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

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

The Doctor: [to Supreme Dalek] You're bluffing. Deception's second nature to you. There isn't a sincere bone in your body. There isn't a *bone* in your body.

Not bad at all but not top quality either.
19 May 2014 | by (South Wales, UK) – See all my reviews

Great moments and generally very entertaining episode, meaning that other reviewers are in my opinion being overly harsh in their scores but there are issues which detract from what could have been easily better.

Amy Pond continues to show early signs of problematic behaviour in that she always tends towards unlikely recklessness and inconsistent actions as well an over confidence which is slightly unlikeable.

There are too many implausible aspects in the plot such as far too quick development of technology, less than believable character actions and a conclusion where a character overcomes a major problem in far too easy, unscientific and unbelievable way. Nice if you can TOTALLY suspend disbelief but I prefer to keep some sort of logic.

Still good, entertaining TV but not in Doctor Who's best quality.
