Traitors, battles, reveals, Part 3 is a rich episode.
24 October 2015 | by (Swansea, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A foolish Ace is rescued from the Daleks at the School. The Doctor heads to the cellar destroying the trans mat ensuring no more Imprerial Daleks can get through. Mr Ratcliffe who's in the employ of the Renegade Daleks locates the burial of the Hand of Omega, his men dig it up and transport it back to the Warehouse, but not before causing a power surge, which informs the Imperial Dalek Mother ship of its whereabouts. The Doctor lets Ace know what the Hand of Omega is, and he tells her why there are two sets of Daleks desperate to acquire it. Mike is revealed as a traitor to Ratcliffe. The identity of the battle controller is revealed, and they inform the Supreme Dalek that the Imperial Mother ship is coming in to orbit. Keen to protect the Hand of Omega the Supreme orders its troops back to defend it.

I think it's a great episode, firstly it looks really smart, the clothes, costumes and sets are great. The scenes on board the Dalek Mother ship look really good, very imaginative. I also like the effect of the shuttle landing on the playground.

The Supreme Dalek also looks really good, as does the Emperor. The concept of The Supreme breaking away defying the Emperor is also a clever one.

A little dialogue heavy at times, it felt a little like the Doctor was explaining a lot to Ace, but it all added to the story. I thought the logic behind the battle computer was rather good, and the reveal of its operator was great, I'm sure many would have been expecting it to have been Davros.

9/10
