A great Who story,
This review is from: Doctor Who - The Dalek Invasion Of Earth [DVD]  (DVD)
The second Dalek outage was a fantastic one! Even better than the first!
This is Doctor Who at its best. The beginning episode sets a dark tone (check out the posters on the wall about dumping bodies).
The flying saucers are the worse I've ever seen - and this I think adds to the charm of the series. It shows how a low budget production can be great if the scripts, plot, and acting is just right.
This actually feels quite epic and is great watched in one go as well as being watched over a period of time.
The special features are top notch (if the flying saucers REALLY bug you then you can watch CGI smooth ones instead!) interviews are fab and the commentary is worth listening to.
The end of this story maybe explains why the Doctor seems rather obessed planet Earth and its people. It gets people who think Hartnell's doctor is self obsessed and heartless to re-assess their views on him.
The Dalek coming out of the Thames is one of the all time great Doctor Who moments.
