Storyline

The Doctor and Amy travel back in time at the request of Prime Minister Winston Churchill who needs the doctor's help. It's the early years of World War II and London is under constant aerial attack from Nazi Germany. Churchill is proud of his new weapon and wants to show it off but the Doctor is shocked when he realizes that it's actually a Dalek. There are three of them and Dr. Bracewell claims to be the sole inventor. It's not all that simple however and the Doctor uncovers a plot to re-create the Dalek race. He races to stop them before they can escape and once again become the scourge of the universe. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

A couple of times during the episode the Doctor flashes a peace sign. This is a favorite pose of Matt Smith on red carpets. During WW II, that sign was actually a V for Victory sign, often used by Churchill himself, among others. See more »

Goofs

When a member of the military personnel calls on the spitfires in space attack, he yells into the earpiece of the radio communicator. He tries to correct this by switching to the mouthpiece, but ends up staying with the earpiece. See more »

As much as I'd like to say, "I loved it..."
24 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I can't.

This was honestly one of the more contrived episodes since the series' reprisal five years ago.

Moffat has brought back the Daleks, the villains that have been run into the ground over and over again!

The previous week's episode had the same type of fear with the smiling faces in the carnival booths that one would typical expect of Moffat's writing; however, the only "victory" in this week's episode is surprisingly with Amy and The Doctor as these two actors start sliding into their respective roles.

Not the actors' fault here, just a thin plot.
