Doctor Who Review: S08E02 Into The Dalek

<div class=“tG QF” style=“color: #404040;”>I was really looking forward to this episode. We’re now free of the encum­brance of regen­er­a­tion and able to see the 12th Doctor in his own envi­ron­ment. Plus a return of the Daleks. Granted Dalek stories have always been hit and miss affairs, but when they work they can be really good. … Continue reading Doctor Who Review: S08E02 Into The Dalek

<a href=“http://eoghann.com/2014/04/doctor-review-power-daleks/power-of-the-daleks-544x350” rel=“attachment wp-att-118418″> Unfor­tu­nately despite being the first story for the Second Doctor and thus a rather pivotal moment in Doctor Who history, The Power of the Daleks is a story which is almost entirely missing from the BBC archives. Which does make it rather diffi­cult to watch, never mind review. Some years ago (okay it … Continue reading Doctor Who Review: The Power Of The Daleks

Now that the season is avail­able in its entirety on Hulu+ I thought it might be inter­esting to do a re-watch and see how my opin­ions have changed or … Continue reading Doctor Who Re-Review: Season 7 Episode 1 — Asylum of The Daleks

<b>Doctor Who Reviews — The Dalek Inva­sion Of Earth At 50 years its inevitable of course that 60s Doctor Who shows its age and minis­cule budget. I’ve read that the budget for some episodes was as little as 2,000 UK pounds, which trans­lates to about $25,000 per episode today. Think about that for a moment. What sort of alien inva­sion … Continue reading Doctor Who Reviews — The Dalek Inva­sion Of EarthAt 50 years its inevitable of course that 60s Doctor…

It’s also the first story to show off the style that Moffat is aiming for this season, that of big budget, done in one, action stories.
