    Just from the title, I have a feeling that this has something to do with Genesis of the Daleks, and that the Master might go back in time to alter the Daleks’ development in some way…

    Barnes and Briggs are the absolute worst writers in fandom. Disappointing.

    Is this the planned 4th series of The War Master series or something else? I know the one where he goes up against the 8th Doctor is #3 in the series but is this #4?

    Either way I really need to listen to these and the 8th Doctor Time War prequel series. Listening to John Hurt as The War Doctor for twelve episodes was my first venture into Big Finish audios and it was absolutely incredible. I wish he was still around to do more. He became my favorite Doctor through his episodes! Makes me wonder if they re-used some of his stories and modified them a bit for The War Master.

    I wonder if we’ll see the Cult of Skaro appear and see how they escaped with the Genesis arc.

    Does the “new daleks” chapter constitute a genesis of the bronze dalek design?
    Someone please get the elephant in the room dealt with!
