Product description

Product Description

The Daleks are once again seeking their creator, Davros (last seen in 'Destiny of the Daleks'), to discover a cure for the Movellan virus. Mercenaries free Davros from his prison ship, but the Kaled scientist has other ideas, and soon a Dalek civil war is underway. On twentieth century Earth the Doctor (Peter Davison), Tegan and Turlough are caught up between the rival factions and the Earth rebels, but they are already part of a larger plan to destroy Gallifrey.


The Doctor Who adventure "Resurrection of the Daleks" marked the Doctor's first encounter with his most famous foe since 1979's "Destiny of the Daleks" five years earlier, and Peter Davison's only full-scale battle with the cybernetic aliens. Weakened by a Movellan virus the Daleks assault a space station prison where Davros is being held. The Daleks plan to use duplicates of the Doctor and his companions to assassinate leading Timelords, and further duplicates to take over the Earth. The action is split between the space station and abandoned London riverside warehouses, and is notable for its grim tone and high body count. The duplicate police-assassins recall the Autons from the Jon Pertwee "Spearhead from Space" (1970) and proved controversial on original broadcast. Also notable is that although the show was designed as a four-part adventure it was transmitted in two double-length episodes.

This edition presents the story in the original four parts. Meanwhile there are more than the usual quota of name guest stars, including Rodney Bewes, Rula Lenska and Lesley Grantham. The tale also marks Janet Fielding's final appearance as Tegan. In every respect this is a key adventure in the history of Doctor Who, even if the tense, incident-packed story is ultimately weighed down by too many elements to resolve them all satisfactorily.

On the DVD: Doctor Who: Resurrection of the Daleks is accompanied by a warm and highly jocular commentary from Peter Davison, Janet Fielding and director Mathew Robinson. A new 18-minute "On Location" documentary intriguingly revisits the now upmarket waterfront locations with interviews featuring producer John Nathan Turner, writer Eric Saward and Matthew Robinson. A seven-minute clip from Breakfast Time spotlights Janet Fielding and John Nathan-Turner, and composers Brian Hodgson and Malcolm Clarke. Also included are seven minutes of deleted and extended scenes, a BBC1 trailer and a photo gallery that plays automatically for three minutes, set to sound effects. There is optional on-screen information text and selectable subtitles for the programmes and commentary. The sound is available in broadcast mono, a remarkably effective Dolby Digital 5.1 remix, and as a mono music only track. TARDIS Cam No. 4 is a very short new digital animation. --Gary S Dalkin

This story scores so highly because it stands up well even today as a terse drama with much better than average special effects, and some really quite horrifying moments- look out for the effects of the daleks' plague bacillus near the beginning. The acting is unhampered by hamminess, which is a marked improvement on the 1970's. Peter Davison's performance is very good (as good as, say, Tom Baker in Pyramids of Mars), as well as those of Turlough (probably the Doctor's most interesting companion) and Tegan (although the deus ex machina of her literally running off at the end was rather silly). The plot is somewhat muddled- for example, why are the movellan virus cannisters put on earth, and why doesn't the Dalek Supreme (who is following in the ill-fated footsteps of the Dalek Emperor, the Golden Dalek and the Black Dalek) insist Davros accompany them off the station? But, you hardly notice this in a story that rivets the attention right from the first scene, where some shockingly cold-blooded policemen machine-gun down a group of escapees from the future. As I said, the special effects are much better than in previous dalek stories: you get to see the kaled mutants inside punctured dalek casings, and finally the daleks get a decent death ray. Only one real disappointment: Davros for me will always be the Michael Wisher version from Genesis- for a start the make-up and facemask in the original story were incomparably better.

A cracking episode this one. I remember it the first time round in 1984. Peter Davison was always my favourite Doctor, and he was on fine form here. A strong story line, excellent supporting cast, great location and some surprisingly gruesome special effects make for a first rate episode. A 'must purchase' if you are a fan of the Davison era.

The writer of Resurrection of the Daleks, Eric Saward, stated that his story was the worst one in the programmes history. This is far from true. Resurrection boasts some excellent scenes, an engaging if somewhat convoluted storyline and good pace direction from Matthew Robinson. Broadcast as part of Peter Davison's final and best season, Resurrection never pauses for breath, and is a real contrast to other stories from this period such as Terminus and Four to Doomsday which seemed slow moving and padded out. This probably makes it more appealing to viewers today who want to see fast moving television. The dark and gritty adventure has an air of gloominess about it, from the opening scene in which a group of escaped prisoners from the far future, are ruthlessly murdered by Police officers, in the derelict docklands of 1980s London, to the final scene in which long serving companion Tegan unhappily works away from her life with The Doctor. The docklands of London are a central location for this story, prior to their redevelopment as luxury apartment blocks. Here they present an image of a decaying, haunted area of London, abandoned for nearly a century. An ideal location then for The Daleks to hide some canister's of a virus, which has infected their race. Meanwhile in the far future, The Daleks rescue their creator Davros from his prison on a space station, with the intention of getting him to develop an antidote to this virus. The Doctor and his companions, having been dragged in the Tardis to modern day London via the Daleks time corridor, come across the lone survivor of the earlier massacre Stein, but is he all he seems, and why are The Daleks so intent on capturing The Doctor.Read more ›

Resurrection of the Daleks does for the Daleks what Earthshock did for the Cybermen. It updates the concept by drawing extensively on passed successes. If Destiny of the Daleks was the story which disgraced the Doctor's most famous arch-enemies, then Resurrection of the Daleks has surely redeemed them. After Earthshock it was difficult to see how Eric Saward could come up with a story as good, but he has succeeded in doing just that. Almost everything about this story was first rate, but I would especially highlight the hunt for the Dalek creature in the warehouse, the releasing of Davros, the confrontation between the Doctor and Davros and the climactic battle and explosion. Maurice Colbourne was superb as Lytton and the exchanges of dialogue between him and the Supreme Dalek were a delight.The worrying thing about Resurrection of the Daleks though is the sheer number of elements that it plunders from earlier stories. Some of the main examples are: The Daleks presence in London with an army of controlled humans is straight out of The Dalek Invasion of Earth; the Daleks' ability to time travel and the fact that they specifically want the Doctor hail from The Chase; Davros's wish to restore instinct is suggestive of The Evil of the Daleks, as is the Dalek civil war which occurred between the Daleks loyal to the Dalek Supreme and those loyal to Davros; Day of the Daleks is commemorated by the obligatory flashback sequence with the Doctor tied to the operating table; the Doctor's hesitation at killing Davros was a deliberate re-enactment of the similar scene in Genesis of the Daleks and finally the war with the Movellans brought us bang up to date with Destiny of the Daleks.Read more ›
