The End of the Daleks........ Spoiler: it is only the end until they eventually return in 5 series time.
28 August 2014 | by (South Wales, UK) – See all my reviews

Review for all 7 episodes:

This 7-parter seemingly ends with the destruction of the Daleks and that is suitably dramatic. The fact that they eventually returned does not diminish the power of this story as they only reappear 5 series later. That is a long gap without the most famous enemy appearing in the show. The drama and impact in this story is impressive but so too is the story idea itself with the great concept of setting events in the past, present AND future. The plot does not always make sense, for example why do the Daleks even need to test Jamie to "find the Dalek factor" but it is thrilling and interesting.

Over the course of the story with its different elements a tremendous amount of absorbing entertainment is created. We have Earth in the past, Earth in the 1960s (present day of the time) and an alien planet in the future providing contrasting backgrounds to the action. There are also some fascinating characters such as Maxtible (Marius Goring), good acting especially by Patrick Troughton and Frazer Hines with plenty of excitement and fun.

The quality of script writing from David Whitaker is as usual very high and nothing really lets this story down very much except the logic of parts of the plot. Despite that flaw it is a great adventure and a great end to series 4 leading into the superb 5th series.

My Ratings: 1, 2, 4, 5 and 7 - 10/10, Episode 3 - 9.5/10, Episode 6 - 9/10

Season 4 was a momentous season but in my view falls somewhere in the middle compared to all the other seasons rather than near the top. It has five great stories but it also has one of the show's poorest stories and three stories which are unexceptional. Innes Lloyd and Gerry Davis running of the series brought some great stories but not consistent greatness.

Average Season 4 rating: 8.65/10
