  • Doctor Who - The Genesis Of The Daleks
    Faizan Sadiq

    This is one the best Classic stories around. A mix of danger, Daleks and Tom Baker's Doctor created a fantastic piece of writing.

  • Doctor Who - The Genesis Of The Daleks
    Massimo Luciani

    The Doctor could wipe out the Daleks at their birth but doing so wouldn't he become like them? In this strong moral story the Doctor is sent by the Time Lord on the planet Skaro at the time of the Daleks' creation to stop them before they could become a danger for all the universe and he has to face their creator, the brilliant but fascist scientist Davros. Skaro is devastated by the long war between the Kaleds and the Thals and Davros uses his influence to impose a dictatorship over the Kaleds and his scientific knowledge to create new weapons to annihilate the Thals and plan the future of the Kaleds in their evolved form - the Daleks - but he tempers with the new creatures' DNA to take away their conscience and moral sense and create a xenophobic species that can become the supreme power of the universe. The Doctor and Davros face each other in a mind battle where Davros doesn't sound like a megalomaniac but speaks words that can be persuasive to people who are facing a crisis and this makes the story moral but not moralistic. The boxset is made even better by a second DVD full of extras, particularly the making of this adventure with interviews to members of the cast and crew and a history of the Daleks in Doctor Who. This adventure was voted n. 1 Doctor Who story ever by Doctor Who Magazine readers and while opinions are different this is certainly one of the adventures every fan must have.
