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 itself with the great concept of setting events in the past, present AND future.

Over the course of the story with its different elements a tremendous amount of interest 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 very good characters, a good interesting plot and plenty of excitement and fun.

Acting levels are high and nothing really lets this story down very much. It is a great end to series 4 leading into the superb 5th series.
