That said, this isn't a perfect episode. The climax features a battle between two Dalek sects, battling over bloodline purity in a manner that later came up repeatedly during Russell T. Davies' run as head writer for the TV series. Great concept, except that it comes across as primarily visual. We get lots of "Whizz! Bang! Pew!" sound effects, but then the Doctor has to tell us how things wrapped up, because in the overwhelmingly visual world of fight scenes and crowd scenes (and this climax is both), all we have is an admittedly well-mixed batch of sound.
As the second half of a pilot for the radio series that emerged from Doctor Who's TV revival, this episode is pretty decent. It establishes the primary sources of tension that will, presumably, recur through the radio series. Particularly the personality conflict between Lucie and the Doctor: for perhaps the first time, the Doctor and his Companion basically don't like one another. It also establishes themes of identity, played out by Hayley "Agent Carter" Atwell, at an early career stage here, playing more than one character, one atop another.Read more ›
