"Russell had heard the audio drama I'd written for Big Finish, about a lone Dalek being tortured in a fascistic English Empire. Luckily for me, the idea of bringing back the Daleks in that unpredictable way, minimalist and defeated, really resonated with him - and even more luckily for me, he wanted to give me the chance to write it. That was pretty much all we took from "Jubilee'", though. "Jubilee" was a huge black comedy about the way as fans we've forgotten the darker metaphor of what Daleks are through merchandising - it's a story that relies completely upon overfamiliarity with the Daleks. And the humor is very sick - it's very definitely intended for the exclusively adult audience who still cared about Doctor Who in its wilderness years."
