I was amused to note that we begin with convicts on a spaceship which they manage to take control of and bring to another planet where they have to do a deal with the local baddies - the second episode of Blake's Seven reworks this with surprisingly few changes. Later parts of the plot, with the Daleks' human stooge reviving them, were recycled by David Whitaker in the first Troughton story, Power of the Daleks. On top of providing the source material for those two excellent later pieces, Curse of the Daleks has a rather good 'who's the traitor' plot, and Nick Briggs does the best linking narration for any of the three plays. Recommended. ( )
