Storyline

With two factions of Daleks involved in a race war on Earth, the Doctor takes care of old business by having the Hand of Omega ceremoniously but quietly buried in a churchyard. His actions do not go unobserved, and leaving behind a bored Ace without a purposeful outlet could spell trouble as well. Written by statmanjeff

Average Dalek story.

Doctor Who: Remembrance of the Daleks: Part Two starts as the Doctor (Sylvester McCoy) & Ace (Sophie Aldred) escape from the Dalek, get hold of an anti tank missile & destroy it (!). The Doctor is convinced that there are two different warring Dalek factions who want to do battle on Earth, he convinces Gilmore (Simon Williams) not to make any rash moves as so to alert either side. Meanwhile Ace finds herself in trouble again as in an effort to help she goes back to the school & finds more Daleks there waiting for her...

Episode 2 from season 25 this Doctor Who adventure originally aired here in the UK during October 1988, directed by Andrew Morgan this has been OK so far but not exactly anything to write home about. The script by Ben Aaronovitch is still in self-referential mode & there's a particularly geeky scene in which while just as Ace goes out the TV is switched on & tuned into the BBC where the announcer says that it's a quarter past five & the first episode of a new science fiction series is about to start called Doc.. & then it cuts, now if that isn't the ultimate in self reference then I don't know what is. Then there are character's who recognise the name Doctor but thought he was 'older & grey haired', this is all well & good but beyond these little moments dotted throughout the episode there isn't much else happening in Remembrance of the Daleks. The story isn't great, apart from the end there's not really any Dalek action & while it's still fun & watchable to my eyes it's not any sort of classic.

Again not much in the way of special effects although I do like the gold & grey colour scheme of the Daleks first seen in the Colin Baker story Revelation of the Daleks (1985) & also used here. The Doctor makes reference to the planet Spiridon from the Jon Pertwee story Planet of the Daleks (1973) but doesn't pronounce it correctly, yet another sloppy production error I suppose. In reality the location for Coal Hill School was St. John's School in Hammersmith which was between terms.

Remembrance of the Daleks: Part Two is alright, I didn't think too much of it but then I don't particularly like this era in Doctor Who's history. It's watchable enough but far from a classic, Dalek fans might like it more than I do though.
