Dalek Empire 2
- The Human Factor
(Nicholas Briggs)

 This is the second story and was released in August 2001. It has been written and directed by Nicholas Briggs and was recorded on 3rd June 2001.

 In line with the second instalment's title, "The Human Factor", the cover design, by Clayton Hickman, has a human face to it this time, in the shape of actress Sarah Mowat, who plays one of the mini-series' leading characters, Susan Mendes.

 With Susan Mendes captured and enslaved by the Daleks on Planet Vega VI she finds herself repeatedly being interrogated by the Dalek Supreme. Near breaking point she craves hope and knows it is the key to survival for her race. After saving the life of Kalendorf a friendship between them develops. Kalendorf though knows the Daleks of old and does not trust their motives even when Suz apparently convinces them that their slaves need food and rest.

 Meanwhile Alby Brook, Having escaped from Vega VI just before the Daleks invaded, knows in his heart that he must find Suz again. He meets journalist Gordon Pellan who has found himself onboard the cruise ship Aquitania which is being attacked by the Daleks. Thanks to Alby he is still alive but now finds himself tagging along on Alby's love-sick search for Suz.

 Disobeying the orders of the Space Security Service Alby heads back to the Vega system in hot pursuit on the trail of Suz. The Daleks though have now transported her, along with Kalendorf, to the Garrazone system for an unknown purpose…

 Alby Brook and Gordon Pellan are following the best information they have to locate Suz in Dalek-infested space. But what is it the Daleks want with her?

 On the slave planet Guria, Alby discovers Suz is already gaining a reputation as something of an angel of mercy. Could it be that she is now working for the Daleks?

 But as Suz and Kalendorf travel from planet to planet a murmur of defiance is growing… 'Death to the Daleks… Death to the Daleks…'

Dalek Empire
By Nicholas Briggs
 "Exterminate! Exterminate!" Doctor Who's deadliest foes, the dreaded Daleks, are back in their own thrilling series of audio adventures!

 The Earth Alliance seems powerless to stop the Dalek invasion of the galaxy.

 Enslaved by the Daleks, along with billions of others, Susan Mendes and Kalendorf must find a way to turn the tide against these metallic monsters...

 …or the galaxy will be lost forever!

On the Inside Cover:


 Since the Daleks invaded the Vega System, their advance has been unstoppable.

 Regrettably, our strategy has been to fall back and regroup, not engaging the Daleks unless absolutely necessary.

 This has meant that very nearly an eighth of the entire Milky Way has already fallen to the Daleks.

 But here, my fellow officers, here in the Gurian System we will finally make our stand...
