The Fourth Doctor and his companion Leela (Louise Jameson) 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.

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?

For Tom, Energy of the Daleks was the first time since 1979's Destiny of the Daleks that he'd gone hat-brim to eyestalk with everyone's favourite malevolent pepperpots - but for Louise, it was a first! This is Leela's opening encounter with the Daleks and she's not going to find it a pleasant experience. And speaking of unpleasant experiences, she's not quite ready for the 21st century either. But then, is the 21st century ready for Leela?

Guest stars include: Mark Benton (TV Doctor Who story Rose, Waterloo Road, Land Girls, The Street, Northern Lights, Strictly Come Dancing), Alex Lowe (The Late Edition, The Thick of It, Lead Balloon and Peep Show), TV Sontaran, Dan Starkey, giving life to both Kevin Winston and a Roboman, as well as Nicholas Briggs as the Daleks.

The Fourth Doctor Adventures, which star Tom Baker are available to buy in CD/download format from the Big Finish website.
