Doctor Who: Day of the Daleks


GB, 1972
di Paul Bernard
Sceneggiatura Louis Marks – Interpreti Jon Pertwee

Pertwee’s first encounter with the Daleks, in what has been termed a ‘minor classic’, again saw them successfully conquering the Earth. From a story by Louis Marks (with a nod to Harlan Ellison’s Demon with a Glass Hand), soldiers from a future Earth controlled by Daleks travel back in time to present-day Britain to assassinate the man they hold responsible for setting in motion the series of disastrous events that ultimately led to the Dalek invasion. Although the Daleks themselves are arguably underused in this four-part story, the narrative is strong enough in itself to hold the attention, and the Ogrons, an alien race who serve the Daleks, are a commendable innovation.
