"Planet of the Daleks" features the infamous Daleks using a jungle planet to raise a secret army of conquest. Their enemies from Skaro, the Thals, have followed them there to stop their evil plans. Interestingly, the Thals are a peace-loving people at this stage of their development, who have to put pacifism away to thwart the Daleks. The Daleks are almost ready to release their army of tens of thousands when the Doctor and Jo arrive and begin to aid the Thal party in their secret mission against impossible odds! The setting of the jungle planet for a Dalek story is particularly well realized for Doctor Who, and has some nice effects. The Daleks are a favorite enemy and there are a number of morals to this story that are explored as it unfolds.
The special effects for this story are pretty decent, but I didn't particularly like the CGI-heavy two part-fictionalized commentary that tried too hard to explore the meaning of the episodes in their time. Otherwise, there are the usual DVD extras and interviews from a Third Doctor episode. All in all this is a pretty good boxed duo, which I recommend to get a good perspective on the Third Doctor's off-earth adventures.
