Trivia

The color videotape of this episode was wiped by the BBC and it remained in the archives for 30 years only as a 16mm black and white telerecording. However, the Doctor Who (1963) Restoration Team were able to restore color to the episode using the new "chroma dots" technology for the serial's release on DVD in 2009. See more »

Dalek story of good quality
19 October 2014 | by (South Wales, UK) – See all my reviews

Review of all 6 episodes:

Following on from the Daleks appearance in the final part of the previous story this story follows their latest plot to conquer the galaxy. The Doctor has been injured and calls for help from the Time Lords. They cause the TARDIS to travel to the planet where the Daleks are massing their army and perfecting their new weapons (including a power of invisibility). While The Doctor goes into a coma Jo ventures out onto the jungle like planet. They end up teaming up with a small group of Thals to try to stop the Daleks.

The story is very decent with excellent moments and a good helping of interesting action. There is good dialogue and acting and whilst far from perfect this is an enjoyable and good quality adventure. Parts 2 and 6 are the strongest episodes.
