Anti-Genesis Of The Daleks

I recently finished listening to 'The War Master: Anti-Genesis' and I have to say, I thought it was a really good story, brilliantly twisting the events of 'Genesis Of The Daleks', as the Master murders Davros and usurps his position as the Daleks' creator. Derek Jacobi really shines as the Master here, as does Mark Gatiss' 'Unbound' incarnation, who gets recruited by the Dalek Time Strategist to put the timelines back on track. There are also some great guest characters, such as Franchi Webb who plays the tragic Time Lord soldier, Lamarius, and Seán Carlsen makes a great return as CIA coordinator Narvin.

If I have one slight criticism, I'm not sure the events on depicted on Skaro quite tallies with the chain of events established in the 2006 series 'I, Davros'. But then, since the whole premise of this story is history being distorted, I think I can live with any continuity inconsistencies.I also thought the 'Unbound' Master's escape at the end felt a bit rushed and confused, but I do like that the possibility of his returning in future audios has been left open.

All in all, this is probably my favourite 'Time War' story done by Big Finish, and I strongly recommend it to anyone who has yet to listen to it.
