The Doctor and Peri arrive on Necros to attend the funeral of an old friend of who has recently died. However, Tranquil Repose is not all it seems and an attempt is made on the Doctor's life. Soon the Doctor comes face to face with the Great Healer, only to discover it is none other than Davros, the creator of the Daleks, intent on rebuilding the Dalek race decimated by the Movellans.

First shown in 1985, Revelation of the Daleks was the final story of season 22. By this stage it already been announced that the following series would not be made, with the programme being cancelled just weeks before the first story of the next season was due to commence filming. It was only thanks to the public outcry and several newspaper campaigns with their save Doctor Who protests, that the programme was not cancelled outright. It was then announced would return after an 18 month hiatus.
Different reasons have been cited for the reasons why the programme was suspended. Michael Grade, the then BBC controller, stated that at the time that series had become excessively violent, and storylines had become tired.
Although it is true that the series had become over reliant on maintaining continuity with the past, in particularly the opening story of season 22 Attack of the Cybermen, this season actually contained many original and interesting stories. Vengeance on Varos was a serial that examined the impact of violent television on a planet in the future, Mark of the Rani introduced a new female renegade timelord and was set during the industrial revolution, a period the programme had not visited before, and Revelation of the Daleks was a superbly dark story set on a funeral planet, with a terrific undertone of black humour. Perhaps because of the cancellation crisis, Revelation was not acclaimed by the fans as maybe it would have been had it been shown in a different less controversial period. Nevertheless time has been kind to season 22, and Revelation in particular is now seen by many as a classic, and alongside Caves of Androzani ranks as the best serial of the mid 1980s.

I can't review this story because I have now had 3 copies of it sent to me and ALL 3 have exactly the same fault on them. The story gets to a certain point and then starts to loop back on itself over and over again. First time it loops is at a point where two people are running down a corridor from 2 different angles - so it takes a while before you realise there is a problem as there is always so much running down corridors in Who. If you manage to get past this first loop (which I only did on my 3rd copy) you continue to meet many FURTHER loops as you go along - each one looping back further and further each time. If anyone has managed to buy a good copy of this DVD I'd like to know where they got it from so I can get a copy there as well.

Typically, REVELATION has never been a favourite with most fans. About the nicest thing they're likely to say about it is "it's the best Colin Baker story", which is damning with faint praise as Colin Baker is never going to win the acclaim of say, Pertwee or the other Mr Baker. Nor is the short list of TV Colin Baker stories (broadcast originally between 1984 and 1986) usually held up as a bright beacon of TV excellence. So basically this DVD release is going to be met with a large amount of indifference or even scorn, and I want to say right here how much of a shame this is! REVELATION should not be filed away as an example of 1980's tat, but instead should be held up as one of DR WHO's masterpieces...yes that's right: MASTERPIECES!

Not only is the serial the best Colin Baker story, it's the best in the whole of the 1980's. Only 1984's THE CAVES OF ANDROZANI (also directed by REVELATION's superb Graeme Harper) can boast a production, a script, a cast and an emotional impact this impressive. But where ANDROZANI had a dodgy "Magma Beast" monster, REVELATION has no such shortcomings. There is not one prop, one set design, one special effect that really embarrasses, and when one considers the tiny budget that Harper and his team had to work with, this should make our fanboy (and girl) jaws drop. But of course we're not going to because received wisdom tells us that it's not as good as TOMB OF THE CYBERMEN, or PYRAMIDS OF MARS, or anyone of a dozen other stories that time after time gets cited in polls as "classic". I despair sometimes, I really do...

I've always enjoyed this story. Some of the complaints of the previous reviewers I've considered its strengths - the fact that the Doctor and Peri are sidelined thoughout a lot of the story is an interesting departure and one that allows an exploration of other aspects of the Dr Who universe.
The other characters that take centre stage are fantastic - from the brilliant double acts of Tasembeker/Jobel, Takis/Lilt, Vogel/Kara, Grigory/Natasha (does anyone else think that they're like an alternative universe version of Star Trek DS9's Bashir and Kira?) and of course Orcini/Bostock to stand alone characters such as the DJ (Alexei Sayle!) juxtaposed with old favourite Davros who here shows other sides of his character - in particular dispensing relationship advice to Tasembeker!
It is indeed wrong that the Doctor leaves the planet in the hands of sadists Takis and Lilt, but this just goes to show that he's fallible - and perhaps suffering from a lack of information, having been out of the thick of it for a lot of the story.
This being a DVD, mention has to made of the extras, which do not disappoint. There's a 45 minute documentary "Revelation Exhumed" provides a fascinating insight into the making of the story, and a commentary by Graeme Harper (dir), Eric Saward (writer), Nicola Bryant (Peri) and Terry Molloy (Davros). Odd that Colin Baker is missing from both of these - but perhaps fitting considering his absence from a lot of the story! There are also a couple of features to beef up the story for modern viewers - subtly rendered new CGI effects to replace some of the low-budget eighties clunkers, and a 5.1 surround sound alternative audio track - painstakingly reconstructed using the original audio plus the occasional re-recording of the odd line by the original cast.
There's more too, but I'll leave you to discover them yourself when you - naturally - purchase this first class DVD.
