Big Finish has made plenty of details available for Dark Eyes 2 (out in February 2014) – check the product page if you want the full story. If you’re unsure just be aware it contains the Eighth Doctor, Daleks, the Master and lots more!
I have summarised below and added some thoughts…
The four parts
First the key points from the four parts:
- The Traitor by Nick Briggs: Liv Chenka is helping slaves under the Dalek regime on Nixyce VII. There are the inevitable freedom fighters but the Eighth Doctor has his own agenda
- The White Room by Alan Barnes: Molly o’Sullivan is back in London trying to help people but dealing with several mysteries. Can the Doctor get the Surgeon General to give some answers
- Time’s Horizon by Matt Fitton: The Doctor and Molly encounter Liv Chenka on the cryo-ship Orpheus. What is the ancient force on the very edge of creation?
- Eyes of the Master by Matt Fitton: The Doctor, Liv and Molly go back to the 1970s and a new timeline for the Ides Institute (a thread from Dark Eyes 1). Why have Molly’s dark eyes become the centre of a plot to control all life in the universe!
Nick has relinquished control and we have yet to hear how this will work. Nick still did all the direction. I like several elements from the synopsis including Liv coming back from Robophobia (and I suggested that she should be a companion ages ago!), not joining all the characters until near the end and the Master. Adding in a detail from the first boxset is also interesting to me and I really can’t wait to hear more.
