The Doctor and Martha confront a host of surviving Daleks from the Canary Wharf battle. What are those creatures in the sewers? Who is Solomon? And why are the Cult Of Skaro attempting to create a Dalek/Human hybrid...?
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
An opening TARDIS scene, in which Martha convinces the Doctor to take her on one last trip through time was cut. This matched up with the opening moments of the next story to be broadcast, "The Lazarus Experiment", in which the Doctor finally brings Martha home. See more »
The light that the Doctor points at the alien organic matter when he comes to analyse it is a Strand Pattern 765. These were not manufactured until 1972. See more »
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!
