Jon Pertwee in his prime. Alas, no longer with us, he was the archetypal, Doctor Who, bettered only, perhaps, by Tom baker: the King and master of all. This si an excellent, classic story, though, and certainly worth adding to ones library of all-time greats.

They tried to ruin it by updating the effects and one particularly poor piece of editing ( no complications), but disc 1 still presents a story that is still a wonder to behold.

Have to admit this has always been one my favorite Jon Pertwee stories, and is pretty much my into to the Daleks (although I do have vague memories of Patrick Troughton confronting the Dalek Emperor in Evil of the Daleks). What I like about it is the way it works on a few different levels - as a kid it was the Doctor and the Daleks, then coming back to again on VHS appreciating the fact that it works as a very good political drama and in some ways would have worked even if the Daleks weren't in it. This despite my video version from being in that period where the Beeb had the habit of editing the stories into 90 minute comps - before bowing to fan pressure and releasing (reissuing in this case) the stories in their original episodic form.
The thing that really enhances this is the upgrade on the Dalek voices - and if there's on thing Nick Briggs does well it's Dalek voices. One slight quibble is that the additional material is slightly out of synch with the original episode endings in a couple of places. But on the whole an excellent package that gives you the original version, and the new enhanced version. So 5 stars from this fan who's not disappointed in the least.

This two disc set contains not only the original serial as it was broadcast in 1972 but also features the same story with noticeable alterations and new additions that weren't previously there. A cynic would argue against any meddling because the story works very well still in its original format albeit with issues such as invisible bullets and a 3 Dalek attack force in the finale. The special edition however fixes all those issues and actually enhances the story as a result making this the best version of Day of the Daleks to own. Previous and rather silly looking gun fights now feel dangerous and more thrilling to watch with characters now actually looking like they are dodging real bullets. The finale has added more Daleks and new footage that all works thanks to the great decision to enhance this story with new location footage shot and added computer effects that are specifically designed to sit alongside the more dated effects. The special edition is indeed a better version of this somewhat underrated Dalek story that can easily be considered a somewhat wink to the eventual first Terminator movie. Jon Pertwee and Katy Manning are superb in this well paced four part story that is one of my favourite stories of the Pertwee years and a must have for Doctor Who fans.
