of the Daleks
of the Daleks is perhaps the best Doctor Who adventure ever made. It has
political, technological and historical allegories, excellent acting, directing
and, of course, Daleks. It details the creation of the Mk III travel machines
by their genius creator, and the war with the Thals which preceded the very first
Doctor Who adventure.
Terry nation delivers a strong script but it is Robert
Holmes script editing influence which ensures this story ends up as a tight, well-characterised
Complete First Series - New Series 2005
This box set is an
absolutely must for anyone who remotely enjoyed the new series of Doctor Who.
Unlikely the previous individual releases of episodes, the box set has extras
coming out of its ears. And whereas some box sets just have extras on the final
disc, this brilliant package has a selection of extras on each disk, plus the
entire set of Doctor Who confidential (cut down) on another disk.
much needs saying about the episodes themselves but commentaries on certain episodes
are almost worth the price alone. The commentaries of Rose, The Unquiet
Dead and Dalek are of particular note and the video diaries of certain
members of the team are very interesting and fun. The TARDIS container is a nice
package and overall, believe me this set of DVDs is well worth the asking price,
or probably more!
Films Collectors Edition
If its classic 60s Dalek action
you want, you can't do better than this brilliant set featuring the two Peter
Cushing Dalek films that were made for the big screen. Full of colour and fun,
and boasting the greatest number of Daleks ever seen on screen at once (until
the new series cheated with computer graphics) these two films are wonderful for
younger viewers and have plenty to amuse older viewers too. Featuring Dr Who
and the Daleks, which was an adaptation of the first ever Dalek story, and
Daleks Invasion: Earth 2150AD, these two multi-colour Dalek extravagansas
are a must-have for Doctor Who fans and come with a selection of great extras
including the very interesting Dalekmania documentary.
Invasion Of Earth - 1964
In this brilliantly restored DVD,
the Daleks return for their second appearance in Doctor Who. Featuring famous
scenes on Westminster Bridge and with new impressive CGI Dalek Saucers over London,
this DVD release is a must for anyone interested in the Daleks.
the first Doctor, William Hartnell, and being the final appearance of his granddaughter
Susand, this exciting six-episode adventure travels from the banks of the Thames
to the heliport where the Dalek saucer has landed, to the the mine where the Dalek's
bizarre plans are revealed!
of the Daleks
Molloy's first appearance as Davros and Eric Saward's first Dalek story has a
lot of action and follows on from the previous Destiny of the Daleks that
had been largely written by Douglas Adams. This story was first Dalek story to
have no input from their creator Terry Nation and also sees the departure of the
The action switches at pace from a warehouse by the Thames
to a space station and Dalek ship, and contains intrigue and sub-plots galore.
It is also notable for the start of the Dalek civil war which was a plot carried
through the next two stories.
of the Daleks
Colin Baker story is often said to be writer Eric Saward's finest work. His use
of the Daleks is not suited to everyone's taste but his characterisation and dialogue
is good. This story continues the Davros storyline begun in Destiny of the Daleks
and advances it to the next stange, with the appearance of Davros' new breed of
of the Daleks
final chapter in the Dalek Civil war trilogy is a superbly-written and action-packed
story by Ben Aaronovich. His continuation of the the development of Davros' own
Daleks in Revelation sees two entirely separate factions fighting it out
for control of The Hand of Omega, a vastly powerful Time Lord device left on Earth
by the first Doctor in 1963 which the seventh Doctor has finally come to collect.
This story has plent of references to the past for die-hard fans of the series
and lots of pace to keep the casual view amused.
Holmes meets Doctor Who Music for Brass & Saxophone Quartet
something rare and quite interesting for the die-hard fan. Carey Blyton provided
the distinctive incidental music for Death to the Daleks, and also The
Silurians. Those eerie, creepy and sometimes rather jolly pieces of music
which accompany the Daleks on Exxilon are all part of the Carey Blyton music performed
by the Saxophone Quartet.
The interesting and memorable compositions for
both this Dalek story and The Silurians form part of this CD which also includes
other music composed for TV by Carey Bylton, which also includes Sherlock Holmes
and other TV work.
Evil of the Daleks
Now one of the few ways to experience this
lost classic, this Audiobook presents the complete soundtrack of perhaps the greatest
Dalek story every written, The Evil of the Daleks. It boasts an array of
wonderful features including humanised Daleks, the first visit to the Dalek home
planet Skaro since it became the hub of the Dalek's galactic empire and, of course
the incredible Dalek Emperor who was first envisaged here but also now known to
modern audiences through the new TV series.
At one time intended to be
the final end of the Daleks (where have we heard that before?) this story is an
epic seven episode which leaves the Dalek world engulfed in civil war and brought
the new companion of Victoria into the TARDIS.
Who and the Daleks Audiobook
William Russell, who played the
role of Ian in the original television series, reads this David Whitaker novel
in complete and unabridged form, first published in 1964.
The story combines
the first episode of Doctor Who with the second serial, thereby elinimating the
less than gripping adventure taking place in a stone-age setting. The school teachers
of Ian and Barbara are thrown straight into the Dalek nightmare in this remarkable
The book was one of the first Target Books range of Doctor Who
titles, and it is one of the most popular adaptations from the programme, and
also one of the most unique both in its first person perspective and the liberties
it takes with the telling of the story when compared to the origina version.
of the Daleks
A regeneration story featuring the Daleks, what
could be more exciting?! This is the second Doctor's first story and therefore
the first story ever to feature the concept of regeneration. With the video sadly
destroyed from the BBC archives, this book by John Peel is one of few ways you
can enjoy this lost classic. Although embelished with lots of Peel's own ideas
it remains faithful to David Whitaker's original story which feautres the Daleks
at their most cunning.
Although disliked by Dalek creator Terry Nation,
those who remember this story agree it was one of the best.
