Doctor Who - The Dalek Invasion of Earth [DVD]
on 11 May 2014
Bought this as a gift for my Dad, who seemed relatively pleased with it. In hindsight, although I'm a fan of the earlier doctor who's, some episodes such as this, unsurprisingly appear much more dated than others; not just in set designs, costumes or special effects, but the acting, scripting, editing and camera work. For me the story was a little dull, although it was interesting to see an early Dalek invasion of London, reminded me at times of 28 Days Later amongst others, when concerning the subject narrative. The video quality isn't great, I'm assuming they haven't made much effort to restore the picture quality on these releases, but it is still of standard quality. Nevertheless, if your a fan of the early series then I'm sure you'll be glad to add this to the collection.
