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

As the Doctor is confronting the new Daleks aboard their ship, Amy, Churchill and Bracewell are observing by means of Bracewell's video device. On the video screen, the Doctor is standing so close to the Dalek that he is almost touching it, but in the scenes shot aboard the ship, he is standing several feet away. See more »

White Dalek: We are the paradigm of a new Dalek race. Scientist, Strategist, Drone, Eternal, and the Supreme.
The Doctor: Which would be you, I'm guessing? Well, you know, nice paint job. I'd be feeling pretty swish if I looked like you. Pretty *Supre-eme*!

As much as I'd like to say, "I loved it..."

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.
