5.0 out of 5 stars Review, 26 Oct 2010

This review is from: Doctor Who - Remembrance Of The Daleks - Special Edition [DVD] (DVD)
OK, so I'm biased. I'm a huge McCoy fan, and he was the Dr that first got me watching the show. That said, even if you are not a McCoy fan, this story is stunning: easily one of the most watchable Dr Who Stories I have seen. The plot is more accessible than many other McCoy stories and the script is crammed with great characters (Gilmore, Jensen, Ratcliffe) and dialogue (the first set of exchanges between Gilmore and the Dr). McCoy himself is class in this one, and the Cafe scene is justly famous. The only snag, from a personal perspective, is Ace. This story sees Ace in a transition stage between the kid of season 24 and the woman (Battlefield excepted) of season 26 (and later 25), and so for every wonderful scene she has there are a few that jar horribly. Her scene with mike in part 3 is a long way from the kind of portrayal she would achieve in the greatest show in the galaxy with Bellboy. The Daleks in this story are, perhaps, slightly less deadly than the Saward daleks, and Davros seems more of a ranter than in the Davison/C.Baker doctor; but both these elements seem more to do with the dynamism of the story itself than a huge change of direction(Davros gets far less screen time than in the previous 2 stories), and the Daleks themselves are still the killing machines we know them as. Add on some good extras missing on the original release and you have a great DVD. Plus Ace beats up a dalek with a baseball bat- Fantastic!
