Darleks at their best
24 May 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Brilliant story, explains it all from the word go. Tom BAker leads this episode with the best SFX I've seen I'm Tom baker's episodes.

Davros (ugly looking guy) the creator of the Darleks has his first appearance in this. This adventure is brilliant i recommend the DVD 100% to sci-fi lovers. Bit violent for younger kids but apart from that its perfect, the BBC have achieved some great stuff including this I hope they can produce new episodes with Tennant that were as fun as this.

Not many down sides to this, in some ways this beats the most recent Darlek flick with Ecclston. Nothing like a good hide behind the sofa to watch Genisis of the Darleks, EXTERMINATE!!
