Editorial Reviews

The TARDIS is dragged down a time corridor, forcing the Doctor, Tegan and Turlough to materialize in a disused part of London in 1984. The corridor links Earth with a battle cruiser in the future that contains the Doctor's oldest enemy - the Daleks. Having lost the war with the Movellans, only one person can now help the evil race. With shocking consequences for the Doctor, it is time for the Daleks to resurrect their creator Davros.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun! November 13, 2012

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good-By Tegan, and I Don't Blame you for Leaving March 10, 2013

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.

The following review was written by my 10-year-old son:

In 1963, they created the Daleks. Everyone enjoyed the killer robots. I enjoy episodes with Daleks. The Resurrection of the Daleks was barely a dalek episode. It was a Davros episode. Daleks are better without Davros. You don't focus on the robots you have loved since 1963 in Davros episodes. You focus on the crazy, madman/psychopath that you've loved since 1974. I had heard Davros screaming in my dreams. And at one part of the episode, I couldn't even understand what Davros was saying because he was yelling like crazy! One last bad thing before we move onto the only good parts of this episode. At one part it was some guy saying "The daleks are using Sphinzes' laboratory!". Here's what I thought when I heard that. Who is Sphinzes? Good Parts: It was a nice and touching moment when Tegan left. Also, I like spies. And Dalek spies are even better. Still, Revelation of the Daleks I think will be a nice Davros episode. Now that's my mystery. Well that's it. Best wishes and goodbye Tegan!
