The Doctor is back in another installment of the Time Lord Victorious multimedia project, and he is working WITH the Daleks. After being abducted by the Daleks at the end of the last installment, the Doctor decides to team up with their Time Squad to find out what is causing disturbances in time, which have led to massive changes in planets and civilizations across the cosmos. Specifically, the Daleks are interested in investigating the Wraxian civilization for two main reasons: they shouldn’t exist, and they possess a weapon of great power that threatens all species in existence.
This audiobook moves the Time Lord Victorious story forward more than any other previous release. It does a good job of tying together previous entries in the series that seemed incredibly disparate up to this point while also setting up what seems to be a more interesting future story. The Enemy of My Enemy also works great as a standalone story. The Daleks were menacing, as usual, but they also possessed a level of deviousness that was fun to listen to. Nicholas Briggs did an excellent job giving each Dalek a distinctive voice and personality. I particularly like the Strategist and have enjoyed following him through different stories in this event. Paul McGann was a treat as the doctor, which I expected. I particularly enjoyed his delivery of dialogue related to the question, “What is life?” Overall, this was a well-acted, straightforward story that is a pretty strong addition to the Time Lord Victorious story arc, which earns it a rating of 4 out of 5 stars.
