4.0 out of 5 stars Lost classic released again, 13 Nov. 2003
This review is from: Doctor Who: Daleks (Dr Who) (Audio CD)
At last Evil of the Daleks is released on CD. The old tape version was slightly odd with the naration performed by another doctor and rather out of place. This newer version has the ever reliable Frazer Hines giving his well oiled, emotive naration from previous discs to a true "classic" story. As there is no visual version left, bar episode 2, this is a close fans will get to this marvellous story. There are so many plots and counter plots with the Daleks at their most evil but closely followed by Maxtible. The final episodes on Skaro are tense and the ending is something that would be rarely tried today with a series major foe being killed off (well apparently for 5 years in the series)
Also in the tin is Power of the Daleks which has a new naration by Anneke Wills (Polly). This is also an improvement over the old tape version but does lack the finesse of the Frazer Hines commentaries. The story is good and the Daleks are unusually clever for a change in what for them is a small scale plot. As the first Troughton story it is must for fans though few will recognise Troughton's portrayal from the one in Evil as he veers from almost Shakespearean acting to broad farce as the writers decide which way the Doctor would go after the Hartnell era.
My life as a Dalek is rather strange but is also rather pointless.
Overall well worth the money and the tin is rather nice to
