Customer Review

on 11 January 2012
The Space Museum... what a stinker! No thanks, not my cup of tea.

On paper it's quite a clever idea, certainly one that had potential. So what happened? It's beyond me, but I honestly find it so dry and boring.

The Chase is of greater interest if only for the fact that it contains Daleks. This story is just before my first real DW memory. Which was in fact ep 10 of Dalek Masterplan, the scene where the Dalek is imobilized by the rocks.
But when I first rediscovered this story in the 80's and it was so good to see Daleks on this scale. Viewed again with more objective eyes it leaves a lot to be desired.

It's almost like a practice run for the far superior 'Dalek Masterplan', and no doubt quite ambitious for its day.

The scene atop the Empire State Building is such a send up, and yet Peter plays it with such charm it's hard to do anything but smile. The middle episodes are somewhat ridiculous, it's almost as though they really didn't know what to do with the Daleks in this story.

But for me, the last two episodes redeem the piece from slipping into farce and the departure of Ian and Barbara is genuinely touching. And there is a real police box in there too.
