5.0 out of 5 stars Best dalek story of the 80's, 24 Sept. 2007
This story was first broadcasted in 1985, and followed the trend set by the pervious year's 'Resserection of the daleks'. With lots of darkness and comedy, this is one of the best dalek stories I've seen.
Plot: The 6th Doctor, and his companion Peri arravie on the Planet Necros at Tranquil Repose, where the Galaxy's rich and famouse who have been nearly killed by disease are held in suspended animation untill a cure can be found for what killed them. They've come to pay respect to an old friend of the doctor. However, things aren't all they seem to be. For deep below gound in the catacombes, Davros, posing as the Great Healer, is turning half the sleeping population of Tranquil Repose into an army of daleks, and the other half into food to sell to a staving Galaxy...
This is a brillant story, and is a huge lead forward from 'Resserection'. The daleks are back at their best, and Coiln Baker's acting is also good. The comedy is really good, and the D.J. is brilliant. The only drawback is that some of the acting isn't very good.

Apart from that, it is brillant, and I would recomend it to any Doctor Who fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not brilliant, but very good., 23 Sept. 2007
When broardacasted in 1984, this story marked the return of the daleks after a 5 year absence from the t.v. screen. And they returned in a very good story, with darkest and a bit of comedy, and a lot of killing. In fact, more people(and creatures) die in this story than in the first terminator film!
Plot: The Daleks, deverstated by a virus, attack and take over a prison ship in the future to resuce their creator Davros, so that he can find a cure for the virus. At the same time, they create an army of dalek controled clones to take their places in goverments around present-day earth in a attempt to conquer earth in the 20th century and alter history-again. At the same time, they trap the doctors tardis in a time corridor and send the doctor and his companions to London, 1984, so that they can capture him, clone him and his companions, and send them to Gallifray to kill the Time Lords. However Davros, who have no intention of being used by his creations again, has other ideas...
Good points: This story, as I've already said, is very good, with lots of darkness and horror. Peter Davison is good, and it is nice to see a future star of Corination Street as one of the main characters.
Bad points: With so much happening at once, its oftern differcult to work out whats going on. The vocie of the supreme dalek is, instead of the traditional low voice, has a high pitched voice which means that some times it's difficut to work out what the dalek is saying, and the acting of some of the main characters is some times terrible.

Despite the things above, this is a good story. It is by no way the best dalek story, but it is better than some stories of the 1980's.
