Storyline

The Daleks have begun their transformation to humanoid form however the human-Dalek hybrid, Dalek Sec, is raising doubts among the remaining three machine Daleks. He is showing human traits and emotions: he changes his mind, shows compassion by sparing some of the transients in Hooverville and to the consternation of the machine Daleks, suggests their old ways were wrong. When Dalek Sec asks for the Doctor's assistance in relocating them to a new planet, the other Daleks rebel. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

This is the first episode of the revived series to use the convention of the classic Doctor Who series of naming Dalek-centered episodes as "(blank) of the Daleks" (Remembrance of the Daleks, Power of the Daleks, etc.). This convention would later be used for series 5's "Victory of the Daleks." See more »

Goofs

Dr. Who tells the Daleks that "this planet hasn't even split the atom yet". Lord Rutherford first split the atom in 1917, at least 12 years before the Great Depression and the first Hooverville was established. See more »

not too shabby
29 April 2007 | by See all my reviews

The Daleks have proved to be a bit of a nostalgic winner for the new Who but i'm thinking they may be on the verge of stretching it too far now after this ending. As with the other recent episodes featuring the Daleks, the Mill has for the most part done the series proud with excellent CG work. The big let down here was the very questionable prosthetic work on the Dalek/human hybrid which could have been so much more had it been a combination of prosthetics and CG – Davy Jones style. The Doctor Who Confidential series always see the production crew chattering about budget constraints so I guess that's the answer to that one. Perhaps had RTD not indulged his passion/obsession with pretty boys and got a Desperate Housewives stud muffin in for a five week filming schedule some extra cash may have been available for post production. I'm sure one more Brit actor giving it their best 'New Yoykar' accent would have made little difference to the overall effect. I love the Doctor Who franchise but fear that they will soon get very stale. If you could travel to any point and time in the universe – why would you always end up on earth – usually in Cardiff? If the budget is there to turn Wales into NYC – can't it turn it into another planet instead?
