The TARDIS inexplicably takes the Doctor, Tegan and Turlough to the planet Earth, present-day (meaning 1984) London, England to be exact. But it's a trap set up by the Daleks.

Lots of things are going on. The Daleks want to free Davros from his suspended animation prison ship, orbiting Earth (in the future, but Daleks can travel time, too). (Davros had been arrested after losing to the Doctor, played by Tom Baker, in Doctor Who: Destiny of the Daleks (Story 104).)

Throughout time, the Daleks have had a love-hate relationship with their insane creator, but right now they need Davros. The Movellans, a race of androids, have created a virus that kills Daleks, so the Daleks need Davros to find a cure.

That's in the future. In the current day, the Daleks create doppleganger human androids, to take over powerful positions on Earth. In addition, they plan to duplicate the Doctor and his companions and use them to assassinate the Gallifreyan High Council, hence the trap. But what if you create a robot duplicate so good at acting human that it can fool other humans, and then it continues on to start to feel human itself?

This is not a favorite episode but it's not a terrible one, either. The part I most do not appreciate is when the Doctor picks up a gun and shoots an android doppleganger. [A Comment pointed out that I am incorrect; It is a mutant Dalek that Dr Who shoots.] That just isn't the classic doctor I know and love. Tegan calls him on this violence, and the Doctor muses, "It seems I must mend my ways". On the other hand, the Doctor has the chance to kill Davros, ending his terrorizing once and for all, but cannot do it.

For those who may be misled by an older review. Disc 1 contains the Two 45 Minunte Episodes that was originally aired in ENGLAND (not America), due to scheduling conflicts with that year's winter Olympics. Disc 2 contains the more traditional Four 24 minute episodes that were generally not viewed at all (other than some American markets that pre-bought the rights before the literally last minute format change scramble). There really isn't much of a difference between the two other than minor edits, especially for the two cliffhangers for Ep. 1 and 3, and for SE purposes, Disc 2's four episodes has Peter Davison's audio commentary, which I have come to quite like over his three seasons.

As for the story itself, it's a great follow on to the somewhat disappointing earlier adventure, DESTINY OF THE DALEKS (Story 104) with the 4th Doctor. Although most American viewers never realized it, the supporting cast is quite star-studded with well known British figures, the director Matthew Robinson pulling out all the stops to get as many big names as he could. The resulting superlative acting (if not the death acting of the extras) really shine. The Daleks are a little shabby looking, but the general costuming, right down to the Dalek-esque helmets of the human troopers, and set design of a shabby, old prison ship is quite good. And death lurks at every corner... not kidding. Having THE highest on-scene body count, RESURRECTION OF THE DALEKS still holds the record even after the far grimmer tenures of the 9th, 10th and 11th Doctors! Pretty action packed, and for a series that tended to rather poorly in action depiction, director Robinson handles it very well.

When I buy a Doctor Who dvd, I don't expect dazzling special effects. What I DO want is solid acting and a good story. And I can say without doubt that this title delivered. A great time to be had for all Doc Who fans.

I bought this partially because I'm a completist and this finishes up my Five Doctor run, and partially because it's a damn good story, full of suspense and tragedy, and the departure of a companion I initially didn't like, but grew to love. I like that, after all she's been through, The Daleks are the one thing that finally drives Tegan away. Five's been fighting them for so long, I doubt he even things about what they look like to an outsider. And Turlough, who's an alien himself, and who, as we find out in the next episode, has been through his own traumatic experiences, just takes them in stride as more of The Doctor's strangeness. Her departure is one of the most human and heartbreaking, scenes in the episode, and it's also one of those times that you see how truly alien The Doctor is. He's saddened, yes, but he can't quit understand why now. The Doctor tends to act so human most of the time, it's fascinating when you get these little glimpses into who he rally is. For him, this is SOP. He's been fighting these things across the universe for as long as he can remember. He hates them, because he's only too aware of the damage they can do, but he also knows they have to fought and stopped again and again, and that it's going to fall to him (and whoevers with him) to stop them.That they might find this traumatizing and want to leave never really occurs to him. Not because he's bad, but because when you get right down to it, he's an alien. This is what he does. And while he knows there are going to be casualties and people will die and leave, he never really stops to think about those moments.
