User Reviews

 
iconic imagery throughout.
12 June 2017 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

Barbara, Dortmun and Jenny set off on a dangerous mission across London, intent on reaching goods in a nearby Museum, to build a new more effective bomb.

Good to see Barbara performing in a heroic way, a character I would say that hailed from the 1950's rather then the 60's, prepared to fight and attack the Daleks, she was well written here.

Those scenes of the Daleks roaming the side of the Thames, the Palace of Westminster in the background are some of the strongest images in the show's history. I wonder if we will ever see the Daleks in Trafalgar Square ever again. A deliberate attempt to have The Daleks trampling over everything British.

A wonderful, iconic episode 10/10
