A tribute to the monsters that put "Doctor Who" (1963) on the map, featuring interviews with their creator/writer Terry Nation, their designer Raymond Cusick, operator John Scott Martin and voice artist Roy Skelton, as well as clips and three entire episodes from the BBC archives. Written by
In the early 1990`s the BBC released several videos dedicated to DOCTOR WHO featuring random episodes . In many ways these were a precursor to the concept of the DVD but they were also very patchy with episodes being very unrepresentative of their eras , the video featuring THE TROUGHTON YEARS was especially poor . This release entitled DALEKS- THE EARLY YEARS is almost certainly the best of the range
We`re treated to interviews with dalek operator John Scott Martin , Dalek designer Raymond Cusack , Dalek voiceman Roy Skelton and we see archive footage of Terry Nation - The man who created the Daleks for the show . We`re also treated to two full episodes of the epic Dalek tale THE DALEKS MASTERPLAN and the soul surviving episode of EVIL OF THE DALEKS a story of legendary acclaim amongst fans who saw it in 1967 . On top of that we see several clips of what was then recently discovered footage from the show that was thought to be lost forever
As I said this is the best of the YEARS tape , but I`ve got to ask if this is so good then why were most of the previous releases so bad ?
