Two classic Dalek adventures from different eras.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Doctor Who - Planet Of The Daleks  / Revelation Of The Daleks  (Limited Edition Box Set) [VHS] (VHS Tape)
This package offers you a superb opportunity to watch how the series changed and, more specifically, how the Daleks changed over time. 'Planet Of The Daleks' is from 1973 and stars Jon Pertwee and Katy Manning. This was before Davros (the Dalek creator) was introduced to the series. The second story, 'Revelation Of The Daleks' was made 12 years later and stars Colin Baker and Nicola Bryant. The series had changed a great deal in the intervening years. The effects were much better, Davros had become a mandatory part of Dalek stories and Doctor Who had become awash with celebrity actors. 'Revelation' for example features well known comedy actors Alexei Sayle, Eleanor Bron, William Gaunt and future star of Keeping Up Appearances, Clive Swift. However, of these guest appearances, only Alexei Sayle plays a comic part.
