... old ideas by Terry Nation leads to a typically poor Pertwee Dalek story
on 12 October 2015
The usual rehash of old ideas by Terry Nation leads to a typically poor Pertwee Dalek story, especially the last episode which is a complete waste of time as the story has run out of ideas by this point.
The Daleks look good and so do the Exxilons, the directing and costumes are commendable and yet as whole it doesn't quite work somehow.
The Dalek committing suicide is downright silly as is the Daleks testing their gun on a model TARDIS.
I don't know, it's all very watchable but ultimately unsatisfying.
