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

Having Problems With Season 5
24 May 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Don't get me wrong, i'm a huge Dr Who fan, have been for more than 30 years but I have to admit to having problems with the current Dr and his stories. It's not Matt Smith as such, he is a fine Dr and in another time and place he would be brilliant. The trouble is that he is exactly the same as David Tennant, same look, same hair, same mannerisms, same kind of companion, same stories......same everything.

When Tennant left they had the chance to take the show in a totally new direction, they have done exactly the opposite and made the show exactly the same as it was before. The Dr is the same, the companion is the same, the stories are exactly the same. The stories feel totally rushed with the Dr speaking so fast at times you can barley understand what he is saying. I know it will never happen but i'm a fan of the 4-6 part stories that made up the old Dr Who, in that format you had time to develop the story, the characters, today's stories are so rushed, and you can't build a classic story when rushed. Victory of the Daleks is no different, given time it could have been great story, but because everything needs to be crammed into 40 minutes it isn't, and never will be.
