamworth in the Eighth Doctor audio drama, "Storm Warning" that was released in January 2001.

 Gareth is joined by Sarah Mowat who plays planetary geologist Susan Mendes. Sarah previously starred in the very first Big Finish Doctor Who adventure, "The Sirens of Time", as five different characters who were in fact all the same character. Mark McDonnell completes the team of three regular cast members of the Dalek Empire quartet of plays. Mark portrays the slightly less than dynamic space security agent, Alby Brook. Mark featured in "The Fearmonger" and is appearing in the next season of Paul McGann plays that are due in 2002.

 As stated by Nicholas Briggs 'The characters in the series are not in control of the situation. They've been overrun. The Dalek invasion starts and the Daleks are actually winning'.

Susan Mendes

Alby Brook  ALBERT BROOK ('Alby') - Earth Alliance Space Security Service operative. Ex-Army. Criminal record (DETAILS SUPPRESSED - CODE 894). Questionable attitude to authority. Cynical. Unorthodox thinker. Unsuitable for routine assignments. Operates best when unrestricted by micro-management.

Gordon Pellan is played by John Wadmore.

 MIRANA - Interplanetary Police Officer 274. Currently in pursuit of a law-breaker whose motives are unorthodox and are even more intriguing. But if she solves this crime and gets her man, she may find herself in far more trouble than she expects.
