Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Tony Nigro
Doctor Who's greatest villains, the trash-receptacle-like cyborgs of Dalek, make their final appearance in this installment, which opened the 1987 season of the long-running BBC series. The seventh Doctor Sylvester McCoy travels through time to 1963 London with his new companion, Ace Sophie Aldred, harking back to a story begun in the series' debut episode, "An Unearthly Child" a.k.a. "100,000 B.C.". It seems the Daleks -- like Star Wars' R2-D2, only meaner -- are on the trail of time-travel technology left behind by the first Doctor William Hartnell -- and thus the Doctor declares the Daleks' days numbered. This late-run Doctor Who boasts impressive production values, and the '60s-period flashback is especially impressive for series TV.

    Why Doctor Who should never have been cancelled

    This is one of my favorate episodes of my favorate era of Doctor Who. Being a Doctor Who fan from early childhood, I truely began to really get into it on an adult level in the Sylvetor McCoy era. This is an amazingly complex and self referential episode, hinting at a dark past and intriguing future for the Doctor. Unfortunately this future wasn't realised in the TV show, because of its untimely cancellation a season later. This storyline is explored in the novels written after the show's end, to rather odd effect. Never the less, Rememberance of the Daleks, is a great story, unusually topical for Doctor Who, which tended to be a-political for the most part, addressing issues of racism and racial cleansing. For a more in depth look at the story, I recomend reading the novelisation. A fantastic example of the great stuff that was being done with the series at the end of it's first incarnation, but not a story I'd use to introduce a newcomer to the series.

    This is classic WHO!

    I've loved Dr. Who ever since they started showing it at sci fi conventions when I was 8 years old (over 30 years ago). The series began in the 1960's. I finally got to see most of the series when my local PBS station imported the series from the UK and they are slowly being released on DVD. Most of the stories are wonderfully written, and well acted. Even the charmingly low BBC budget acted to make the series (a tad hokey) even better. The doctor is a mysterious character and towards the end of the McCoy series they added a few more tidbits to make you wonder even louder Who he really was (you really have to have seen just about every episode to understand a lot of the subtedly in some of the episodes about his identity). The great point of this series was the ability to have multiple story lines going on at the same time that all were part of the ultimate solution to the issue. BBC also made great efforts to stick with continuity and not tap dance out of established WHO history all the time (like Star Trek!). This particular episode is a shining example of good WHO. If you've never watched Dr. Who before you'll probably be scratching your head at some of the humor but the story is great all the same. The guy that wrote the review above is obviously no Whovian himself. The Daleks are an old enemy but their home planet is not called Dalek, they are from Skaro, the device they are searching for in this episode only vaguely has to do with time travel. The Hand of Omega (the Gallifreyans, Time Lords, the Doctor's people, tend to name examples of their most potent technology after famous people from their world) is a Stellar Manipulator. The Daleks want it in order to create their own black hole to power their time travel technology (as the Doctor's own people have done in the far past as well). It's been awhile since I've seen this episode but I believe the Dalek's were planning on other mischief with the device as well which is why the Doctor ended up going against his normally benign methods of dealing with the bad guys. Dr. Who is great science fiction. I'd suggest the Jon Pertwee Who for the newbee and then if you like what you see the Tom Baker years are also good. Several seasons of Who are in black and white. If you like good sci fi Dr. Who will not disappoint you but you do need to watch quite a lot of it before you'll understand what's going on sometimes! Love this series.

    A touch contrived, but great fun.

    Bringing the Doctor back to Totter's Lane was a good idea, and a better reason surely could have been found. Nonetheless, this story was, overall, well produced. It contains one of my favorite scenes in the entire series... Ace going at a Dalek with a baseball bat... I admit, I love Sophie Aldred! The bit showing the Dalek going up stairs was a touch overdone, but I won't complain. At least someone finally addressed the issue! :-D
