This is the first of a two part story, it is set in 1930's New York. The Doctor and Martha arrive in New York, there is, however, trouble as the Daleks return once again, this time attempting to create a Dalek/Human hybrid creature in the New York sewers! These two episodes also see the return of the Dalek Sec and the Cult of Skaro. Written by
While trying to escape from the Daleks in the Empire State Building, one of the American characters sees the elevator coming up to the floor that they're on and refers to it as a "lift". An American would call it an elevator, not a lift. See more »

The Empire State Building must be completed in time.
It will be. Trust me. Labor is cheap and that man can be replaced.
The plan must not fail! We calculate the gamma strike has accelerated! We need more bodies *immmediately*!

I really can't pass the three previous and very positive user comments by in silence. I completely disagree. This was a dull, cliché-ridden and predictable episode which I'm not likely to ever watch again. I really don't see how anybody can find the pig slaves either funny, scary or in any other way interesting. They were toe-cringingly awful.
After three great episodes, season three is finally showing that it can't maintain that high standard, which is too bad. And to make it worse, it makes a double episode out of this dog. Gah.
And the Daleks AGAIN?! A good thing should not be over-used! Get it into yer skulls, Who-people!
5 out of 10.
