Doctor Who: Death to the Daleks DVD review

28 May 2012 1:10 PM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

I can only concur with Shadowlocked colleague John Bensalhia as regards the Jon Pertwee 1973 Doctor Who outing Death To The Daleks; in his review he says..

"Death To The Daleks does run, for the most part, on tried and tested lines. But it's still very enjoyable, and what’s more, does offer some interesting novelties."

We've had Penelope Wilton somehow coming back as a Harriet Jones Dalek, thereby torpedoing the credibilities of both if it had happened; countless names suggested for the next Doctor (blimey, give Mr Smith a chance), and now, inevitably, Sherlock himself has been touted as the very next Master.

Yes, Benedict Cumberbatch, currently best known as brainbox sleuth Sherlock, is “reportedly” in line to be the next Master. Whether or not this is true is anyone's guess. »
