This review is from: Doctor Who: Dalek War, Stories 67-68 (Frontier in Space / Planet of the Daleks) (DVD)
Pertwee has always been a favorite of mine. His take on the Doctor was utterly unique. The only true action hero Doctor. Loved him then, and love him now. Even with the series resurrected, it seems that the Doctors thus far(Eccleston and Tennant) have lifted elements from Troughton, Baker, and even Hartnell's run, but no one has attempted to lift any elements of Pertwee's portrayal. Wonder why that is? Because only Pertwee can do Pertwee. These episodes showcase his talents brilliantly, and the baddies contained in the stories are typical for his era. This is a must have, not just for fans of the Daleks, but for any Who fan. The series at its very best, by one of the best to ever play the role. Watch with your kids. Watch, and be a kid all over again!

The best doctor, the best Master, the best Unit troops, The best episodes with good plots and glamorous assistants. When will they come out with the Daemons?

Jon Pertwee was my favorite Doctor, too...along with Nicholas Courtney, Katy Manning, Roger Delgado and Barry Letts...what a superb era!
