5.0 out of 5 stars Sontar-Ha!, 18 May 2009
This review is from: Doctor Who - The Sontaran Experiment / Genesis of the Daleks [1975] [VHS] [1963] (VHS Tape)
Nice VHS set where you get two serials for the price of one! The Sontaran Experiment is one of Doctor Who's shorter stories; with just two episodes it bridged the gap between the intriguing 'Ark in Space' and the epic 'Genesis of the Daleks'. The story itself is not that memorable but it sees the return of The brutish Sontarans - well one brutish Sontaran - who is experimenting on human subjects in order to spearhead an invasion of Earth.

Generally considered by fans to be the best Doctor Who story ever made; Genesis of the Daleks is a winning combination of the evil titular mutants, the first appearance of their Machiavellian creator 'Davros', Tom Baker and Lis Sladen on top form, and a dilemma that sums The Doctor up in one breathless moment. Whilst it naturally suffers from being dated (it was made 34 years ago!) it still stands up as a great slice of Doctor Who from the show's golden period. Baker had settled into the role after a handful of stories, and his Doctor is all manic action and charisma; the scene where he debates with himself whether or not he has the right to destroy The Daleks before they have had a chance to unleash their evil and destruction on the universe is a series high; of that there is no doubt.
