Import from the Netherlands which plays in English no subtitles. SUMMARY: Those dastardly Daleks are at it again, devising a devilish trick to play on Doctor Who (Peter Davison) and his intrepid band of time-travellers. In the 20th century, Davros, leader of the Daleks, is about to reenter the fold of time. He plans on destroying everything in his path--even his own subjects! Of course, only the Doctor can stop the sinister creature.

The writer of Resurrection of the Daleks, Eric Saward, stated that his story was the worst one in the programmes history. This is far from true. Resurrection boasts some excellent scenes, an engaging if somewhat convoluted storyline and good pace direction from Matthew Robinson. Broadcast as part of Peter Davison's final and best season, Resurrection never pauses for breath, and is a real contrast to other stories from this period such as Terminus and Four to Doomsday which seemed slow moving and padded out. This probably makes it more appealing to viewers today who want to see fast moving television. The dark and gritty adventure has an air of gloominess about it, from the opening scene in which a group of escaped prisoners from the far future, are ruthlessly murdered by Police officers, in the derelict docklands of 1980s London, to the final scene in which long serving companion Tegan unhappily works away from her life with The Doctor. The docklands of London are a central location for this story, prior to their redevelopment as luxury apartment blocks. Here they present an image of a decaying, haunted area of London, abandoned for nearly a century. An ideal location then for The Daleks to hide some canister's of a virus, which has infected their race. Meanwhile in the far future, The Daleks rescue their creator Davros from his prison on a space station, with the intention of getting him to develop an antidote to this virus. The Doctor and his companions, having been dragged in the Tardis to modern day London via the Daleks time corridor, come across the lone survivor of the earlier massacre Stein, but is he all he seems, and why are The Daleks so intent on capturing The Doctor.Read more ›

Format: DVD
This is what the 1980s turned Doctor Who into. All of a sudden, after all the puns and clowning around we have this story, in which pretty much everyone dies and a pervading sense of hope is hard to find. Yet isn't that what the Daleks are about?
There's a moment here when the Doctor reaches the overrun space station, picks up a weapon and uncomfortably announces his intentions to kill Davros. This is a fine moment, both in terms of acting on Davison's part but also in Doctor Who chronology. The Daleks could easily have slipped into self-parody after two decades as TV's biggest bad guys, yet this injection of nihilism and fatalism reaffirms them as the baddest of the bad.
In terms of production values, they only get slightly creaky on the space station, but never to the point where it shatters the illusion of reality. This is an absorbing story, written and acted by people who totally believe in what they're doing. Those who accuse the series of being TV's answer to a Christmas panto need only watch this particular story.

Format: DVD
Sciptwriter Eric Saward was under a lot of pressure writing this adventure: he had a prickly relationship with series producer John Nathan-Turner, Who had lost viewers and fans had been severely disappointed in the Daleks' last outing in "Destiny of the Daleks".Therefore it is understandible that this effort tries far too hard for its own good.Its convoluted plot and hysterical pace unfortunately doesn't suit the Daleks' strengths: brooding menace and the prospect of sudden, violent death.

From its grim openning where a ragbag of slaves are gunned down this is an action-packed but rather charmless romp. The high body count, gunfire and the use of disturbing flesh-eating chemical weaponry reveal the show's insecurity due to, and therefore subsequent embracing of, the mid 80's fashion for dark, disturbing sci-fi. This the age that gave birth to "The Terminator" and Who is at heart a very dark show but not really an action series and the clumsy combat scenes show this all too well. In addition, Saward was a keen admirer of Phillip Hinchliffe's tenure as series producer and scriptwriter Robert Holmes' contributions to the Who canon both of whom liked to send little viewing tykes running to hide behind the sofa.The grim tone cries out for black humour but none is present. Molloy's portrayal of Davros is great but this particular adventure is really a waste of the old schemer and Davidson's Doctor looks rather out of place in what is really a souped-up Blake's 7 story. Rodney Bewes is poorly miscast as a slave with a secret and the ridiculous helmets worn by the Dalek troops invokes a crude and obscene insult that is very popular in today's Britain.
