Daleks with a difference.

Review of all 4 episodes:

This adventure has the Daleks in a bit of a different kind of story to usual. The TARDIS is stranded on a planet with all its power drained. The Doctor and Sarah Jane venture out onto the planet and come under attack from natives of the planet called Exxilons. They also find a small group of humans who are similarly stranded and powerless. The end of the first episode has a great cliffhanger as another ship arrives and as The Doctor and the humans gather to meet the ship's occupants, thinking it will be a rescue party they are faced with Daleks. A pity the title gives away their presence but the cliffhanger scene is done brilliantly.

Instead of being the usual invaders or destroyers, in this story the Daleks are also stranded on the planet with their ship and all their weapons drained of power. They have to agree a truce with the humans and work together to try to find a way to overcome their power loss and escape from the planet. Of course the Daleks evil intent is ever present and they quickly try to gain the upper hand.

This adventure has credible, well acted human characters, great performances from Pertwee and Elisabeth Sladen in the lead roles and interesting use of the Daleks. The Exxilons are decent background characters with a friendly Exxilon providing an endearing alien character with a little depth. There is plenty of action and thrills. The 'roots' of the city are an interesting idea and very well realised as robotic tentacles.

The final part is a little disappointing in my opinion compared to the preceding episodes as the quest through the city does not really excite me. Also after the great cliffhanger to episode 1 the 'cliffhanger' to episode 3 is really lame. However, these niggles are relatively minor. All in all this is an excellent Dalek story and an excellent sci-fi adventure.
