Sarah Jane Smith: You don't seem too disappointed. We've failed. Haven't we?
Doctor Who: Failed? No, not really. You see, I know that although the Daleks will create havoc and destruction for millions of years, I know also that out of their evil must come something good.

A fantastic conclusion, the serial deserves it's place as an all time classic.
23 April 2018 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

This fantastic, gripping, engaging, fast paced classic ends in some style, the cliffhanger in the previous episode was one of the show's best, meaning this one starts off brilliantly, and ends in the same manner. It oozes quality from start to finish, it truly is everything Dr Who should be, wonderful drama, gripping, and scary enough to have the kids hiding behind the sofa. Definite Nazi inspired torture, a context that would have been very memorable for many of the older viewers, the cruelty, uniforms, salutes, style of torture etc. all chilling. I love the way that the ending of Genesis ties into both 'The Daleks' from Hartnell's era, and Destiny of the Daleks, which Tom would appear in a few years later. The writing is impeccable, the performances first rate, Baker shining through in commanding fashion, he's definitely playing this one with a straight bat, I've criticised him a little in stories like Creature in the Pit and Destiny of the Daleks, as I didn't feel he was taking it all that seriously, in these early years he was definitely on point and some. Some pretty decent special effects for the time too.

Perfect finale to the perfect story, would The Daleks ever reach these heights or level of impact again? I genuinely don't think so. If new executive producer Chris Chibnall plans to use the Daleks, I urge him to watch this.

Perfect, 10/10
