I spent a substantial amount of time and money organising a lap dock and cables since Picademy showed how portable and accessible this would make the Pi. (I have the B+)
After all bits were in the house last night...it won't work!
I know the lap dock works, as direct connection from power to Pi and the micro female to male HDMI adapter combined produces the required result. However, with the cables connected as displayed....nothing. It is also fully charged.

I am not sure if one cable is faulty, should I be returning them, making a trip to Maplins? Or am I just missing something obvious?
