quiet good for a darvos story
14 December 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

OK this is a review for both two parts I was a huge fan of the new series since after watching some of the old eps with the 9th doctor and series 2 of the 10th doctor I want to get some of the classic eps out on DVD and this dalek story was my first one to get on DVD Resurrection of the daleks may not be the best dalek story of all time but its not as bad as Fear her for the new series. Their are few things I don't like in this eps 1.not enough daleks 2. darvos was overused in this eps I really think he could appear less 3. the wired faces scare me but all in all Resurrection is a good story but not as good as the other dalek stories like The daleks or Planet of the daleks its still wrath watching. if your a darvos then you will enjoy this eps but if your not then watch day of the daleks instead 7 out of 10 wrath watching
